 Meeting times:
 Lecture: MWF 1:00  1:50 in Solon Campus Center 120. Professor Peckham
will present the lectures. Professors' responsibilities at UMD are
typically divided between teaching, research, and service.

for a short description of what professors do.
 Discussion Sections: Tuesdays and Thursdays. Everyone should be signed
up for one of the six discussion sections (sections 914). There are two
Teaching Assistants for the course: Laurence Lin and Riitta Schaublin.
Both are students
at UMD, pursuing their masters' degrees in the Applied and Computational
Mathematics Program.

They spend roughly half of their time teaching this
course and the other half taking their own upper level courses and working
on their research projects.
 Texts:
 Required: Calculus, by James Stewart, 5th edition.
 Optional: Student Solutions Manual for Single Variable Calculus by Stewart
This Manual includes worked out solutions to the odd problems. (The main
textbook includes only answers to the odd problems.) CAUTION: If this
solutions manual is used improperly, it is more likely to hurt than help.
Specifically, it should be only used after you have tried to do a problem on
your own, but have been unable to finish the problem.
NOTE: This collection
of solutions does NOT include solutions for Chapters 13 and 15. Solutions
for those chapters are included in the Student Solutions Manual for
Multivariable Calculus.
 Optional: Study Guide for Single Variable Calculus by Stewart
NOTE: This Study Guide does NOT include material for Chapters 13 and 15.
Study Guides for those chapters are included in the Study Guide for
Multivariable Calculus.
 Student Response Cards (Clickers). The clickers will be used for a combination of survey questions which should help me make decisions to improve my lectures, and for short quizzes. Typically these will be either at the beginning or end of a lecture. Information on registering your clicker is posted on the course home page.
 Prerequisites: Math 1296 Calculus I or Math 1290 Calculus for
the Natural Sciences, or Math 1597 Honors Calculus I, or equivalent,
or advising placement via the Math Placement Exam.
Syllabus
This course covers the second part of a standard introduction
to calculus. It in includes discussion of vectors, applications
of integrals, transcendental functions, series, and
multivariable functions and partial derivatives.
Some supplemental material,
not included in the text, may occasionally be presented in lecture.

The 17% Quiz and HW weights will be distributed as follows:
Clicker quizzes 3% (drop the lowest 2); Online HW 4% (drop the one lowest); written HW 3% (drop the one lowest); Quizzes 7% (drop the one lowest).
Grades for the clicker quizzes, online HW, written HW, three hour exams, and final exam will be assigned on a
single curve for all six sections together.
The curve will be at least as "generous" as 90% for A's, 80% for
B's, 70% for C's, 60% for D's.
Further adjustments will be made by the TA's in their own sections by taking into
account the Quizzes. Final course grades will then be assigned by the TAs,
subject to the constraint that as many grades will be raised as
lowered due to the contributions of the Quizzes.
