Homework Assignments and Textbook

Homework assignments will be done through Enhanced WebAssign based of the textbook "Calculus: Early Transcendentals" (7th edition) by James Stewart. Your purchasing options are contained within this microsite link: http://www.cengagebrain.com/micro/UMassCalculus132_233. You have the option of purchasing a stand-alone Instant Access Code to Enhanced WebAssign (with an electronic text). You can purchase a single term access code for $75.00, or a life-of-edition/multi-term access code for $110.00. Once you have made your online purchase of the Enhanced WebAssign access code through the microsite you will receive your access code along with directions on how to proceed and register into Enhanced WebAssign. If you acquire a physical book (via Amazon.com or elsewhere) BE SURE IT INCLUDES ENHANCED WEBASSIGN and is for the 7th edition. Note: if you purchase Enhanced WebAssign directly from the WebAssign website as oppose to the above linked microsite, you will get the same stand-alone Instant Access Code to Enhanced WebAssign (with eText) but at a higher price: $82.00 for single-term and $121 for multi-term.

To register on-line, you will need a "Class Key", which you should have received in the e-mail from me. If not, let me know and I will resend it to you. The first homework assignment is due on January 30.

Description

This course is part of a 3-semester calculus sequence covering standard material on differential and integral calculus at an intermediate level: more sophisticated (and much faster moving) than high school calculus, but with less emphasis on theoretical rigor than in advanced courses such as Math 523. The emphasis is on basic concepts, methods, and applications suitable for students majoring in engineering, natural sciences, computer science, and mathematics. Math 233H is not a section of the multi-section Math 233 course. It follows almost the same syllabus but has separate exams, quizzes, and homeworks. Lectures and assignments will explore concepts and ideas behind main methods on a deeper level than in the Math 233 course.

Quizzes

We will have weekly 10 minute quizzes, typically on Fridays. The first quiz will be on February 3.

Old quizzes : quiz 1, quiz 2, quiz 3, quiz 4, quiz 5, quiz 6, quiz 7, quiz 8, quiz 9.
Of course the new quizzes will be different (and not just the numbers, the problems will also be different).

Midterm exams and the final exam

There will be two midterm exams, on February 23 and April 4, from 7pm to 9pm, in LGRT 141. The final will be cumulative, with some emphasis placed on topics covered after the second midterm exam.

Calculators are allowed on exams. Here "calculator" means an actual calculator, not a calculator app on a cell phone, tablet device, computer, or other electronic device. No notes, textbooks, formula sheets, etc. are allowed on any exams. Please bring your UMass ID or driver's license to the exam.

Practice Midterm 1, Practice Midterm 2, Practice Final Exam and solutions.

Grading

A: 92-100; A-: 90-91; B+: 85-89; B: 82-84; B-: 80-81; C+: 75-79; C: 72-74; C-: 70-71; D+: 63-69; D: 60-62; F: below 60.

The numerical grade will be computed as follows: Final exam: 25%, Midterm 1: 25%, Midterm 2: 25%, Homework: 15%, Quizzes: 10%. Two worst homeworks and two worst quizzes will be dropped.

Extra help and tutoring

The Calculus Tutoring Center, located in LGRT 140, is an awesome resource for students taking calculus. The Center is staffed by professors and TAs on Monday-Thursday from 10 am to 3 pm.
