Office Hours (Room 204 Jeffery Hall): 11:30-12:30 Monday, 10:30-11:30 Wednesday and by appointment. (Appointment requests should be made 3-5 business days in advance. Same/next day requests may not be accommodated, depending on schedule conflicts.)

Course Description.

Math 126 is a full year course in Calculus for students who have studied Calculus in high school. However, it is intended to be self-contained, so that it is possible to follow it without any background in calculus. Math 126 will cover differentiation and integration with the emphasis on applications in Business, Economics, and Social Sciences. Thus, the material is substantially greater in depth on some topics than is normally attempted in a calculus course.

A detailed lecture/study plan is available on the course page and it will be updated regularly. You are expected to read the assigned sections and try to solve the suggested problems before each lecture. You should also make a list of the things you find difficult to understand and ask questions during class/office hours/tutorials. This will help you get the most out of this course.

The course material includes, but is not restricted to, the following chapters from the book. Additional study material will be made available as needed.

Fall : 2-5, 10-13

Winter : 14, 15, 17 (and, of course, we will need material from the Fall term!)
