Text: We will cover roughly Chapters 12-16 of Thomas' Calculus, with all suggested homework (below) coming from the Second Custom Edition for Colorado State University (identical to the 13th edition, for our purposes), written by Thomas, Weir, and Hass. Also, MyMathLab might be packaged with the book if you buy the book through the CSU Bookstore. We will not be using MyMathLab as part of the course, but you are welcome to use it on your own if you would like. Previous editions of the book have very similar content, but a few of the problem numbers might be different; you are welcome to buy an older version if you want, but it's on you to make sure you are trying the correct problems.

Office hours:
All office hours will be held in the Calculus Center in Weber 17, in the basement of the Weber building (west side of the Oval). If you enter Weber from the south entrance of the building (between the two wings, near the bike racks), make a right just inside the door and go downstairs. From there, just follow the signs. Once the schedule is finalized, it will be posted on the Calculus Center webpage.
Tutoring options: Aside from office hours (above), there are three options for getting help outside of class.
Exam rooms: See the link at the bottom of this website, in the "Current Interest" section. These are typically posted shortly before Exam 1.

Here are some practice problems for each exam, pulled from the exams in previous semesters:
These review sheets for Exam 1, Exam 2, Exam 3, and the Final Exam spell out the range of topics you are expected to know. Also, here's the formula sheet that will appear as page 2 of your final exam.
Please note that this is a work in progress and that there is no guarantee that instructors will exactly follow these notes. However, these notes could be handy as you try to discern what topics we emphasize and also for a rapid review of various sections, e.g., near exam time.
HW 1: Due WEDNESDAY, August 30.
HW 2: Due WEDNESDAY, September 6.
HW 3: Due FRIDAY, September 22.
HW 4: Due WEDNESDAY, September 27.
HW 5: Due FRIDAY, October 6.
HW 6: Due FRIDAY, October 20.
HW 7: Due FRIDAY, October 27.
HW 8: Due FRIDAY, November 3.
HW 9: Due FRIDAY, November 17.
HW 10: Due WEDNESDAY, December 6.
These are only suggested problems; you do not need to turn them in. The exam problems will be similar to those in the suggested homework, so it is well worth your time to try these problems. We will not cover exactly one section per day (see above), so just keep trying problems until you have not yet seen the appropriate material.
There are many problems for some sections, probably more than you need to achieve mastery. If you feel you have mastered the topics in some section, I suggest skimming the remaining problems for anything you misssed rather than slogging away at problems that you already know how to do. It's up to you to decide how best to spend your time!

Chapter 15:
WARNING: Some problems in this chapter involve integration techniques that you might not have learned (e.g., trig substitution) or otherwise go beyond what is expected of you in this class. Integration of basic functions, u-substitution, and integration by parts will suffice for Math 261. If some suggested problem cannot be handled with these, set it up but don't bother evaluating it.
