Here is a practice exam to help you for the final exam, and here is the key. The final exam covers material from the whole course (lecture material, homeworks, and chapters 6-10 of the textbook). In addition to the appendix at the end of the exam, you will also have this sheet. No other notes/books/calculators/etc will be allowed.
Homework 11 (last one of the semester!) is posted on WeBWorK. It is due 12/05 at 11:58.
Exam 2 scores and webwork scores are posted at webct.utah.edu. Please check to make sure your scores got imported correctly from WeBWorK.
Homework 6 is posted on WeBWorK. It is due 10/17 at 11:58.

Here are the solutions to the first practice exam. The solution for problem 1 part c got cut off a bit - but you should be able to tell where I was going. Problem 4 part a is probably longer (though not necessarily more difficult) than anything you will see on the exam. If you have any questions about the solutions you can see me during office hours. For the rest of this week (9/19-9/23), I have office hours Wed 4-5, Thurs 5-6 and Friday 3-4, or you can make an appointment with me.
Here is a practice exam to help you for the first midterm. The first exam is focused on lecture material since the beginning of the year and chapters 6 and 7 of the text. This means you should be familiar with the following topics: natural log and exponent functions - including how to integrate and differentiate; inverse functions; inverse trig functions - including how to integrate and differentiate; hyperbolic functions - including how to integrate and differentiate; how to integrate using substitution, integration by parts, and partial fractions; and how to set up and solve first order linear differential equations. (This may not be an exhaustive list.) My advice is to take the practice exam under exam conditions (i.e. no calculator, book, notes for 100 uninterupted minutes) to see where you are and what you need to focus on. I will post solutions soon.
I will be out of town September 26-27. These are the day of and the day before the first midterm exam. Plan accordingly!! I will be having make up office hours this week Wednesday 4-5 and Friday 3-4 or you can always make an appointment if the times do not work for you.
Homework 5 is posted on WeBWorK. It is due 9/26 at 11:58.
Homework 4 is posted on WeBWorK. It is due 9/19 at 11:58.
There is an error on homework 3 problem 12. Please find the integral of tanh(x), not what webwork says tanh(x) equals.
Grades should be viewable on webct.utah.edu. Please check to make sure your scores got imported correctly from WeBWorK.
Homework 3 is posted on WeBWorK. It is due 9/12 at 11:58.
Homework 2 is posted on WeBWorK. It is due 9/05 at 11:58.
NOTE: There will be NO CLASS on September 1 due to the football game.Office hours for Thursday are also canceled. There will be makeup office hours Friday 3-4.
An additional problem for Homwork 1 is posted here. It is due 9/06 at the beginning of class.
Homework 1 is posted on WeBWorK. It is due 9/05 at 11:58. The extra time is to allow students to get used to WeBWorK and accomodate students who register later for the class. Homework 2 will also be due on 9/05.
Homework 0 is posted on WeBWorK. It is due 9/05 at 11:58. This is just ten problems to introduce students to WeBWorK.
Here is a help page for WeBWorK. Note in particular for our class you may have to use log instead of ln for the natural logarithm function.
We will cover most of chapters 6-10 in the text and maybe some of chapter 15.
A tentative lecture schedule can be found here. This is subject to change.
Prerequisites: "C" or better in MATH 1210 OR MATH 1250 OR MATH 1270 OR AP Calculus AB score of at least 4 OR AP Calculus BC score of at least 3.
Grades will be posted online at webct.utah.edu and will be based on performance on homeworks, 2 midterm exams, and one final exam.
The weighting for each is as follows:
There will be two midterm exams and one final exam for this class. All exam scores will be counted (I will not drop a lowest score). The final exam is comprehensive and covers the entire course. Make-up exams will only be given for university excused absences and must be arranged in advance. The exam dates are given below. Plan accordingly. You will be required to show your student ID during the test.

We will be using the online WeBWorK system to do most homeworks. WeBWorK has the advantage of immediate feedback, i.e. you don't have to wait until after you get a graded assignment back to realize your work was incorrect. This is my firt time using the system, so there may be some speedbumps - but it seems everyone I know who uses the system generally has a positive experience. We may also have some written assignments that cover issues WeBWorK can't handle.
Collaboration on homeworks is encouraged but what you turn in must be your own work.
The due date for WeBWorK assignments will be on Mondays at 11:58 PM(Monday was picked by the department -not me). No late homework will be accepted.
Attendance is not required, however you are responsible for any class meetings missed. This does not mean I will rehash missed lectures during office hours. During lectures I expect cell phones and laptops to be off and put away. Please try to be on time and unless given prior approval, I expect you to stay through to the
end of class. Chronically leaving class early or arriving late may result in points lost on homework assignments.
I encourage students to see me during office hours. It is better to see me before you get behind in the class as college semesters can pass very quickly. If you can't make the scheduled hours, you can always make an appointment.
The math department offers free drop-in tutoring for math department classes at the 1000 and 2000 level, as well as the following 3000 level classes: 3070-3080, 3150, 3160. The tutoring center is located in room 155 of the T. Benny Rushing Mathematics Center (adjacent to the LCB and JWB).
Students with Disabilities
The American with Disabilities Act requires that reasonable accommodations
be provided for students with physical, sensory, cognitive, systemic, learning, and psychiatric disabilities. Any student with a certified disability who needs to arrange reasonable accommodations must contact University Disability Services (UDS) and me at the beginning of the semester to discuss any such accommodations for the course.
