This course assumes a knowledge of basic calculus and trigonometry. If you can't do the problems listed here *easily* then you are unlikely to pass the class.

For ** online practice** of calculus problems, here are three good sites to look at: Calculus on the Web (Books I and II); some worked problems from UC Davis; and some worked problems from Lamar University. Another useful resource is www.calculus.org.
You can download problem sets and lecture handouts below.

Problem sets are due to FN's mailbox by **6pm each Tuesday**. Late homework will be penalized
at 10% per day (see here for more details). In calculating your final grade I will discard the *lowest* problem set grade.

I grade on a curve. The balance of homework and test scores will be roughly 30/70. For exams
the pass mark is roughly 50%. You *must* pass the Final to pass the class.

GEOPATHS is a new program that provides extra problem-solving sessions for students taking this class. Please sign up.

If you qualify for classroom accommodations because of a disability, please get an Accommodation Authorization from the Disability Resource Center (DRC) and submit it to me in person outside of class (e.g. office hour) within the first two weeks of the quarter. Contact DRC at (831) 459-2089.
