Math 141B College Calculus I - Fall 2016

Welcome to the website for David Hemmer's Math 141B- College Calculus I.  The class meets in NSC 205 Monday-Wednesday-Friday from 9:00 -9:50 a.m..

The textbook is J. Stewart, Calculus: Early Transcendental Single Variable, 8th custom UB ed.
The custom UB edition consists of Chapters 1-11 of the standard 8th edition of J. Stewart, Calculus: Early Transcendentals.

Important: Since the homework will be online with WebAssign you should feel free to use an older version of Stewart, or even a different calculus book if you prefer, they are all very much alike. Just make sure the book is designed for scientists and engineers, not one of the "applied calculus" books. Be aware your Math 142 instructor may not be so flexible, and the Stewart text is used for both courses.
