The following link Taylor.nb is a Mathematica file to play around with graphs of Taylor series. To open, right click on the link and choose "Save Link As". Then save it on your computer and open it with Mathematica. As a Swarthmore student you are allowed to download a personal copy of Mathematica on your computer. Check with IT for more details.

Midterm 1 and its Solutions.

Last year's midterm. It has questions in topics we didn't cover.
Solutions to the midterm.

Textbook

Calculus (5th edition) by Hughes-Hallett, Gleason, McCallum et al.

Topics we will cover

The following topics will be covered: Integration Techniques (substitution, by parts, trigonometric, rational fractions)
Applications of integration (areas, arc length, density, center of mass, etc.)
Sequences and Series (geometric series, convergence)
Taylor series
Introduction to differential equations

The course grade will be based on:
Homework 10%,
Webwork   10%,
Midterm 1   25%,
Midterm 2   25%,
Final Exam   30%.

Homework

There will be written homework due roughly every week. Collaboration in the homework is permitted, but you are not allowed to copy someone else's work. The solutions must be written individually. You have to mention on your problem set the names of the students that you worked with. You can find the homeworks for this class here.

There will also be homework to be turned in online through WebWorK, an open-source online homework system for math and sciences .

• Go to WebWorK.
• Enter your WebWorK login name and password. The login name should be the same as your Swarthmore email user ID and the password is the same as your Swarthmore password. If at the begining of the semester you cannot login to WebWorK , please email me and I will set up the account for you and contact you when it is activated.
• Links to some useful WebWorK pages can be found here.
• WebWorK Feedback: All WebWorK problems have a buton for "email instructor" Clicking this buton allows you to write a message that is emailed to the instructors. Someone will get back to you within a day or so (and maybe sooner). You do not have to copy out the problem (the system automatically does this). If WebWorK won't accept your answer, then say what that answer is and how you came up with it. It helps us if you give some idea of your thought process.

Exams

On the midterms and the final exam you must work on the problems on your own. No collaboration permitted in the exams. Also, no calculators or notes are permitted.

The first midterm will be on Tuesday February 26 from 7 to 9pm. Location: Sci 101.

The second midterm will be on Tuesday April 2 from 7 to 9pm. Location: Sci 101.

The final exam will be on May 16 from 7pm to 10pm at Sci 199. The exam is a cumulutive three hour exam.

Resources

• You can come to my office hours to ask questions.
• You can attend the thrice-weekly study sessions scheduled by the π-rates.
• You can ask Kaitlyn Litwinetz, our Academic Support Coordinator, for help.
• You can attend the Math/Stat help clinic on Sundays or Thursdays from 7-10pm.
• You can request a private tutor.

Suggestions from Past Math 25 Students

• Use the pirates. It will significantly increase your understanding.
• Go to office hours.
• Study hard and take the webwork and homework very seriously.
• Do your homework in groups. It will help to have the concepts explained outside of class.

Pi-rate Sessions

Pi-rate sessions offer a casual environment for meeting classmates and discussing math. At sessions you can ask questions about your coursework, prepare for exams, work collaboratively with classmates, and have fun interacting with the Math 25 community. Plus there are always snacks provided.

The sessions are Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 to 10m in Science Center 158. The pi-rates are:
• Kate Derosier `14: Mathematics Major and Cognitive Science Minor.
• Mariel Freyre `15: Mathematics and Physics Major.
• Peter Ballen `14: Mathematics and Computer Science Major.
• Allison Gantt `13: Mathematics and Educational Studies Major, Latin America Studies Minor.
• Briani George `15: Health and Societies Major and Pre-Med.
• Andi Merrit `13: Mathematics Major, Engineering and Public Policy Minor.
