### Announcements:

• Welcome to Math 360!
• Here are solutions to the final exam. I managed to get a Canvas site, and will upload your grades there (I'll put the midterm grades there, too, so we can make sure my records are accurate.)
• Darrick and I have really enjoyed teaching you this semester! We all worked very hard and covered a lot of ground. Best wishes for a restful and fun winter break.
• Here are some practice problems for the final exam and the answers (re-uploaded, with a couple of typos fixed and a few elaborations).
• Topics: The exam will emphasize the end of the course, but some earlier material is unavoidable. Some topics you don't have to worry about: Numerical integration (trapezoids, Simpson, etc), definitions of functions like ln(x), derivation of Taylor's theorem. The practice problems are reasonably representative.

### General Information for this class:

• Class meetings are MW from 1:30 - 3:00. Mondays we are in Fagin 114, and Wednesdays we are in DRL A6.
• We're going to use Fitzpatrickâ€™s Advanced Calculus, 2nd edition, and cover the first nine chapters together with chapter 12.
• Since I am no longer dean of the College, my office is DRL 3E5A. Office hours Monday evenings 6-8 in my apartment (102 McIlhenny in the lower Quad) and Tuesdays 3-4:30 in my office (DRL 3E5a).
• Updated!. The teaching assistant for this course is Darrick Lee. His office is DRL 3C5, office hours Tuesdays from 5:30-6:30 (beginning September 5) and Wednesdays 3-4pm (beginning September 13); email: ldarrick [AT] sas.upenn.edu

### Basic Ground Rules:

Homework will be assigned weekly or so, and due at lecture the following Monday (so everyone gets a crack at recitation). Since the first two weeks have lecture only on Wednesday, the first homework will be due on Wednesday September 6. The homework will often contain problems that are intended for you to present in recitation, so we can all practice civil mathematical discourse.

There will be two midterm exams, on Wednesday October 4 and on Wednesday November 8. We'll talk about how these will work as the time comes closer. The final exam is scheduled for Thursday December 14 from noon to 2 in DRL A2..
