**Textbook***Calculus, Early Transcendentals*by Jon Rogawski, published by W. H. Freeman. Some background material, linked here, is included in the "Rutgers edition" of the book. This material should be the only difference between the generally available book and the Rutgers version.- Students should have a graphing calculator available in class and while doing homework. Calculators may not be used during examinations.
- There are many sections of Math 151. The order in which topics are covered, the rate at which they are covered, the precise times of examinations, and the assigned homework exercises may vary from section to section. The exact timing and coverage of exams during the semester will be announced by each lecturer, as will the homework assignments. The problems listed below are suggestions. There will also be workshop writeups.
- The final exam for the course will be given on
**Thursday, May 6 from 4 to 7 PM**. All sections normally take the same final examination. Earlier in-class exams are usually written by each lecturer. - The standard grading scheme for Math 151 is as follows: The final exam is worth 200 points. Each hour exam is worth 100 points. The workshop writeups count for 75 points. A combination of quizzes and textbook homework gives 50 points. Adding this up, we get a maximum of 525 points that a student can get in the course. The course grade is determined by the number of points the student got out of 525. Individual lecturers may have slightly different numbers of points for workshops, quizzes and textbook homework. Check with your instructor.
