schedule of readings, homework assignments and so forth

Instructor: Alan Durfee

- Office: Clapp 404B
- Telephone x2299 (with answering machine)
- email: adurfee
- Office hours: By appointment

Lectures: Tuesday, Thursday 8:00-9:15 in Clapp 401.

Fourth Hour: Friday 1:00-1:50 in Clapp 401. The fourth hour will be
used for discussing homework problems, etc. It is not required.

Text: "Calculus", vol. 2 by Ostebee and Zorn, together with the "Student
Answer Booklet". (The book we are using is the 1997 edition with the
blue-brown cover, not the preliminary edition.) The core of the course
is Chapters 7 through 11. Chapters 5 and 6 are more or less review and
will be covered rapidly. Chapters 12 and 13 will be covered as time
permits.

Homework: Homework can be handed in during class or put in the
envelope outside my office door. Graded homework can be picked up
any time from the other envelope there. Homework can be redone and
handed in again, if done promptly (ie, within a few days). The
graders reserve the right not to accept redone homework that is too
late. All homework is due at 5 PM on the date given, unless stated
otherwise.

Labs: There will be a few math "labs" which will be done in groups of
two or three. These will involve exploring a topic in depth, usually
with the assistance of a computer program. They are intended to be an
introduction to mathematics as an intellectual discipline which has
fascinated many of the world's greatest thinkers for over two thousand
years, and also an introduction to a subject with applications to many
other areas such as economics, finance, biology, physics and so forth.

Evening help sessions: Sunday through Thursday 7-10 PM (in Clapp 401 or

Calculators/Computers: We will make use of the computer programs
available on the classroom computers. No prior knowledge of these
programs is assumed. If you have a graphing calculator, you can use it
too if you wish.

Quizzes, Tests: There will be two tests, a self-scheduled final
examination and a number of quizzes. If you are unable to take a quiz
or test for any reason, you should call me right away, preferably
*before* the event. (You can call my answering machine at x2299
at any time, day or night.)

Grading: The lowest quiz score will be dropped. Each quiz is 30 points,
each test is 100 points, each lab is 50 points, the final examination is
150 points, and the homework is 100 points.
