Among other things, the course website contains:
- Schedule of material to be covered in each class period;
- Homework assignment lists;
- Online copies of handouts;
- Pertinent departmental links.
||Precalculus, Stewart/Redlin/Watson (solution manual
available). We shall cover the entire book, except for Chapters 8 and 9,
which may not be included in your book, depending on the version you have.|
||None required. Graphing calculators (any) will be permitted for in-class
work and homework, but no calculator may be used for quizzes or exams. |
||There will be occasional homework, consisting of either problems from the
textbook, or handouts. On days when no homework is assigned, your unspoken
assignment (which is just as important) is to practice the material from the
day's lecture on your own. I shall maintain a list of recommended problems from
each lecture to help you on days when homework is not due for collection.|
These will generally be given during
the last twenty minutes of class, every
Tuesday and Thursday. I reserve the right to
give an additional in-class or take-home quiz at any point.
Because the summer schedule is so dense, please note that quizzes will
often be given on material from the day before.
||There will be three in-class exams, including a
final exam on the last day of class.|
||Absence from class is not penalized;
however, no makeup quizzes will be given
(see below). Exams from which you have a
documented excused absence may be made up in a
(Unexcused) late homework and/or take-home quizzes will be
penalized by 25% per day late. Bonus questions may occasionally be given,
whose allocation will be announced by me at the time of the assignment.
Points for the class grade are assigned as follows: each exam is
worth 100 points, and most quizzes will be worth 25 points, hence, one
is worth about four quiz grades. Graded homework assignments will have a
point value between
5 and 25 points, depending on the magnitude of the work required. Your final grade will be
calculated as your earned percentage of the total possible points.

Course text: Please be sure you have the 5th edition of Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus, by
Stewart, Redlin, and Watson. The cover looks like this:
It is available at the campus bookstore, the Maryland Book Exchange,
and at Bookholders.com. If you

the book without Chapters 8 and 9, and labeled Math 115 on the
