Textbook: Calculus, One and Several Variables, by
Salas, Hille and Etgen, 8th edition.
Prerequisites: M408C or equivalent with a grade of
at least C, or advanced placement credit approved by the mathematics department.
If you do not meet these requirements you will AUTOMATICALLY be
dropped from the course.
Syllabus: Most of chapters 9-15, and part of chapter
Attendance: Attendance and participation in
lecture and in discussion section is mandatory.
Homework and quizzes: There will be weekly problem
sets, listed in http://www.ma.utexas.edu/users/sadun/F02/M408D/hwk.html.
These will not be collected, but will be the basis for short quizzes given
(almost) every Wednesday in section.
Exams: There will be two in-class midterm exams, on
October 3 and November 5, plus a final exam on December 14. These
exams will all be closed book. However, each student will be allowed to
bring a single letter-sized ``crib sheet'' (2-sided) to each midterm, and
2 crib sheets to the final. These notes must be HANDWRITTEN ORIGINALS
- NO XEROXING ALLOWED.
Grading: Each midterm counts 25%. The final exam counts
50%. The homework quizzes, taken together, count 25%. At the end of the
term I will drop your lowest 25%. The final grade distribution is
neither a straight scale nor a fixed curve. It depends on how well the
class does as a whole, but I have typically given more B's than C's, more
C's than A's, more A's than F's, and more F's than D's.
Honor system: There will be a vote on the first
day of class on whether to govern the class by the honor system.
Disabilities: The University of Texas at Austin provides
upon request appropriate academic accommodations for qualified students
with disabilities. For more information, contact the Office of the Dean
of Students at 471-6259, 471-4641 TTY
