Math 10 Section 1
Fall 2003

General Course Information

You can find everything you want to know at the official course webpage.

Course Coordinator: Prof. Nicos Kapouleas Course Content: Math 10 is the second part of an introduction to differential and integral calculus. 

Textbook: Calculus, Early Transcendentals Single Variable, by James Stewart, 5e.

Attendance: Attendance is required for all lectures and recitation hours. Should you miss a lecture or a recitation, even if you have a good reason for doing so, like an emergency or religious observance, you are still responsible for knowing the content of the lecture, including organizational matters such as changes in homework assignments or exam dates.

Homework: Written homework assignments will be given out each week on Fridays in class (it will also be posted on the official course webpage) and will be due on the following Thursday in section, at the BEGINNING of the section.  In addition to written assignments, reading assignments will be given throughout the course.  Reading the textbook is an integral part of learning the course material.
Quizzes: There will be a quiz each week during recitation section.

Exams: There will be two midterms and a final exam.  The midterms are tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, October 8, 7:30 - 8:30 PM, and Monday, November 17, 7:30 - 8:30 PM.  The final exam will be given on Wednesday, December 17, 2:00 - 5:00 PM.  You must take the exams at the time they are given, so plan your travel arrangements around these dates.  There are no excuses other than incapacitating illness or family emergency for missing an exam. In such cases you should contact the course coordinator to arrange an ORAL make-up exam.

Academic Honesty: Brown University's policies regarding academic honesty apply to this course. For more information see

Calculator policy: The use of a calculator will not be permitted on exams or quizzes.  While the use of a calculator is not required in this course, students are permitted to use a calculator or computer algebra system when studying and completing homework assignments. However, a calculator will never be necessary, and it is to your advantage not to use one, since that will better prepare you for the exams. Also, you should learn to rely on your brain instead of a feeble impersonation of one!

Additional Resources: The Math Resource Center is open on weekday evenings (Mon-Thurs, 8:00-10:00 PM in Kassar 105) for help with problems you have with the material in this course. Also, included with your textbook are two instructional CD's that you might find helpful in learning the course material. More suggestions are available in an online note.
