Go to announcements | schedule | homework list.

Textbook: Stewart, Single Variable Calculus, 3rd edition (1995). We will cover almost all of chapters 0-5.

Test dates: M 2/17 (Test 1), M 3/10 (Midterm), F 4/18 (Test 2), Final Exam: 100 points each.

Grading System: Your grade will be based on your test total, quiz grades, homework grades, and class participation. Your semester score will be determined as follows:

{ 2 x Midterm + Test1 + Test2 + 4 x Final + HW + Quizzes } / 10.

Grades will be assigned according to the following scheme:

90-100 A	83-86  B+	70-74  C+	50-54  D
87-89  A-	79-82  B	65-69  C	 0-49  F
		75-78  B-	55-64  C-

If you take the course Pass/Fail, you need 50 points to pass.

Attendance: We meet M, W, Th, F. Attendance is REQUIRED every day. You are expected to BE ON TIME (or you may be marked absent). I wll allow 5 absences in the semester; after that they will affect your grade. (I ignore the first week of class.)

Class structure: Each class will meet for an hour (except that Thursdays may be longer). It will have a lecture on new material, followed by discussion of previously assigned HW problems. There may be an occasional quiz, not necessarily announced beforehand.

Readings: You will be expected to read the section before the lecture on it. This is so that you will learn more from the lecture. You should do the assigned HW problems promptly after the lecture on that section. KEEP UP TO DATE. Calculus is not easy to cram.

Test Policy: You are responsible for everything covered in class and for all assigned readings and problems. No makeup tests will normally be allowed, but I will use my discretion. If you miss a test be prepared to document the reason. No early finals under any circumstances. If you have a question about any grade, you must see me before the next test.

Homework: Most problems will not be graded; they will be discussed in class (as time allows). Any problem , not necessarily assigned, may be discussed. If you have unanswered questions, please come to see me in my office.
The homework assigned is a minimum. It is a sample of the various types of problems. If you want to learn calculus better, do more problems. The last few in each section are generally the most interesting and challenging.

Calculator: You will need a scientific calculator (one that has exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions). No graphing calulators or laptops will be allowed on tests. You should do all assigned problems without a graphing calculator (no matter what the book says).

Extra Help: Besides asking questions in class and seeing me in my office, you can go to the Math. Dept.'s help room (LN 2216) or tutoring at the Center for Academic Excellence in the CIW Library. Also, I strongly recommend that you form a study group for discussing theory and homework, and that you consult classmates when you get stuck.
