Suggested practice problems
UCI Calculus Resources (including practice exams and video lectures)
Solutions to Version A of Midterm 1
Solutions to Version A of Midterm 2
Solutions to the suggested problems, the practice midterms
(the sample ones on the above page as well as the ones distributed in class),
and the sample finals
can all be found
in a dropbox for our course on EEE.
This first course in calculus will explore limits and differentation,
including some applications of derivatives.
See the lecture schedule
for more details.
A confident grasp of precalculus mathematics, especially algebra,
will be crucial to succeed in the course.
Please talk to your instructor or TA if you find you need help brushing up;
some helpful review material can be found near the bottom of
UCI Calculus Resources page.
We will be using the 8th or UCI custom edition of
James Stewart's Single Variable Calculus: Early Transcendentals
as our textbook.

Your final letter grade will be determined by the following components,
weighted as indicated.
Students will be assigned a letter grade based on the following scale:
97-100 A+, 93-96 A, 90-92 A-, 87-89 B+, and so on,
without curving and without rounding scores
(although individual exams and quizzes may be curved
at the time they are graded).
There will be two 50-minute midterm exams,
both given in class,
the first on Friday, October 27
and the second on Wednesday, November 15.
A missed exam will result in a score of zero, except in case of a verifiable emergency.
Make-up midterms will not be offered under any circumstances.
The first midterm will test material from Chapters 1 and 2,
and the second midterm will material from Chapters 1-3.
The (cumulative) final exam will be held Saturday, December 9, 1:30-3:30pm,
in SSH 100.
Please refer to
for the math department's policy on requesting a make-up final;
such requests must be received by Friday, November 17 in order to receive consideration.
Note that during exams you will not be permitted any notes,
nor the use of a calculator,
cell phone, computer, abacus, slide rule, table of integrals, or similar aids.
Seating may be assigned through a seating chart,
and you will be required to present photo ID.
There will be eleven quizzes
given throughout the quarter, always in discussion.
As on the exams you will not be allowed a calculator or any notes.
You should use the quizzes, which directly count for 10% of your grade,
as a gauge of your preparedness for the exams.
There will be no make-up quizzes, but your lowest score will be dropped.
You will receive and complete your assignments online using a system called
but for off-campus access you will need to be running
Assignments will be posted each Thursday, starting October 12,
and typically due the following Friday by 11pm,
according to this Webwork schedule.
The homework counts for only a tenth of your grade,
but it is one of the most important elements of the class.
Typically the best way to prepare for the exams will be to do problems.
In fact it is highly recommended that you also complete
optional, ungraded problems.
