Hello everyone! Welcome to Calculus, where the Math starts! I teach Calculus for over 30 years and I love it. Let's have fun!

Course Description

What to Expect in this Course

This is a short term class, so please use the time efficiently. During each class we will have a short lecture on the topic, then work on problems. I always try to make sure we cover all the types of problems during the class. You are expected to complete the associated daily homework. We will have 4 On Campus midterms on June 20, June 29, July 13, July 27 and On Campus final exam on August 3. HW assignment sets will be collected on the scheduled exam days. Late submissions of any work will not be accepted unless there is a valid reason. Questions on exams are very similar to the HW questions and by doing the HW you also study for the exam. Students will need to have access to Zoom through your student canvas account.

Types of Assessments

Assessments will include daily section homework assignments, 4 midterms, and a cumulative final exam on the last day of the course. 

Textbook Information

We will be using Calculus by James Stewart (8th ed.) ISBN: 9781285740621. You can buy either physical textbook or WebAssign access code, which includes eBook access.
