Dear Summer Math 50A Students:
I am so glad that you have signed up for Math 50A this summer! Calculus is
really fun and interesting and exciting!
This is a regular CR summer math class -- with one full semester compressed
into 10 weeks. We will meet 4 days a week for 10 weeks at the CR Eureka campus.
Here is information about the textbook.
This is the "short story" version:
You can CHECK IT OUT of the CR Library for the whole summer (LIBRARY,
http://www.redwoods.edu/eureka/library/, not bookstore). You need only check it
out once (you do NOT have to renew it every 2 weeks or anything like that). The
book will be due to be returned at the end of summer.
If you choose to purchase your own copy, you can find copies online very
inexpensively (certainly under $20, including shipping) because it is an older
edition. Make sure you get the correct edition and version because there are
many that look almost exactly the same.
For more details, please see this page, particularly if you are going to
purchase your own copy: http://www.tamimathcr.com/math-50a-summer-2015.html
If you order one, you can still check one out of the library until you have
your copy in hand -- then return the library book at that time.
Please also note this information on that page:
You also must have a graphing calculator and you will need a bound notebook
which you will use to create a Calculus Reference Book.
Our first day is scheduled to be Tuesday May 26 (the day after Memorial Day).
Monday May 25 is the Memorial Day Holiday and CR is closed that day.
The last day of class is scheduled to be Thursday July 30.
There will be CR Summer Math Lab available at the CR Eureka campus for extra
math help. It is recommended that you sign up for Math 252 (0 units) or Math 52
(.5 or 1.0 unit). You don't have to do that right now -- you can do it after
the first class (in case you have any questions).
I look forward to seeing you all soon! Feel free to contact me if you have any
