QUIZZES

Every week there will be an in-class quiz over the material covered until the previous week.  Each quiz will be closed book, no calculators permitted and no make up's.  There will be no quiz on exam weeks or on the first week of class.

HOMEWORK

There will be HW every week. The syllabus has a list of suggested exercises (homework problems) from each section, which you must learn to solve by yourself.  The weekly quizzes and most of the exam questions will be based on these! It is not a secret that the best way to learn calculus is to DO LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS OF PROBLEMS! I will go over as many examples in class as time permits and will try to answer the questions you have, however you must work out the problems by yourself and make sure you do so everyday.

SOME TIPS FOR DOING WELL IN THIS COURSE

You will need to know everything from Math 140 especially Chapter 4 (Integration).   It is very instructive to work out the final exam from Math 140, in order to brush up your calculus skills.

The two main reasons for not doing well in a Calculus course are poor algebra skills and insufficient study time.

Don't give up easily - you don't want to retake this course.

Please feel free to come and see me to get some assistance on the homework exercises and to clear any doubts that you might have. I'd be glad to help.
