Text:  Hughes-Hallet, et al.   Calculus, Single Variable, third edition.  
Wiley. New York. 2002.
You will be required to subscribe to the e-grade service, which is included 
with new copies of the text bought at the bookstore, and available as a 
supplement for used copies of the text.
The TI-86 Calculator is required. Other calculators may be allowed, 
but you are responsible for getting the necessary functionality out of them.  
There may be tests or quizzes where specific calculators, or any calculators, 
are not permitted.
Instructor:  Campbell, R. B.  Wright 328.  x-32447   e-mail: campbell
Office hours:  Unless there is excessive demand, office hours will not be
restricted to specified times.  You may either catch me after class, call me on
the phone, or leave an e-mail message to find a time that is mutually
convenient. (I shall generally be available after class.)
N.B.: There will also be scheduled times when a graduate student or advanced
undergraduate is available in Wright 338 to help you with the material in this
course.  Help is also available in the Math Lab (Center for Academic Achievement
-- SSC 214). 

There will be three tests worth 100 points each and a final worth between 100
and 200 points.  A portion of the tests may be common to several sections of
this course.  Tentative test dates are:

   chapter 1                                          13 September    100
   chapter 2, sections 3.1 - 3.5                      18 October      100
   sections 3.6 -3.11, chapter 4                      22 November     100
   chapter  5, comprehensive                          17 December     125?
(The coverage and dates are tentative.  I reserve the right to omit sections
of the text and/or provide supplementary material, including material from
chapters/sections not listed.)

There will also be about 10 quizzes worth 7 points each on the fridays when 
there is not a test (there will be no quiz on December 13); the best seven will 
be added to your point total (i.e., 49 possible points).  There will be no 
make-up quizzes.

Homework will be 
submitted through the e-grade system, and in some manner 
contribute 50 possible points to your point total.  You will need to use the 
url http://egrade.brownstone.net/live/classes/rcampbell/ and register. 
[Answers to problems which are not assigned are also available on e-grade.]

Attendance is not a component of your point total, but it is a courtesy to me
to send me an e-mail (campbell@uni.edu) when you cannot attend class.

On Wednesday, August 28 I shall pass around a seating plan where you will
indicate where you will sit for the remainder of the semester.  [Unfortunately, 
there is no guarantee that the configuration of the chairs in the classroom 
will remain constant throughout the semester.]  I hope that this will 
facilitate my learning of your names and your learning of each other.  Although 
I (as a representative of the faculty) and the library are two important 
reasons for coming to UNI to learn instead of reading books at home, your peers 
are also a valuable resource.

Although this is the third edition of this text, it is not perfect.
I shall try to draw to your attention any inaccuracies I notice.  You
are invited to draw errata to my attention.  You are also invited to
correct any mistakes I make in lecture.

Those of you who live in the residence halls and wish a more informal
atmosphere to interact with faculty are reminded of the `take a
professor to lunch (or breakfast or dinner)' program.  Check with your
local residence hall desk for details.

Calculus provides a means to analyze problems in many disciplines.  Calculus I 
focuses on the differential calculus which studies rates of change.  You should 
improve your ability to analyze problems, beyond the specific application of 
calculus to problems.  

In the event of a fire [alarm], Wright Hall may be exited by the stairwells 
which are located at each end (north and south) of the building.  Fire 
extinguishers are located near each stairwell on each floor.  In the event of a 
tornado, go to the corridor on the floor where your class is meeting, there is 
not room for everybody to gather on the ground floor if classes are in session; 
do not remain on the third (top) floor in the event of a tornado.
