Usual Office Hours: 11:00 - 12:00 MWF, 2:30 - 3:20 Tuesdays, and 3:30 - 4:30 MW or by appointment (or any time I am in). Exceptions posted on door and announced in advance whenever possible.

The first hour test was on Wednesday, September 29. It covered 12.1 - 12.5, 13.2 - 13.4 and 14.2, 14.3, 14.6.

The second hour test was on Wednesday, October 27. It covered 14.4, 14.5, tangent planes from 14.6, and 14.7, 15.2, 15.3

The third hour test was on Monday, November 22. It covered 15.4, 15.6, 15.7, 15.8, and 16.2

The textbook for this course is *Calculus: Early Transcendentals *
by James Stewart, 6th edition.

The course covers the following sections of the textbook:

- 12.1 through 12.6
- 13.1 through 13.4
- 14.1 through 14.7
- 15.1 through 15.8, except 15.5
- 16.1 through 16.4

The most emphasis will be on Chapters 14 and 15. Incidentally, the material in 13.3 is covered more thoroughly in Math 550 and/or Math 551, while the Chapter 16 material is covered very thoroughly in Math 550.

Only simple calculators (in other words, those that may be used in
taking SAT tests) are needed for this course, and they will
be needed only a small fraction of the time, outside of class.
Neither the quizzes, nor the hour tests, nor the
final exam will require their use, although they may save some
time on a few problems. ** Programmable calculators are not
permitted for quizzes, hour tests, or the final exam. **
