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 are organized by the Calculus Center but held in TILT Great Hall, on the second floor of the TILT building. The schedule of available office hours is available here. Please note that you are welcome to attend any Math 261 office hour, not just the two offered by your instructor.
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 Friday, January 26.
HW 2: Due Friday, February 2.
HW 3: Due Friday, February 16.
HW 4: Due Friday, February 23.
HW 5: Due Friday, March 2.
HW 6: Due Friday, March 23.
HW 7: Due Friday, March 30.
HW 8: Due Friday, April 6.
HW 9: Due Friday, April 20.
HW 10: Due Friday, April 27. (The last one!!)
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.
