This page tells you where to turn for help with CalculusQuest^{TM}. Your instructor and other members of your
support team are there to help you when you get stuck but it is your
responsibility to get help as soon as you need it.

Your support team. . . . . | Led by your instructor. |

On-line resources. . . . . . | Technical help and tidbits. |

**A rule to live by:** For help with technology, ask a techie.
For
help with math, ask a mathematician. Computer consultants are techies,
your instructor and TA's are mathematicians.

If you would like to refer to a calculus textbook, we recommend that you look at the one of the following texts. These texts are currently used in community colleges and universities in Oregon. The first reference is the current text of the on-campus version of MTH 251.

**Vargerg, Purcell, Rigdon**,**Calculus**, 8rd Edition, Prentice Hall.-
**James Stewart**, Single Variable**Calculus**(early transcendental version), 4rd Edition, Brooks/Cole. -

The departmental web site.contains a wealth of information, including information about the following:

The Oregon State University Department of Mathematics runs a **
Math Learning Center (MLC) ** in Kidder 108. The MLC offers

- Free help with math questions on a walk-in basis.
- A non-circulating library of older (but current) mathematics texts and books.
- An open study area.
- A computer lab in the MLC, open to all OSU students enrolled in a math class. The lab is sometimes reserved for specific classes. A schedule is posted outside the door.
- Out-of-class quizzes and tests for OSU math classes.

If you would like advice on mathematics courses or related
questions about the OSU undergraduate program, the place to turn is to
a ** Math Advisor. ** To find a math advisor, use the web site
above, call 541-737-4686, or go in person to the ** Math Department
Main Office ** located in Kidder 368.

The Math Department Main Office can help you with most aspects of the OSU bureaucracy and is a good place to go if you know you need help but aren't quite sure who can provide it.
