More course information is available on D2L.

### Requirements

- Growth mindset!
- Rogawski, J. & Adams, C. (2015).
*Single Variable Calculus, 3rd edition, Early transcendentals*. ISBN-13: 978-1-4641-7174-1

### Recommendations

**Approved calculators**include graphing calculators without wireless capabilities and without computer algebra systems (e.g., TI-89 or TI-94).- Attempt WeBWorK and book problems before class. This will inform you what you need to learn.
- Use study groups outside of class to discuss problems.
- Mix up problem sets when doing practice problems. For example, try problem from 1.1, then 1.2, then 1.3, then back to 1.1, etc.
- Math Lab
- Khan Academy: calculus videos and practice problems
