Math 10C (Calculus III)

Fall, 2018



The textbook for this course is: James Stewart, Calculus: Concepts and Contexts, 4th edition (Enhanced with Webassign)
Grading policy:
Student's cumulative average will be computed by taking the maximum of these two grading schemes:
  • 10% Homework, 25% Midterm I, 25% Midterm II, 40% Final Exam
  • 10% Homework, 30% maximum of Midterm I and Midterm II, 60% Final Exam
Homework is a very important part of the course and in order to fully master the topics it is essential that you work carefully on every assignment and try your best to complete every problem.
Your total homework score will be based on the total possible homework points available. After each homework you can complete an optional online HW review highlighting key concepts. If you complete the questionnaire for an assignment and that assignment is your lowest homework score, that score will be dropped from your homework average.
Homework may be done alone or in a group of at most people. Partners may be in any of the sections of the class. You are free to change partners between assignments. Problems should be solved together, not divided up between partners. For homework help, consult your textbook, class notes, lecturer, and TAs. It is considered a violation of the policy on academic integrity to:
  • look or ask for answers to homework problems in other texts or sources, including the internet, or to
  • discuss the homework problems with anyone outside of your group (unless you are in office hours with someone from the instructional team).
Supplemental Instruction and Content Drop-in Tutoring:
Teaching + Learning Commons, Academic Achievement Hub with your Department support, will be offering Supplemental Instruction (SI) and Content Drop-in Tutoring for this class.
SI sessions will begin meeting on Monday, October 1st. Typically, SI sessions meet three (3) times a week for 50 minutes each time. See the website for more information.
Content Drop-in Tutoring will begin on Monday also. The general tutoring hours are 12pm - 7pm on Mondays through Fridays, and online Saturday and Sundays. This schedule varies by course, so it is recommended that students check the website before coming in. See the website for more information
Discussion Board:
The Piazza forum for our class where questions can be posted and answered. It is a very helpful resource!
