Additional material online (available through the Course website http://www.mathstat.dal.ca/~tkolokol/classes/1000):
Textbook: Calculus  Early Transcendentals, Fifth Edition, by James Stewart. This textbook will also be used in Math 1010 by those students who continue in Calculus in the Winter term of their first year. It is bundled with a solution manual. Students who intend to continue Calculus in their second year are encouraged to purchase an extended version of the textbook which also covers the topics covered in Math 2001/2. Used textbooks, including previous editions, can also be used. The material hasn't changed much in the last 100 years; but the publisher regularly makes small changes in problem and chapter numbering from one edition to the next, so you need to be aware of that.
If you find the textbook difficult, you might consider the (optional) Study Guide which emphasizes the most basic ideas and includes more steps than the Solutions Manual in working through typical problems. The Guide is available through the Bookstore (a few copies will be available for shortterm borrowing in the Reserve Section of the Killam Library and in the Math&Stat Learning Centre, Chase B009).
Homework: Homework will be given out and graded electronically, using the online AIM system. Expect about one mandatory AIM assignment per week. In addition, practice questions (not graded) are given (see below).
Grading scheme: AIM Assignments: 20%; Two midterms (October 16 and November 20): 30%; Final Examination: 50%. A final exam grade of at least 40% is required to pass the course. Calculators are NOT allowed during the midterm or final examinations. The first midterm and the final exam are common to all the sections. The second (inclass) midterm will be specific to your individual class section, written by your instructor. Sample midterms and finals will be provided.
Conversion scale: [050) F, [5055) D, [5558) C, [5862) C, [6265) C+, [65,70) B, [7075) B, [7580) B+, [8085) A, [8592) A, [92100] A+.
Tutorials: Please go to Room B009 and sign up for a tutorial session that fits your schedule. These are run by graduate students and consist of problem solving sessions. They are designed to give you more practice with the type of problems that might appear on exams.
Math&Stat Learning Centre: Room B009 in the basement of the Chase Building. A calculus tutor will normally available on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. (5 p.m. on Fridays). First come, first served, no charge. There are large tables where you can work together (on Math or Stats classes only, please).
The Diagnostic test and preparatory classes Dalhousie's College of Continuing Education is offering Saturday refresher classes for Calculus as well as a precalculus course. A selfassesment test ( http://www.mathstat.dal.ca/~brown/diagnostic.htm ) gives you the opportunity to identify weak topics in a nonthreatening way. A mark of over 27 out of 32 on this multiplechoice precalculus test is very good, and less than 14 is very worrying. For more information about these classes see here.
Students with disabilities are encouraged to register as quickly as possible at the Student Accessibility Services if they want to receive academic accommodations. To do so please phone 4942836, email access@dal.ca , drop in at the Killam, G28 or visit our website at www.studentaccessibility.dal.ca.

Assignments: All sections of Math 1000 do online (AIM) assignments. These are mandatory and are worth 20% of your grade. See AIM webpage for more information about these. THERE WILL BE NO MAKEUPS FOR MISSED OR LATE AIM ASSIGNMENTS.
The work you do each week is in two parts.
(a) First, you should try the oddnumbered Suggested Problems from the appropriate sections of the text. These problems are listed below and have fairly complete answers in the Solutions Manual. No credit is given for these, but they are essential. The exams will be based primarily on questions very similar to the Practice Problems. Please try hard not to use the Solutions Manual at the first hint of difficulty!
(b) Second, about once per week, there will be online AIM assignments worth 20% of your mark.
Suggested problems: We do not attempt to cover every detail of the sections of the text given here. The practice problems indicate the emphasis in each section. Other topics may also be covered in class.
