No makeup quizzes will be

JavaScript:
Below are some easy sample programs to get started! To see the code, add this term to the beginning of each URL: view-source: ...or after clicking on a linked program then click on tools and developer tools, and then look at elements (in Chrome) or script (in Explorer).
This one just prints Hello World to the screen and the console. To see the latter, open tools and developer tools, and then look at console.
This one calculates the value of sin(x)/x for any input.
For really learning JavaScript I recommend the free book Eloquent JavaScript by Marijn Haverbeke.
Here is a great tutorial by Matt Mongeau for writing javascript games. Here's the Pvs.P Awesome Pong variation William and I wrote using Mr. Mongeau's code: top player uses a-w-s-d, bottom uses arrows; first to 10 points wins.
Here's William's Mouse-over mole game. Mouse over the mole to gain as many points as you can in 30 seconds. My high score is 229.

Here's the link to the text website .
Here is the student solution manual
(buy or rent)
..and the study guide .
...while looking for these I noticed that cramster/Chegg
has answers to problems in Stewarts.
In Bierce, lower floor, there will also be available tutoring .
For integration, you can't beat wolfram alpha ,
now providing 3d graphs of surfaces while finding
indefinite double integrals and
definite double integrals .
Step by step solutions are available too: 3 a day with free account signup.
Here is another with e.
Here is an example with variable limits (non-rectangular domain of
integration ).
Here is a triple integral.
Here is one with polar coordinates .
