Applied Calculus (2nd ed.) by Hughes-Hallet et al.


There will be two midterm exams, and one final. All exams are multiple-choice, and you will need a #2 pencil (to fill in the answer bubble sheet). You may use a calculator (and you will need one), but you may not share a calculator with anyone else.


The homework will be given online through OWL. It is electronically given and graded. To use OWL, go to the OWL Login Page. Assignments are linked to sections of the book. As we cover these sections in the book, the corresponding assignments will be opened on OWL, with a deadline usually about five days later. You can do the assignments after the deadline, but you will not receive credit. If you need help with using OWL, here are detailed instructions, or go to the Resource Center, where a TA can assist you.

It is solely your responsibility to keep current with the OWL assignments. They will not always be mentioned explicitly in lecture.

Additional suggested problems are given on the day-to-day schedule. These will not be collected and graded. However, they are very helpful to gauge your progress in the course, and cover material that could possibly appear on the exams. You are expected to work on these problems.


We'll have about five quizzes, which will be announced in class ahead of time. Each quiz will take place at the end of the hour on the last 15 minutes. Each quiz will worth the same as one regular OWL assignment.
There will be no make-up quizzes!!!
Your lowest quiz grade will be dropped. You can check your quizzes grades on the OWL system: after you log in, click on Course grades.


Each midterm will count for 25%, the final counts for 30%, and the OWL exercises and the quizzes together will count for 20% of your final grade. Click for additional information on the course grade.


There is lots of help available to help you get through the course. I try to answer as many questions as possible during lecture. If you have a question, don't be afraid to ask. Chances are other students also have the same question.

Outside of class, the best way to get help is through my office hours or the Help and Resource Center. No appointment is necessary. It is definitely worth your while to make use of this resource. It is not necessary to see only our UGTAs; any UGTA can help you with Math 127. You can also get assistance with OWL there. Sometimes only a little bit of consultation is all that's needed to deal with difficulties.

Although I like to get a lot of questions from students, it is not possible to answer mathematical questions by email. I've found in the past that his rarely helps anyone, and usually only causes more confusion. It's much more effective to ask me such questions during class or office hours.
