— cannot store material (like pages of formulas)
— not a graphing calculator

WRITTEN HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS:
Here is the PDF file of the written HW (not to be confused with WebAssign):
ONLINE HW and WEBASSIGN INFO IS HERE
Please read CU policies HERE.
Textbook:
James Stewart:
Calculus, Concepts and Contexts,
Fourth Edition, Brooks/Cole, 2010.
You also need a Webassign account, which you can purchase either together with the book, or HERE.
You can buy directly from the publisher at this website
http://services.cengagebrain.com/course/site.html?id=1198556
You can also buy the hard copy plus ebook plus multi-term access to on-line homework from the bookstore.
You can buy the textbook from other vendors, but make sure it includes access to on-line homework (EWA).
Grading:
Your course grade will be computed as follows:
◦ written homework for recitation 10%
◦ Participation and conduct in recitation 5%
◦ web-based homework 15%
◦ 3 midterm exams 3X15= 45%
◦ 1 final exam 25%
The “participation and conduct”grade is coming from your attendance, class participation and conduct, and is given by the TA. This grade is determined by the TA and the instructor, and they'll all just say what they'll do in class on the first day.

Texting policy:
NO TEXTING
Calculators:
A calculator (TI-83, equivalent or better) is useful for this course.
Work Load:
You will need to do a lot of reading on your own. There is no time to cover absolutely all the course material in class, but only the fundamental points that you need to understand in order to read the rest on your own. In addition to the “written homework assignments” and the “web-based homework”, it is your responsibility to make sure that you can solve all the exercises at the end of each section covered in this course. Use office hours and lab hours as much as you need to make sure of that. The exercises will be neither collected nor graded but you will be expected to know how to work them out by the next day of class if you want to be able to understand the lectures and follow the course normally.
Email Policy:
I (J.E.) will not answer questions about homework problems via email. Sorry! Should you have any such questions, please come to office hours or go to the Help Lab (UMRC). The other instructors might have a different policy though.
If you happen to have any problem with WeBAssign, then please contact Jeff at math-help@colorado.edu
Homework:
Late homework will not be accepted.
But the lowest two scores will be dropped.
In the WebAssign HW, 10% of the problems will be dropped.
Midterm Exams:
The lowest MT grade will be replaced with the final exam’s grade if you choose so, provided the final is not canceled (say, because of snow).
Two missed MT means the course cannot be completed successfully. Whether it results in a drop, fail, or incomplete, depends on the personal circumstances.
We will have a review/practice in class on the day of the MT for each MT.
Final Exam:
December 15.
Exam policy:
The exams for this course are coordinated exams. Their times and dates are written in stone and
there are no make-up exams! Therefore make sure early on that you have no conflicts with work
schedules, other classes, other tests, travel plans, etc.
If you cannot make it because of emergencies or religious obligations, please talk to me.
The rooms for the exams will be announced in due time. Bring your CU student-ID to all your exams. You may be required to show it. The use of cellular phones, or any type of headset during tests is strictly forbidden.
UMRC (“Help lab”):
The Undergraduate Mathematics Resource Center is located in MATH 175. The Center will serve all students taking undergraduate Mathematics courses. For the hours please CLICK.
