- TEXTBOOK:
Jon Rogawski,
*Calculus (Early Transcendentals)*, W. H. Freeman and Co. - Customized material (Rutgers edition): general information, sample workshop
- CALCULATOR: A graphing calculator
is required for this course. We have traditionally used the TI-83
or 83+ and
recommend either of them, but any calculator with equivalent capacities can
be used, such as the popular TI-85 or 86. Calculators
*will not be permitted during exams*.

CAUTION: Your schedule may vary. There are many sections of Math 152. The order in which topics are covered, the rate at which they are covered, the precise times of examinations, and the assigned exercises will vary from section to section. There will also be workshop writeups.

The exact timing and coverage of exams during the semester will be announced by each lecturer, as will homework assignments. As a student in Math 152, your assignments and obligations will be set and announced by your individual instructors, and you will find them out only by attending your own class. Lectures are held twice each week. There is an additional workshop each week, and some sections may have an additional practicum session each week.

The final exam for the course will be given on
**Thursday, December 16
from 4 to 7 PM**. All sections take the same final
examination. Earlier in-class exams are written by each
lecturer.

The standard grading scheme for Math 152 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.
