## Textbook:

*Calculus: Early Vectors *preliminary
edition, by James Stewart.
## Course Topics:

- Chapter 1: Introduction to Vectors and
Vector Functions
- Chapter 2: Limits and Rates of Change
- Chapter 3: Derivatives
- Chapter 4: Inverse Functions: Exponential,
Logarithmic, and Inverse Trigonometric Functions
- Chapter 5: Applications of Differentiation

## Help room:

The Mathematics Department runs a help room
that is free to all students. The Help Room is in 196 Carver.
It begins operation on September 4. Its hours are Monday through
Friday 9 am to 4 pm.
## Calculators

Students are required to have a calculator
for this class. Calculators should be capable of graphing functions
and zooming in on the graphs. The department recommends the TI-85
calculator. Some students will prefer the more elaborate and more
expensive TI-92. Bring the calculators to class and to exams.
You should also know how to use your calculator to perform the following
tasks:
- plot two functions on the same graph
- evaluate a function at a number (for
example, if you call the function f and you evaluate
f(1)=3.24551, you should be able to evaluate f(3.24551) without
typing the number 3.24551)
- find where a function is zero graphically
- find where two functions have the same
value

## Course Grading

Course grades will be based on homework (20%)
and four exams (80%). Grade cutoffs will be approximately 90%
for A, 80% for B, 70% for C, and 55% for D with the exact cutoffs
determined by class performance on exams. Plus/minus guidelines will
be at the discretion of the instructor (in which case, expect 90%
to be the cut-off for A-, not for A).

## Schedule for exams

- Friday, May 30 in Beyer 101 during class.
A practice exam
will be available on the web.
- Friday, June 13 in Beyer 101 during
class. A practice
exam will be available on the web.
- Friday, June 27 in Beyer 101 during

contact the instructor by phone on the day of the exam to
arrange a timely make-up exam.
