Material covered

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 and will be based on performance on homeworks, 2 midterm exams, and one final exam. The weighting for each is as follows:
Midterm Exams40%
Final Exam30%


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.
Midterm 1 Tuesday, September 27
Midterm 2 Tuesday, November 15
Final Exam Tuesday, December 13, 6:00-8:00


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.

Classroom Policy

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.

Office Hours

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.

Tutoring Center

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.
