WELCOME TO MATH 223/224 INTRODUCTION TO CALCULUS/DIFFERENTIAL CALCULUS
On the Math 223/224 Director's page you will find the syllabus with grade policy and distribution of points to tests and quizzes/take-home assignments and WebAssign. Also, several previous semester final exams (midway through, when 223 ends).
For WebAssign, our class key is binghamton 1995 8714
The e-book for Stewart's Precalculus 7e is in several places. It is easiest to go to My Assignments, where you will find the e-book, broken down into Chapters and Sections.
Find Steps to get to Kazmierczak videos here.
Exercises in Precalculus, Stewart, 7th ed. are to do addition to the WebAssign. They won't be collected, but you should have questions to ask in class.
WEEK 1 AUG 24-27
Summary of assignments for first week–if any exercises give you trouble, rest assured we'll cover them in class. Early exercises give me a broad idea of how familiar you are with fundamentals.
EXERCISES ARE NOT HANDED IN, EXCEPT WHEN ASSIGNED AS 'TAKE-HOME'.
WEEK 2 Aug 30-Sept 3
By Monday Aug 30 be acquainted with WebAssign. Ask in class if you are still unsure.
Saturday Sept 4 installment:
WEEK 3 SEPT 6-10
The videos can also be found under 'Resources' on your WebAssign homepage. See the screenshots here: Steps to get to Kazmierczak videos

I didn't mean to include the App D for tonight! We aren't there yet. I took it off ~
MIDTERM IS SEPT 27 AND FINAL IS OCT 18
See WEEK 5 for weekend homework.
Saturday Sept 18 and Sunday Sept 19 Weekend trigonometry videos
FOR MONDAY, WATCH THESE! YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID
Here are 30 minutes of videos taking us from understanding where the points on the unit circle come from to graphing the sine and cosine functions from these points.
We named the x and y coordinates by looking at the special angles 0, pi/6, pi/4, pi/3 and pi/2. Here, Professor Norm Prokup does it with a bit of simple geometry (Pythagorean theorem), which will prepare you well for calculus – which after all relies on analytic geometry! Learn and enjoy ~
Don't forget to complete TAKE HOME #1
Catch up on WebAssign and textbook exercises. I will add a trig batch on Monday.
Mon Sept 20-Tues Sept 21 Don't forget the midterm is a week from today, Monday. Here are a couple of items I promised today. They should help.
Wed Sept 22-Sunday Sept 23
Weekend study for Monday's Midterm
Wed Sept 29-Thurs Sept 30
You can start using the Stewart Calculus e-book on your Cengage site now. It's in the same box as the Precalculus book. I could have been using the calculus book's section numbers from the start, but I honestly did not understand the schema. The only one that wasn't replicated in the precalculus was the App D. Which I taught with videos and my notes. So…
Oct 4 before class: CLASS WARMUP: Sec 6.2
Oct 4 end of day: Secs 6.1 & 6.6
Oct 6 before class: CLASS WARMUP: Sec 6.3
Oct 8 before class: CLASS WARMUP: Sec 1.5
Oct 8 before class: CLASS WARMUP Sec 1.6
Oct 8 end of day: Secs 6.2 and 6.3
Friday Oct 1-Sun Oct 3
See the WebAssign that are due early in week and get those going, don't wait till you are late
Read Stewart Calculus Secs 6.2 and 6.3
View all Kazmierczak videos in text Secs 4.1-4.6
Mon Oct 4-Tues Oct 5
Do WebAssign CLASS WARMUP: Sec 6.3 before class on Wednesday
View the super short Where e comes from
Read Calculus e-book Sec 1.5 Limit of a Function (intuitive) and view the Kazmierczak and Mosely videos in Precalculus e-book Sec 13.1
Read Calculus e-book Sec 1.6 Calculating Limits Kazmierczak and Mosely videos in precalc text Sec 13.2
You can do WebAssign before they are due for most of the ones listed in last week's summary
Wed Oct 6-Thurs Oct 7
Here are the limit videos the Math 220s watch; you will find them helpful:
Finding limits from a graph (little rough quality, but good)
Optional, good insight, might actually help you better understand the actual limits we have done:
I will add more problems to this for the skills test, which will be next Wednesday!
Fri Oct 8-Sun Oct 10
More of the Math 220 videos:
IMPORTANT Infinite limits in which a function goes to positive infinity or negative infinity as x approaches a:
Mon Oct 11-Wed Oct 12
Change in plans – There is no skills test, due to a lack of time to thoroughly cover the rest of limits and review for Monday's final. I didn't figure Fall Break into my calendar.
Do the following Stewart Calculus Exercises and have questions for any and all sections ready to ask in class
Sec 1.6, Exercises #1, 10, 15, 17, 19, 23, 25, 29, 31, 33, 45, 51, 54*
Sec 1.8 Exercises #3, 7-27 odd, 39-48 all
Did you watch Kazmierczak and Mosely videos for Sec 13.1 and 13.2 in Stewart Precalculus?
Here are the mini-videos I post for Math 220 on continuity:
Thurs Oct 14-Sun Oct 17 Study well for the Math 223 final
Soon I will post a brief review video. Topics to study (see problems in Stewart and WA) are those since the midterm:
I notice that WA does not have Sec 1.8 practice. So definitely do the problems I assigned.
Here are the two previous exams and solutions, posted by Dr Kazmierczak on the main website.
THESE ARE NOT SUFFICIENT PRACTICE!! REVIEW WEBASSIGN AS WELL AS STEWART HOMEWORK TO BE PREPARED
