Math 151: Lecture Schedule and List of Homework Problems - Spring 2020

The following is an approximate schedule of lectures. Each lecturer decides the schedule for his or her class, and the actual schedule of your class may vary. For example, the schedule below shows Exam 1 in Lecture 8, but your class might have Exam 1 in Lecture 7 or 9. The schedule below shows the rates of change being covered in lecture 13, but your lecturer might cover this topic in lecture 10. See your lecturer for the actual order of topics and dates of exam in your class.

For each topic covered, the list of official textbook homework problems is shown below. You should do all the textbook exercises for each topic listed below, and you should be able to do any problems like these on an exam.
