Course Information
Text:Essential Calculus, Second Edition (with Enhanced WebAssign), by James Stewart (ISBN 9781133425823). Note that WebAssign access is required for online homework. The ISBN given here comes bundled with a WebAssign access code that will be good for Calculus 3 as well.
WebAssign: Online homework can be found on WebAssign. If you purchased a WebAssign access code previously, you should be able to reuse the same code. Otherwise all students will have a two-week grace period of access from the beginning of the semester after which they will have to purchase access. If you have a used copy of the textbook, WebAssign access codes can be purchased separately online.
Desire2Learn: Lecture notes, homework answers, and student grades will be posted to D2L.

Tips for Succeeding in APPM Calculus Courses
- Think actively, not passively. Learning math is not like watching a movie. During lectures and recitations you should take notes and actively process the information that your instructor presents.
- Memorizing is not enough. Aim to thoroughly understand the material, don't just memorize it. Exam problems often look different from homework problems but they can be solved if you have a conceptual understanding of the topics.
- Doing homework is not enough. In addition to attending lectures and recitations and completing the homework, you are expected to spend additional time studying for the course, about 2 hours per day or 10-12 hours per week. The extra time should be spent reading your textbook, doing additional problems, and visiting office hours.
- Practice, practice, practice. What works for athletes and musicians also works for math students. If you’re an athlete and you enter a competition without practicing, you know that your chances of winning will be slim. If you’re a musician and you perform in a concert without practicing in advance, you will not play well. Similarly you cannot pass calculus exams without working through many, many problems before each test.
- Confront your weak spots. If you’re a baseball player who can consistently hit fastballs but not curve balls, you know that your coach will throw curve balls at you until you can hit them. If you’re a musician who has a difficult passage to perform, you know that your music teacher will tell you to practice that passage repeatedly until it’s no longer difficult. Similarly if you have a weak spot in math (trig, algebra, arithmetic, etc.), you should practice extra problems in those areas until you've mastered those topics.
- Find a study buddy. Learning math is more fun when you can discuss it with friends, and talking about math will deepen your understanding. Introduce yourself to classmates you meet and try to form a study group.
- Know when you don’t know and ask for help. We, your instructors and TAs, want to see all of you succeed! When you don’t understand something, ask. That’s what we’re here for.
