Homework Assistance: time and location to be determined
Optional Text: Advanced Calculus, 2nd Edition, by Patrick M. Fitzpatrick. A copy of the text is on reserve in Odegaard Library. I will be posting detailed lecture notes on-line.
Course Objectives: In this course, we will lay the groundwork for a theoretical understanding of calculus and improve problem-solving and proof-writing skills. We will study properties of the real numbers, sequences of real numbers, series, limits and continuity of functions, and sequences of functions.
Grading: Your grade will be made up of:
Homework: Homework assignments will be posted on-line and will be due via Canvas on Thursdays at 11:59 pm. While students are encouraged to work together on homework, the work you turn in should be your own. In particular, if two students work together to create a logical argument (the skeleton) of a proof, each student should write up the details of the proof independently. Do not copy work from another student (or any other source) and do not allow your work to be copied.
If you copy work from another student, another text, or an online source, or allow your work to be copied, you will receive a 0 on the problem for a first violation. Further violations will result in more severe penalties.
Make-Ups: Late homework assignments will not be accepted for any reason. I do not grant extensions to anyone. I will drop one homework so that you may miss one homework without penalty to your grade.
In the case of observance of religious holidays or participation in university sponsored
activities, such as debate or athletics, arrangements must be made at least two weeks in advance of an exam. You will be required to provide documentation for your absence.
Make-up exams will not be given. If you miss the midterm exam due to unavoidable, compelling, and
well-documented circumstances, your final exam may be weighted more heavily. Contact me as soon as possible if you must miss the midterm.
Resources for Students with Disabilities: Your experience in this class is important to me. If you have already established accommodations with Disability Resources for Students (DRS), please communicate your approved accommodations to me at your earliest convenience so we can discuss your needs in this course.
If you have not yet established services through DRS, but have a temporary health condition or permanent disability that requires accommodations (conditions include but not limited to; mental health, attention-related, learning, vision, hearing, physical or health impacts), you are welcome to contact DRS at 206-543-8924 or firstname.lastname@example.org. DRS offers resources and coordinates reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities and/or temporary health conditions. Reasonable accommodations are established through an interactive process between you, your instructor(s) and DRS. It is the policy and practice of the University of Washington to create inclusive and accessible learning environments consistent with federal and state law.
