Homework assignments

Homeworks will count for 10% each of your grade and will be done on the textbook website. Homeworks cannot be turned in late.

WebAssign homeworks can be found at http://www.webassign.net/login.html

Homework #1 Due Monday, January 23, start of class.

Please send me an e-mail from an account you use frequently. Put "Math 175" in the subject area. You may leave the message area blank, if you wish. calhoun@math.boisestate.edu

WebAssign is now up and running! Please read instructions on how to login here.

I generally list problems from the book as well that correspond to the WebAssign problems. For extra practice, I suggest you try these problems as well. They sometimes give different hints, or vary the problems slightly, which maybe beneficial.

In-class exercises

In-class exercises are work we will do in class, usually from a worksheet I will hand out. I will usually collect these, and record that you did them. Although I don't assign a numeric grade to in-class exercises, participation in these exercises can improve your final grade.

I will post the exercises and solutions after they have been collected. You can only get the exercises by being in class the day they are handed out. They will usually be due the following class day.

Here are a few more notes on the final :

  • You should be prepared to answer questions on two of the following topics ((1) work/energy, (2) fluid pressure and force, (3) center of mass, (4) Average function values )
  • You will notice that the only section in Chapter 9 is Section 9.1. This means that you are responsible for solving "seperable" ordinary differential equations. You will not be responsible for material from the remaining sections this chapter 9.

My office hours (posted 1/17/2012)

My office hours for this semester will be Tuesday 2:30-3:30, or by special appointment.


Course textbook (posted 1/17/2012)

Our course text books is "Calculus Early Transcendentals", second edition, by Jon Rogawski. This textbook is being used on a trial basis, and so you will be loaned a copy of the textbook to use for the semester at no cost. You will have to return your copy at the end of the semester. Other calculus courses are using the free online text by Whitman. This text is also available for you to use as a supplement to the Rogawski text.

You may also be interested in the online version of our text. When you purchase access to the WebAssign on-line homework system, you will also have the option of paying for access to the eBook version of the textbook.
