Lab Instructions and Assignments

Instructions

Maplets for Calculus:

M4C assignments are done in lab and/or at home to prepare for the quiz in recitation the following week.:

To access the Maplets for Calculus:

  • Go to the Math Department MATH 151 Home Page and click on the Maplets link or go directly to http://m4c.math.tamu.edu/.
  • Once there, click on the TAMU link at the top-right and log in using your NetID and password.
  • Expand the desired section. Click on the name of the desired Maplet.
  • The first Maplet will take longer to open because it needs to start the Java engine.

The Maplets require Maple on the client machine:

  1. Students can purchase Maple 17 from https://software.tamu.edu/ for $55.
  2. Students can access the M4C at any TAMU Open Access Lab.
  3. Students can remotely log into the TAMU Virtual Open Access Lab at https://voal.tamu.edu/ and access the M4C from there.
  4. Students can access the M4C at the Math Department Calclabs.
  5. Students can remotely log into the Math Department Calclabs using the NoMachine NX Client which can be downloaded at http://www.nomachine.com/download.php. Here is an Installation Video: Flash     M4V (for Ipod/Iphone).

    Homework

    Quizzes

    I will try to post the sections the quiz will cover by at least the Monday before the quiz. Blank quizzes and their solutions will typically be posted the Monday evening following the quiz. Please be sure to reload the page if nothing is showing. You may wish to practice with the quizzes found on this page that I gave in my previous course. However, they are likely to be a bit different due to rescheduling and choice of material tested on.

    • Final Exam Information. The final exam locations are the same as where lecture is held. That is, HELD 111 for Secs. 516 - 518, and HELD 107 for Secs. 570 - 572. The times come from the final exam schedule. Please see the linked schedule or the syllabus.
    • Guidelines for Common Exams.
    • Past Common Exams. In addition to solving the suggested problems from your textbook and working on past homeworks, studying these can be particularly beneficial for the current exam. The more you practice, the better! Don't rely solely on reviewing your notes!!
    • Remember that you NEEDthis Scantron for ALL exams (1, 2, 3 and the final). Please note that you must purchase one. DO NOT print as it will not work! You will also need your Texas A&M ID and a #2 Pencil. Failure to bring any of these three things may result in up to a point reduction penalty!

    Extra Credit Opportunity

    We are pairing up with Triseum for a game study to test out their game for learning calculus, called Variant: A first-person 3D game on Calculus.
    You have the following three options:
    • You want TO participate in the study. In this case, please read the information in this PDF on how to get involved. If you successfully complete the study, then you will receive 5 extra points on your highest scored midterm exam.
    • You do not want to the participate in the study, but you still want extra credit. There is an alternative MATLAB assignment (click) that you can complete instead. Doing so successfully by Friday, Oct. 20 will earn you 5 extra points on your highest exam grade. You CANNOT complete both the game study and the alternative MATLAB assignment for 10 extra credit points. You must choose one or the other if you want extra credit.
    • You do not want to do either. You may choose not to participate nor do the alternative MATLAB assignment, and receive no extra credit
