Important note:
This course is a one-half credit course which meets for the first
half of the semester only. |

**Instructor:** My name is Thomas Hunter.
My office in the mathematics department is in Dupont 185. You can
reach me by phone at 328-8244 or by email at thunter1@swarthmore.edu

**Office Hours:** Tuesdays from 10 to 11am,
Wednesdays from 8 to 10 pm, Thursdays from 3 to 4 and by generous
appointment. The stated slots are times you can be sure to find me in
my office and willing to talk. Other times are fine, but to be sure
that I am available, you should make an appointment with me. Of course
you should feel free to stop by anytime and see whether I am available.

**Text:** We will use the text *Calculus* by
Deborah Hughes-Hallet, et al. It is available at the bookstore.

**General Game Plan:** We will cover chapters
seven and eight of the text together with as much of Chapter nine as
is possible. A more detailed plan but quite tentative
is included with this document and should be updated periodically.

**Meetings:** Regular lectures will be
09:30am-10:20am Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in Dupont 133.

**Homework:**I will assign homework in lecture
and each week's worth of homework will be due in class the following
Friday. (Wednesday if there is an exam.) I expect to have a grader
for the course, but I will try to keep close track of how the grading
is going.

**Exams:** There will be one mid--term and a
final exam. Both will be held during our regularly scheduled class
meetings. The midterm will be Friday, February 7. The final will be
Friday March 7. I will announce any changes in these
dates at least a week before the actual date of the test.

**Grades:** The mid--term will be worth 100
points. The final will be worth 200 points. Your grade will be based
on the sum of these scores.

**Computer and Electronic resources:** There
is a web page (you may be reading it right now) associated to this
course. You may find it via my home page at http://www.swarthmore.edu/NatSci/thunter1/.
Other resources you may find useful are the Macintosh graphing
calculator, Mathematica, and Maple. Use of these or any other
computational tool will not be a required part of the course. (In
fact I will ban calculators on most tests.) However, in class
demonstrations will all use one or another of these tools and you may
find them very useful for learning the concepts. Copies of all
programs for all classroom demos will be stored in our class folder on
the Classes server.

**Clinic:**
Math Clinic will be run every evening which precedes a weekday, starting
sometime in the first or second week of the semester. The Clinic is a great
resource for all students---not just for those with difficulties. It is
a place where you can work together with other students and know that help
and encouragement are available whenever you need it.

**Late work:** Generally speaking late work will
never be accepted and exams may never be taken late. In the case of irreconcilable
conflicts you may schedule an exam earlier than the official time, but
make up exams will not be given after the regularly scheduled exam except
for the most extraordinary circumstances. (For example, global invasion
by extraterrestials.)
