For lecture-specific information, such as instructor and TA contact information, visit the Canvas page for your lecture.

All lectures are online-only, and we will be using the following online tools to help with the success of the course.

Textbook Information

The required textbook for the course is Calculus: Concepts and Contexts (4th Edition), by Stewart; published by Cengage Learning. We will study parts of Chapters 4-8 of the textbook in this course. A list of the topics scheduled to be covered can be found on the course calendar.

You can buy a physical copy of the textbook in the UCSD Bookstore or you can buy ELECTRONIC ONLY access directly from WebAssign (after logging into WebAssign via Canvas). Electronic access only will provide the book and the online homework. Please be aware that a used copy will likely not have a viable access code and will probably require a separate purchase.

Exam Information

In this course, there will be three midterm exams and a final exam. The midterm exams will be held synchronously. That means that you have to take them at the scheduled time. The dates of the midterm exams, as listed in the Schedule of Classes and the course calendar, together with the topics of each midterm exam are:

You will be given exactly 65 minutes to write your exam and upload it to Gradescope (50 minutes for the exam and 15 minutes for the upload) and will be provided a three-hour window within which to do so. (See your instructor's Canvas site for details.) Your cumulative exam score will be based on the best 2 of the 3 exam scores. There will be no makeup exams nor will exams be offered at alternate times. If you miss an exam for any reason, your cumulative exam score will be based on your remaining 2 exam scores.

The Final Exam will be offered through Canvas Quizzes. The date of the exam, as listed in the Schedule of Classes and the course calendar is

The final exam is asynchronous and you may take the exam at any time on Saturday, March 13 between 12:01 AM and 11:59 PM (even though the official time is 8:00a-10:59a). The final exam is cumulative and may include any topic from the course.

Sample Exams

The following are examples of what exams looked like in a past version of this course. They are NOT practice exams. They may differ in form and content from the exams given this term. These sample exams are based on exams given in an actual course a few quarters ago (Winter 2019).

In particular, these exams were given in-person (as opposed to remote) and there were two midterms and a final exam. We will be doing things differently. We will have three one-hour remote midterm exams and our final exam will be via Canvas quizzes.
