Lecture 02, SUMMER 08


Instructor: Marcelo Disconzi


The course will develop the basic ideas of integration. The concept of integral, its different interpretations and its relations to derivatives will be explored. Some applications to physics and engineering will also be covered.

The textbook used in this course is Single Variable Calculus: Stony Brook Edition, 3ed, by James Stewart. You are free to use other books if you wish, but keep in mind that exercises are going to be assigned from Stewart’s textbook. Lecture 02 meets TuTh1:30pm- 4:55pm in room P130 of the Physics Building (don’t you know where the Physics Bld is? Click here for a map).

Exercises are going to be assigned every week and they must be submitted before the deadline. Late homework will not be accepted.

Below there is a list with the assigned exercises and the date they are due. Part of the grade will also be based on quizzes taken in class. There will be one Midterm and one Final.

The list of exercises will be updated every week and the date of the quizzes will be announced in class and posted on the webpage, so it is important that you check the website on a regular basis.

My office hours are on Tue 11:00am-1:00pm at the MLC and  Thu 5:30-7:30pm at my office (2-114, second floor of the Math Building; don’t you know where the Math Bld is? Click here for a map). Recall, however, that the MLC is a place for helping students; hence, you may come to the MLC any time you want and certainly you will find a tutor there to help you.

If this schedule does not work for you, you may send me an email ( to set up an appointment.

Office hours

First Quiz: Tuesday 6/17, based on sections 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3.

Second Quiz: Thursday 7/3, based on section 5.7.


Final! Thursday, 7/10 from 1:30 to 4:55pm, covering all material but with emphasis on sections 5.5, 5.6, 5.7, 5.10, 6.1 and 6.3. Here is a practice final. Recall that the practice final counts as a homework. Recall also that there is a part of the final — covering section 6.2 — which is taking home. This part needs to be handed in on the day of the final and it has to be done with a partner. Contact me if you did not get the name of your partner or the list of problems.
