Textbooks Reading 
Salas, Hille &
Etgen (SH&E), Calculus,
10th edition, Sections 8 & 1011 Eric Carlen, Maria Conceição Carvalho, (C2) Linear Algebra from the beginning, Freeman & Co, NewYork 2007 Students are strongly advised to read the sections taught each week in advance, following the weekly Calendar . 
Homework  Students
are required to do the homework every week (see the
weekly Calendar ). The homework will NOT be graded. Students needing some feedback are advised to turn it in at the Monday recitation class and to ask the TA to grade it. The homework will serve as a basis for the weekly quizzes, the 1hour tests and the final exam. 
Pop Quizzes  There
should be 12 quizzes
during the Fall semester, approximately once a week (see the weekly Calendar ). The pop quiz can be offered at any time either in recitation classes or during the lectures. It will be a test on the homework that is due on the beginning of the week. Each quizz contains 5 short questions, each graded 0,1 or 2, similar to the ones addressed in the homework of the week. Only the 10 best quizzes will be counted in the final grade. An absence on a quizz will be graded 0 (zero) (so that only if the student is absent less than twice, it will not affect the final grade). 
1Hour Tests
