SEAT ASSIGNMENT (Find
room and seat for final exam)

TEXTBOOK: Calculus, Early Transcendentals, 5th edition,
by James Stewart
HOMEWORK: I expect that you carefully review on the textbook
what has been explained during the lectures. I strongly recommend that
you read material in advance in order to ask clarifying questions at the
right time. Homework problems will be assigned to you at the end of each
lecture. Evennumbered problems should be handed in for grading on the
following Monday. Your homework is THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR LEARNING
PROCESS. The purpose of the homework problems is to allow you to verify
your understanding, and work out some representative examples of what you
will be asked to solve in class. Therefore, it is extremely important that
you carefully work out the homework problems if you want to do well in
the class. Please, notice that MANY OF THE EXAMS AND QUIZ PROBLEMS WILL
BE either PICKED UP DIRECTLY FROM THE HOMEWORK PROBLEMS, or very similar
to them.

EXAMINATIONS: There will be between 4 and 8 Thursday quizzes (about
15 min each) after completion of certain parts of the course. Questions
will come directly from the homework problems. There will be THREE midterm
exams on: Thursday, SEPTEMBER 18; Thursday, OCTOBER 16; Thursday, NOVEMBER
13. Exams will last for 2 hours, between 6:30 and 8:30 pm. The FINAL EXAM
is on Friday, DECEMBER 19 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm (THEY WILL NOT BE IN
THE REGULAR CLASSROOM!)
GRADING: You will be allowed to drop the worst 2 homework scores
(based on the persantage you got right). The homework average will count
25% towards the final grade. The quizzes will count 20% towards the final
grade. Each midterm exam will count 10% and the final exam will count 25%
towards the final grade. The final grade will be assigned according to
the following scheme:
A: 89100, B: 7588, C: 6374, D: 5162, F: 050.
For those taking the course Pass/Fail, Pass will be equivalent to a
grade D or better. It's possible that, at the end of the semester, the
instructor may decide that it's appropriate to use a slightly more lenient
scale or to make other changes benefiting students. It's certain that your
grade will not be lower than that predicted by the above table.

MAKEUP EXAMS: No makeups exams will be given. Excused absences
from any of these tests must be obtained from myself prior to the examination.
Unexcused absence from an exam will result in a score of zero on that exam.


OFFICE HOURS: My office is in Cupples I, room 112 A. Office hours
are Monday and Friday 11:3012:30. You can certainly talk to me at other
times. If you want to reach me or schedule an appointment, please, talk
to me at the end of the class or contact me by email at: krishtal@math.wustl.edu.
If I'm unavailable for some reason, you contact your grader
at lytan@artsci.wustl.edu.
He will try to provide you with all you need.
