Math 10 Section 1
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
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.
1. Write your name clearly at the top of EVERY page.
2. Put the problems in order, indicating clearly any you have skipped.
3. STAPLE your homework. Paper-clips, folded clips, etc. are not acceptable.
4. Turn in assignments on time. No late homework will be accepted.
5. Write clearly. If your homework is too messy, the grader may choose not to grade it.
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
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.
