Your grade will consist of:


Homework will be assigned and collected via Webassign

Homework is due Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11:00pm

No late homework will be accepted under any reason

How to Use Webassign

In order to access and submit your homework for grading, you will use Webassign. You will need a "Webassign access code" which you can purchase with or without the text at the University Bookstore or at

Here is a description of how to get registered on Webassign and begin accessing the homework.

Also, see this link: How to Use WebAssign


The midterms will be 50 minutes long and will be given at your usual quiz section classroom. The Final Exam is cumulative and will be held on Friday, August 20th (the time and location will be announced later in the course). We NEVER give exams earlier than the scheduled exam dates.

There will be no quizzes and worksheets.

    • Taylor series (sections 4-5)

Math Study Center

The Math Study Center (located in Communication B-014) is a great place for students to work on math, WHETHER OR NOT THEY NEED HELP. We are not a tutoring center in the traditional sense. We provide a comfortable place and a supportive atmosphere for students to come together and study, in groups or individually.

We have on staff a number of tutors (both graduate student TA's and advanced undergraduates) who will sit down with students and answer questions to help them get unstuck. We do not provide long blocks of uninterrupted one-on-one tutoring. Textbooks, calculators and other study materials are available to be checked out for in-room use.

We are located in the basement of the Communications Building, room B-014. Summer Hours: Monday - Thursday: 10:50am - 5:40pm.
