Discussion Sections are 6:00-8:00 pm Mon and 3:30-5:30 pm Thurs, both in D250
Textbooks are not required for this class. If you want to do additional reading, Stewart "Calculus" (5th ed.) and Kreyszig "Advanced Engineering Mathematics" (9th ed.) are good.

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.
