ANNOUNCEMENTS 
Posting date  Contents 
Aug. 19  A PDF file viewer as a plugin to the web browser is needed to view the course syllabus and homework solutions in PDF format. The most common one is Adobe Acrobat. If you don't have one, you can download for free (LINK). 
Aug. 22  Problems 5.1: 2,10 in 1st assignment of HW 1 are removed. You are not required to do these two problems at this time. 
Aug. 24  Starting from Aug 28 (Monday), a lecture note for each lecture will be posted on this webpage. I will try to post it at least one day before the class. The idea is to focus on listening to lectures instead of writing notes. Please bring to class your note printouts. 
Aug. 24  Starting from Aug 28 (Monday), homework will be assigned in each class, be collected in next class, and be handed out in next next class. This way, I can have a faster feedback on your learning, and you would not accumulate your one week's homework for the last minute. 
Aug. 24  Please use the resources specified on this webpage to get help with lectures and homework. 
Aug. 27  Section 1.6 (Limits Involving Infinity) has been postponed till before Section 4.3 and 4.4 (Curve Sketching). Please see the updated Syllabus. 
Aug. 29  I graded all the problems in HW 1, but only the circled grades were counted and recorded. 
Sep. 8  The 1st exam will be on Sep. 15 (Friday) in class. It is a 50minute closedbook exam covering lectured contents till (including) Sep. 13 (Wednesday). Please prepare and get help from me or TAs. 
Sep. 12  Because of the conflict with the Math Department Colloquium, Sep. 13 (Wednesday)'s office hours will be posponed to Sep. 14 (Thursday). The time will be from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. 
Sep. 12  We will have a recitation on Sep. 13 (Wednesday) for Sep. 15 (Friday)'s exam. 
Sep. 12  There will be a pizza party for students and faculty of Calculus I and higher classes at 4:00pm on Sep. 21 (Thursday) at the patio on the south side of Clements Hall. Soft drinks will be provided. 
Sep. 25  Because of the conflict with the Math Department Colloquium, Sep. 27 (Wednesday)'s office hours will be posponed to Sep. 28 (Thursday). The time will be from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. 
Oct. 2  Because of the conflict with the Math Department Colloquium, Oct. 4 (Wednesday)'s office hours will be posponed to Oct. 5 (Thursday). The time will be from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. 
Oct. 2  The 2st exam will be on Oct. 13 (Friday) in class. It is a 50minute closedbook exam covering lectured contents till (including) Oct. 11 (Wednesday). You will be allowed to bring one page notes of letter size prepared by yourself. Please prepare and get help from me or TAs. 
Oct. 30  Because of the conflict with the Math Department Colloquium, Nov. 1 (Wednesday)'s office hours will be posponed to Nov. 2 (Thursday). The time will be from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. 
Oct. 30  Because of the conflict with the Math Department Colloquium, Nov. 8 (Wednesday)'s office hours will be posponed to Nov. 9 (Thursday). The time will be from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. 
Oct. 31  The 3rd exam will be on Nov. 10 (Friday) in class. It is a 50minute closedbook exam covering lectured contents till (including) Nov. 8 (Wednesday). You will be allowed to bring one page notes of letter size prepared by yourself. Please prepare and get help from me or TAs. 
Nov. 16  Because of the APSDFD (American Physics Society, Division of Fluid Dynamics) conference, there will be no class on Nov. 20 (Monday). Please print out and read that day's lecture note, and then do homework 26. The due date of homework 25 and 26 is on Nov. 27 (Monday), after the Thanksgiving holidays. 
Nov. 16  In the week after the Thanksgiving holidays, the Friday's class will be advanced to Thursday. Course review for the final and the teaching evaluation will be given in that week. The weight of the final in the total score is 30%. It is therefore very important to get prepared. The schedule of the final can be found in the course syllabus (LINK). 
Nov. 30  The schedule of the final can be found in the course syllabus (LINK). You will be allowed to bring one page notes of letter size prepared by yourself. The weight of the final in the total score is 30%. It is therefore very important to get prepared. Good luck!
