01/02/2014     WeBWorK (the online homework system) will be functional next week. Do not worry if you cannot log into it just yet. I will let you know when it becomes active.

01/01/2014     You need to buy the iClicker2 and register it in TED in order to make sure you get the clicker credit. Anything else (iclicker, smartphone app, register through the iclicker website, etc) won't work. Some of you might have done something different with iclickers (e.g. register them through iclicker's website) in a previous class, but that won't work in this class. You are required to have the clicker remote with you in class every day starting Wednesday January 8. You must make sure that the clicker remote is registered on TED and you are getting the credit for your answers by January 31. The class rosters won't be updated after that date.

01/01/2014     The required textbook is Calculus: Early Transcendentals, second edition, by Jon Rogawski, published by W.H. Freeman and Company, 2012.
If you do not already have the above textbook, the multivariable portion ( Multivariable Calculus: Early Transcendentals, second edition, by Jon Rogawski, published by W.H. Freeman and Company, 2012) suffices.
We will cover parts of chapters 11-15, which are contained in both books. If you happen to have the right edition for one of them, keep that. If not, the Multivariable Calculus is lighter and cheaper. And quite sufficient.
