30% Homework
20% First Midterm (September 26 )
20% Second Midterm (November 14)
30% Final Exam

Tentative schedule Click here

The homework assignment will be available a week before its due date above on this website. Homework is due by the beginning of class on Friday (note: there is no homework the week of Thanksgiving). Please staple or otherwise fasten your homework together before you get to class!

There will be thirteen assignments in all, and each assignment will have twelve problems. Each problem will be graded 0 (little or no work), 0.5 (significant amount of work, but substantially incorrect or incomplete), or 1 (essentially complete and correct). For a problem to be complete, you need to show all important steps in your work. In fact, all assessment will be based on your ability to communicate a correct solution and explain your reasoning. It is absolutely essential to write clearly; it is your responsibility to write in a way that tells the graders that you understand the problem and its solution. To this end, they reserve the right to take off points for poor presentation. It is also to your benefit to write legibly and to clearly indicate your final answer.

The sum of your scores on the problems will be your grade for the homework assignment, and the sum of your top twelve homework grades will be your homework score for the course (i.e., your lowest homework grade will be dropped).

Homework is the most important part of any calculus class. They are your primary source of study material for the exams. The best way to study for a calculus exam is to complete your homework as it is assigned and then practice similar problems before the exam. Give your homework the time and effort that it deserve

The midterms for this section will be in class. The first midterm is on September 26 and will cover Chapter 7. The second midterm is on November 14 and will cover Chapter 10. Both exams are closed book. See the honor code statement for more details.

Announcements for the first midterm exam: Dan Cole has provided a list of integrals and trigonometric identities that you are supposed to know. You may find a look at his practice exams useful.

Announcements for the second midterm exam:

Final Exam:
The final exam will be a three-hour, cumulative, scheduled exam. Its location and time will be listed here

It is the policy of the mathematics department that no final may be given early to accommodate student travel plans. We will not know when the final in this course will be scheduled for some time. Therefore, if you should make plans to travel before the end of final exam period, and it turns out that the final for this course is after your scheduled departure date, you will have to choose between keeping your plans and receiving a zero for the final, or incurring the costs for changing your plans and taking the final at its scheduled time. Thanks for your understanding.

Announcements for the final exam:
The final exam will take place Thursday, December 13 in AMP, Herzstein hall, from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
There will 15 questions viz 5 questions to each of Chapters 7, 10, and 9.
To prepare for the questions to Chapter 7 and 10 you may want to have a look at Dan Cole's earlier practice exams. There you can also find practice exam questions for chapter 9.

Also, you may want to have another look at Dan Cole's list of integrals and trigonometric identities that you are supposed to know.

Honor Code: You are expected to abide by the Rice Honor Code. Please visit http://honor.rice.edu/ and read the Student Handbook.

Homework: You are allowed and are encouraged to give and receive aid while solving homework problems, but all write-ups must be done independently and in your own words.

Exams: The midterms and final in this class will be closed-book. No aid may be given or received during the exam. Calculators will not be necessary and will not be allowed unless otherwise stated by the instructor.

Disabilities Statement:
Any student with a documented disability needing academic adjustments or accommodations should speak to me as soon as possible, preferably during the first two weeks of class. I will be happy to help you, and all communications will remain confidential. As a reminder, you will also need to contact Disability Support Services in the Ley Student Center (www.dss.rice.edu). If you believe that you have an undocumented disability, you are encouraged to talk to me and Disability Support Services so that you can get help.

Other Accommodations:
If you have any difficulties in meeting deadlines or in taking the midterms at the scheduled times, in particular in the case of illness, death in the family, or extracurricular activities which require you to be away from campus, you are encouraged to speak to me, and I will do my best to accommodate your needs. In the case of conflicts which can be anticipated in advance, it is requested that you notify me a week before the due date of the assignment or the date of the exam.
