MATH-2080-WBP01

Welcome to the permanent home page for Section WBP01 of MATH-2080 (Calculus 3) at Southeast Community College in the Fall term of 2021. I am Toby Bartels, the instructor.

Readings

The official textbook for the course is the 4th Edition of University Calculus: Early Transcendentals by Hass et al published by Addison Wesley (Pearson). You will automatically get an online version of this textbook through Canvas, although you can use a print version instead if you like. This comes with access to Pearson MyLabs, integrated into Canvas, on which many of the assignments appear. There is also a packet of course notes (DjVu).

Final exam

There is a comprehensive final exam at the end of the term. (You'll arrange to take it some time from April 30 to May 6.) To speed up grading at the end of the term, the exam will be multiple choice, with no partial credit.

For the exam, you may use one sheet of notes that you wrote yourself; please take a scan or a picture of this (both sides) and submit it on Canvas. However, you may not use your book or anything else not written by you. You certainly should not talk to other people! Calculators are allowed, although you shouldn't really need one, but not communication devices (like cell phones).

The exam consists of questions similar in style and content to those in the practice final exam on MyLab.

The final exam will be proctored. In the face-to-face class, you can take it on May 4 Tuesday, in our normal classroom at the normal time but lasting until 2:40 PM. If you have access to a computer with a webcam, then you can schedule a time with me to take the exam in a Zoom meeting. If you're near Lincoln, then we can schedule a time for you to take the exam in person. If none of these will work for you, then contact me as soon as possible to make alternate arrangements.
