Calculus III (2210), fall 2008
-The Final will take place on Wednesday December 17 from 8 to 10 am for section 1 (the 9:40-10:30 class), and Friday December 19 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm for section 2 (the 10:45-11:35 class), both in LCB 219.You may not use books, notes, or calculators during the exam.
-The Final covers all sections from which homework was assigned: all of chapters 11, 12 and 13 (except 11.8, 13.5 and 13.9), and sections 14.1-14.3.
-I will have office hours on Monday 12/15 from 2 to 5 pm in JWB 209.
-You can prepare for the Final by reviewing the homework, quizzes, Midterms, and for chapters 13 and 14 do the following Review problems. Once you have done these (and only then), you can look at the solutions.
Final Grade: As announced in class, your final grade will be the best of the following 2 grades: (1) the weighted average of your homework average (10%, drop 2 lowest), your quiz average (10%, drop lowest), Midterm Exams (20% each) and Final Exam (40%); (2) your grade on the Final Exam. In concrete terms, this means that you can still do (very) well even if you didn't do so well on the Midterms.

For instance, you will not be tested on Kepler's laws, binormal vectors or Quadric Surfaces (you don't need to know their classification on p. 605-606).

Lectures: Monday, Wednesday, Friday 9:40-10:30 (section 1) or 10:45-11:35 (section 2) in LCB 219.
Textbook: Calculus with Differential Equations, 9th ed. by D. Varberg, E.J. Purcell and S.E. Rigdon.
Material: The material we will cover in this course roughly corresponds to chapters 11-14 of the textbook.
Assignments will be given on-line each week, usually by Wednesday. The homework problems need to be done in order to develop command of the material; this will prepare you for the quizzes and exams. In writing up any problem, you must show all the steps leading to your solution.
A few indicated problems are to be submitted at the beginning of the lecture the following Wednesday. Selected problems will be graded and returned in class the following Friday. No late homework will be accepted.
There will be short quizzes every other week, at the beginning of the Friday period, starting September 5, except before and after exams. The quizzes should be easy and are only here to encourage you to review the material regularly. You may not use books, notes, or calculators during quizzes.
There will be no making up of missed quizzes. (You may however be excused for a valid reason, in which case you should notify me before the quiz).
There will be two Midterms and a Final.You may not use books, notes, or calculators during exams. Following the department's policy, there will be no making up of missed exams. If you miss a Midterm exam for a valid reason, the grade for that exam will be replaced by a neutral grade (a weighted average of the other exam grades).
Students with documented disabilities or other special needs that require special accomodation must register with the Center for Disability Services (Union 162, 581-5020). After that, contact the instructor at least a week before each exam; we will need to have received confirmation from the Center for Disability Services.
The Midterms will take place during the lecture period on Wednesday October 1 and Wednesday November 12 in LCB 219.
The Final will take place on Wednesday December 17 from 8 to 10 am for section 1, and Friday December 19 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm for section 2, both in LCB 219.
Grading: Homework: 10%. Quizzes: 10%. Midterms: 20% each. Final: 40%. The two lowest homework grades will be dropped, as well as the lowest quiz grade.
Office hours: Wednesdays 1:15-3:15 pm in my office, JWB 209. If you can't make it, write me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 801-581-6846 to schedule an appointment.
In addition, you can get help from a Tutor at the Math center, located on the first floor between the two Math buildings (JWB and LCB). The hours are Monday-Thursday 8am-8pm and Friday 8am-6pm (starting September 2).
