REQUIRED COURSE MATERIALS

 

Text and Online Homework Access Card

You will need the paperback or eBook version of the required text, and an access card for Enhanced

WebAssign online homework. If you took Math 21 and/or Math 22 at UVM any time between Fall 2011

and Summer 2012, this is the same text that you used, and your WebAssign access code should still be

active. If you do not already have the text and WebAssign access, choose one of the following options.

 

Option 1

Enhanced WebAssign with eBook Access Card for Multi Term Math and Science. ISBN 0-538-73807-3

This includes a homework access card and online access to the eBook.

 

Option 2

Calculus: Early Transcendentals, Hybrid Edition (with Enhanced WebAssign with eBook Access Card for

Multi Term Math and Science), 7th Edition, Stewart. ISBN 1-111-42668-6

This includes a homework access card and online access to the eBook, plus a paperback textbook.

 

Note About Used Books

If you purchase a used copy of the paperback textbook, you will need to separately purchase an access

code for Enhanced WebAssign with eBook (ISBN 0-538-73807-3) or Enhanced WebAssign without eBook

(ISBN 0-538-73811-1). This can be easily purchased online from within WebAssign after class begins.

 

Software

The Mathematica software used in the course is provided by UVM; you do not need to purchase it. You

may install Mathematica on your own computer free of charge under UVM’s site license. Mathematica

is also available for use in various computer labs and classrooms on campus.

 

 

Final grade for the class is based upon:

Quiz Average: 50%,

Mid-Term Grade:  30%, and

Final Examination: 20%.

 

FINAL EXAMINATION:  Wednesday, July 31st:  1:30 PM – 4:30 PM

 

Make-up quizzes are not given.  It is in your best interest to take every quiz, the mid-term, and the final examination.  If you miss any of these, you earn a 0% for it.

 

No make-up evaluations are given. 

 

 

Homework!

 

You are expected to actively participate in this course.  Perfect attendance may help your final average in the class. Less than perfect attendance will not help your final grade. Comprenez-vous?

Do you require special accommodations? Please let me know by noon on Friday, June 7, 2013.  I would be happy to accommodate you!
