You should bring your student id to all exams. You may be asked to show it to a proctor when you hand in your exam.
Textbook
Calculus by Michael Spivak, 4th edition, which you should already possess from 171. In 172 we will cover chapters 1327 (although we will skip chapters 16, 17, 21, and possibly some of 2527). Earlier editions (which may be cheaper) have essentially the same text, but the exercises differ in numbering and arrangement. It is up to the student to make adjustments with regard to page numbers, chapter numbers, and content if using an earlier edition. The 4th edition will be on reserve at Carlson Library to facilitate this process.
How To Get Help in MTH 172
Here is a list of resources available to you if you need help in the course. If you are having difficulty, do not hesitate to ask for help!

Attend lecture: it is a bad idea to skip class!

Attend workshop: ditto!

Attend the instructors’ office hours: you are free to attend office hours for either instructor. You may freely show up during scheduled office hours, or make an appointment at another time if you feel you need more help.

Go to the Math Study Hall: Hylan 1104, 5pm–8pm MondayFriday, staffed by Math graduate students. No appointments required.

Talk to your classmates: if you are struggling, you are probably not alone! Find other students you can work on the material with (for example, your groupmates in workshop), and organize a study group outside of class.
