Fall 2017

**Lectures: S**ection 4 meets at 12:30 MWF, Fretwell 128;
section 2 meets at 3:30 MW in
Fretwell 124. You are welcome to attend either (or both) of these class
meetings.

Tutoring, room 315 Fretwell,
most afternoons. You should read the Information for this course first.
You're going to be assigned 12 sets of problems, a
new problem set roughly each week, and your work on these sets will
constitute about 16 to 20 percent of your grade for the course. These
sets are meant to be a preview of the class tests. The problems on the
test are different but roughly of the same level of
difficulty.
There
will be no graded homework from the text book. You need to have a
calculus book for this course so that you can get a second
look at
the ideas. Any calculus book will do, but I especially recommend the
7th, 8th and 9th editions of any of the Tan books. The other sections
of the
course use the 9th and 10th editions of the book, which is pretty
steeply priced.
You can order the 7th or 8th edition online for less than $20.
One of the best online books is Herb Gross' Calculus
in Everyday Life. It is available at no cost. The Saylor
Calculus book is also free, Click Saylor, Calculus
1. Here's a precalculus
test to help you decide if you're ready for this course. Here
are the solutions.
