**Calculus Tutoring Lab:
** A tutoring lab for Calculus students will be open 10 to 12 hours daily Monday

**We strongly recommend that you make use of the
Calculus Tutoring Lab.**

**Calculators:** A graphing calculator (preferably
a TI-83) is recommended. Help with using TI graphing calculators will be available in the
Calculus Tutoring Lab.
* Note:* You may use any calculator you wish during exams and quizzes; however, you will
be expected to show all work leading to a solution. No credit will be given for unsupported answers
obtained directly from your calculator.

**Homework:** Homework will be assigned on the course
homework page and should be completed by the discussion section on the
indicated due date. Homework will not be collected; your homework will be evaluated
by your performance on periodic quizzes. You should make every effort to complete the
homework assignments and seek help with problems you have not been able to solve. You
can get help with the homework assignments in the
Calculus Tutoring Lab (APM B402A).
A Student Solutions Manual (available in the Bookstore) has complete solutions for
all of the odd-numbered problems in the text.

**Lecture:** Attending lectures is a fundamental part of the course; you are
responsible for material presented in the lecture *whether or not it is discussed in the
textbook.* You should expect questions on the exams that will test your understanding of
concepts discussed in the lecture. The lectures are on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11 am until
11:50 pm, in Solis Hall 107.

**Reading:** Reading the sections of the textbook corresponding to the assigned
homework exercises is considered part of the homework assignment; you are responsible for material
in the assigned reading *whether or not it is discussed in the lecture.*

**Quizzes:** There will be four (4) quizzes given during lectures.
See the course calendar for the dates of the quizzes. Each quiz
will consist of two problems taken directly from the assigned homework and you will be allowed
fifteen (15) minutes to complete each quiz. Your cumulative quiz grade will be based on the
best three (3) of the four (4) quizzes. No notes or books will be allowed during the
quizzes. **There will be no makeup quizzes.**

**Midterm Exams:** There will be two (2) midterm exams given
in the lecture period on Friday of the fourth and eighth weeks of the term. See the
