Quick start guide

Modules

The course content is split into modules corresponding to sections of Calculus by Stewart, Edition 7 (buying this text is optional but useful for extra problem sets etc.), also the course text. Each module has corresponding lectures notes, video set, and video notes. All of which are available at the course resources website at the common class site. In addition, there is a webwork problem set for each module, and there will be a quiz each week over the material from the modules taught in the previous week.

I recommend you print up all the video lecure notes at the beginning of class so you will be prepared to come to class with the proper completed notes each day.

Class meetings

You are required to watch the course videos prior to class meetings. The videos define terms and introduce concepts and methods. During class we will apply and discuss the material from the videos, so it is important that you watch and absorb these videos before class. You are expected fill out the video lecture notes which acompany the video lectures.

Note that you are responsible for printing up your own video lecture notes and bringing them to every class session. One `quiz point' is granted for each completed set of notes on the proper class day.

Homework

Homeworks will be administered through Webwork. The due date for a webwork is generally the day before the second class meeting after the homework material is covered in class. The final due date (for 75% credit) is generally the day of the second class meeting after the material is covered in class.

EG: Section 1.8 is covered in class on Monday 9/11 (you should watch the corresponding video before class). The first due date is Thursday 9/14 at 11pm for full credit. The final due date is Friday at 11pm for 75% credit.

Quizzes

Each week on Friday we will have a quiz covering the material from the previous week. E.G., on Friday 9/16 we will have a quiz covering material from the previous week, which should be sections 1.6 and 1.7.

There are 10 designated `quiz points' each week. 7 of these quiz points evaluate performance on the quiz. 1 quiz point is granted each day for completing the proper course video notes before class.

Grades

The final grade is evaluated by the following weights:
Webwork: 10%
Quizzes: 20%
Exam 1: 20%
Exam 2: 20%
Final: 30%
