Calculus, Early Transcendentals, Volume 1 by James Stewart (6th Edition), with WebAssign code.
CPS units (clickers) and Graphing calculators (TI 82, 83, 85 or 86 recommended) will be used. $15 clicker rebate coupons will be handed out in discussion classes.
|Rebate coupons for the clickers were intended to be bundled with your text. You can buy Volume 1 of the Stewart text at the UConn Coop, online directly from the publilsher (with a discount), and many other places. CAUTION: Make sure you get WebAssign codes bundled with the text as they cost about $25 each semester when purchased separately. Volume 1 of Stewart is used only for Math 1131. You will need to purchase Volume 2 for Math 1132 and the multivariable volume for Math 210. We chose the single volumes as the recommended text since were able to have WebAssign codes (for one semester) bundled with each single semester text. However, you are able to purchase combined versions (a complete singe-variable version for Math 1131-1132 or one large, heavy book for 1131-1132-210) but make sure you get two or three semesters of WebAssign codes bundled with them. When bundled with the text, the first Webassign code is free and additional semesters of WebAssign codes when bundled with the text cost $10 each after the first.|
|The publisher has set up a special web page,   http://ichapterssites.com/ichapters/micro/?cluster_id=1756,    for UConn students to purchase a text online with the WebAssign codes bundled. You can also purchase the combined Volumes I and II with Webassign at a discount.|
|Clickers will be used in the lectures beginning week 2. You must login to HuskCT by then to register your CPS transmitter.|
Web Assign registration: In some sections you will need a class code from your instructor plus a WebAssign code to register online. A link to WebAssign can be found above at the top of the class web page. For other sections, you will be registered by your instructor and need to obtain you login ID and password from the instructor.
Home work: There will be home work assignments for each section of the text. Each assignment will be made available on WebAssign several days before the section is covered in class. The DUE DATE for each assignment will be set by your instructor and will generally be one week after the material is covered in class. You will get 5 attempts to answer each question. After each attempt you will be told whether your answer is correct or not. Full solutions will be available on WebAssign after the due date. If you are not able to get the correct answer after two or three attempts, we recommend that you seek help from your instructor, the Q-Center, a tutor, or another student.
Quizzes: There will be a two question quiz on each home work assignment. These quizzes will be timed assignments on WebAssign and will be due one day after the home work assignment. There may be additional quizzes in the discussion sections.
