Prof. Ilya Kofman

Office:   1S-209   phone: (718) 982-3615

Course Time and Place:

Mondays and Wednesdays    6:30pm - 8:10pm   in 1S-217

Webwork:  Computer-graded homework software that students are required to use in this course: Webwork website

Textbook:  Larson, Hostetler, Edwards, Calculus, Eighth Edition, 2006. If you plan to take only Calculus I and II (Math 231 and 232), you can purchase Calculus of a Single Variable, Eighth Edition, 2006 by the same authors. If you plan to take Calculus III (Math 233), buy Calculus,, which contains both single and multivariable calculus.

Homework:  Assignments will be announced in class and then posted on this website. Different editions of the textbook have the same problems with different numbers. Here is a guide to match problems among different editions. Any changes will be announced in class. Answers to odd-numbered exercises are in the back of the book. I highly recommend working jointly on homework problems with fellow students.

Grading:  The course grade will be determined as follows:  15% Webwork + 50% Exams + 35% Final Exam.

You must pass the exams to pass this course. Without exception, you must take the final exam at the time scheduled by the university.

Help:  My office hours are on Mondays 2:30 - 4:30pm, and Wednesdays 3:30 - 4:30pm in my office, 1S-209.

Optimal Method of Study:  (1.) Come to class (attendance is mandatory).  (2.) Read the relevant sections after class.  (3.) Do the homework.  (4.) Compare your solutions with other students.  (5.) Come to office hours or the help room with any remaining questions.
