Last day of class Friday 16 Dec 9-13 **Final Exam Fri Dec 13, 10:30-12:30PM** **Text 0 (Lecture Notes):**Calculus 2 Lecture Workbook-
You will probably want a physical copy of this to work through as it contains the
problems that we will work through in lecture.
Solutions/answers will be posted in the schedule above as we work through the book.

**Feedback from students:**Most, but not all previous students generally reported this text as being useful. This is not a required textbook, but we believe it can be helpful for you learning calculus. **Text 1 (Textbook):**Stewart,*Calculus, Early Transcendentals*, 8th edition.- We will plan to cover most of chapters 5-8,11
- I will be using the 8th edition, Early Transcendentals, but only as a rough guide.
You will okay with any edition of this textbook.

**Feedback from students:**Many students report that they bought this book but did not use it. For this reason, I recommend going the cheapest route possible (options are listed below). Despite many students' reports, we still believe that it is a useful reference (and the best students both read the book as well as do the exercises in the book). - There are many options for acquiring this book.
- Cengage Unlimited. This will give you access to not only calculus but also to chemistry.
This is not required, but if you're buying this for chemistry already, no need to buy something else for calculus.
What you need to know:

- Here is a Cengage Video that describes Cengage Unlimited and describes how to get access.
- Create an account and log on to WebAssign
- Course Title: SCalcET8
- Class Key for Math 131: wustl 5315 3133
- Class Key for Math 132: wustl 9400 0879
- Textbook: Calculus: Early Transcendentals - 8e.
- Click on "eBook"

There will be two help desk sessions if you need help accessing cengage unlimited. These will be held in Wrighton Hall near the entrance of room 300.

Session 1: 8/28/2019 12:00PM-2:00PM

Session 2: 9/6/2019 12:00PM-2:00PM - 8th Edition at Amazon
- 7th Edition at Amazon
- 6th Edition at Amazon
- 5th Edition at Amazon

- Cengage Unlimited. This will give you access to not only calculus but also to chemistry.
This is not required, but if you're buying this for chemistry already, no need to buy something else for calculus.
- For my money, I would buy a copy of the 6th or 7th edition, used, from Amazon for about $10-20.
**Are you in the right class?**We want you to succeed, without repeating a large amount of material.**Math 131 Calculus 1:**Limits, Derivatives, maxima and minima, L'Hopital's Rule**Math 132 Calculus 2:**Integration, area, volumes, surface area, infinite series, Taylor series**Math 233 Calculus 3:**Partial derivatives, multiple integration, Green's theorem and vector calculus**Discussion Sections**- You will meet with your Assistant to Instructor every Thursday (starting with the first Thursday of classes). In these meetings, you will learn new material and topics as well as work on problem solving. Come to these meetings prepared by doing your homework. You will have group work to do that will be graded and part of your grade.
- We will drop two discussion section grades in computing your group work score.
**Where to go for Help:**- Instructor Office Hours (see hours listed at the top of this page)
- Assistant to Instructor Office Hours: Mathematics Help Room. Available M-F between 10AM-5PM.
- The Learning Center
- Learning Center - Calculus
- Engineering Tutoring Services (only available to EN students)

**Peer Led Team Learning (PLTL)**- The PLTL program is voluntary but highly recommended. If you want to participate, you must sign up the first week of class by completing an Application (this link won't work until the evening of Aug 26).
- Students who fully participate in the PLTL program and attend at least 9 of the 11 sessions will be given the option to earn 1 credit hour for their participation. Grading will be pass/fail (or credit/no credit). Enrollment will take place within the PLTL groups at the end of September.
**Calculators:**- While you are free to use any calculator for your homework,
you will not be allowed to use a calculator for exams:

**NO CALCULATOR ALLOWED FOR EXAMS** **Canvas**- You can find your grades, access WeBWorK and more at Canvas. All the sections are merged into section 1, so log on to Math 132, section 1.
**WeBWorK**- To log in, go to Canvas (more details to come)
- You will do weekly homework online. You are responsible for making sure this is done by the due date.
**Important!**There may be more than one set due each week!**Collaboration:**Feel free to work together but remember, you have to be able to perform by yourself on exams!- We will drop two webwork grades in computing your webwork score.
**Recommended Homework**- The textbook contains an enormous number
of homework exercises at the end of each section.
You will get the most out of the course if you do all of these
(yes, I really do mean
of these). I will recommend a subset of these problems for you to focus on. These will not be collected or graded.__all__ **Study Suggestions - What to do daily and weekly**- Do ALL of the workbook problems after lecture. Make sure you understand these problems! You can even look ahead at the problems that are coming the next day.
- Read one section ahead--be prepared for lecture and discussion section. This has the risk of making lecture slightly boring with the potential benefit of understanding more.
- Do the WebWork homework early.
- Do the Recommended Problems.
- Go to discussion section prepared. This means that you have attempted or done most of your homework problems and attempted or done many of the recommended problems.
- Go to PLTL (if you are signed up) or do the PLTL problems (they are typically available after the PLTL groups get them).
- If you don't understand something, visit your instructor and Assistant office hours. You can see Mathematics Help room for assistant office hours and other suggestions on where to get help.

**Exams:**- Exams will be a mix of multiple choice questions (probably around 15-20 of these) and hand graded questions (probably 2 of these).
- The final exam will be entirely multiple choice.
- You will not be allowed anything other than writing tools at the exams.
- Find your room and seat before the exam: Exam Seating
- Find your multiple choice score the day after the exam here: Multiple Choice Exam Scores
- View past exams here: Old Exams (some semesters are more helpful than others).

If that link doesn't work, here is an alternate source: Old Math 132 Exams - Find all your grades here: Canvas. Webwork grades will be uploaded to Canvas at the end of the semester.
- Do not miss an exam. Make up exams (one different days) are not given. If something happens (you are sick, family emergency, etc) contact Dr. Blake Thornton as soon as possible. You may be able to receive an excused absence for one exam.
- The final exam covers all material from the course.
- The Exam schedule can be found on this page, in the course description in Webstac.
**Curving**:- If the average of the exam is below 75% then all exam scores will be adjusted upwards by adding a constant to everyone's score so that the average is 75%.
- If the average of an exam is above 75%, no adjustments will be made.
- Example: You get a 80% on Exam 1 and the actual average of Exam 1 is 50.0%. Thus, everyone will receive 25.0 "curve points" for Exam 1. Your score (to be used in grade calculations) for Exam 1 will therefore be 105%.

**Exam Schedule**-
Exam Schedule Exam 1 Thurs Sept 19, 6:30-8:30PM Exam 2 Thurs Oct 24, 6:30-8:30PM Exam 3 Thurs Nov 21, 6:30-8:30PM Final Fri Dec 13, 10:30AM-12:30PM **Grades:**Your final grades will be computed according to the following formula:-
Grade = 0.75*( e1+e2+e3+ 2*e4 - min(e1, e2, e3, e4))/4 + 0.15*(WeBWork) + 0.10*(Group Work)

Basically this means that all exams are weighted equally and worth 75% of your grade. The final exam can replace your lowest semester exam. Webworkis worth 15% of your final grade, discussion sections are worth 10%.A+ TBA A [90,infinity) A- [85,90) B+ [80,85) B [75,80) B- [70,75) C+ [65,70) C [60,65) C- [55,60) D [50,55) F [0,50) - Pass/Fail Policy: You must get at least a C- to earn a "Pass".
**Disability Resources (DR):**- Special accommodations for exams are offered to students who have registered in a timely manner at Disability Resources (DR). Information about DR may be found at https://students.wustl.edu/disability-resources/. Students who desire to take advantage of this service should go to the DR early in the semester, well before the first exam. Once approved for accommodations, students should work with DR for these exams.
