TABLE OF CONTENTS OF Goldstein, Lay, and Schneider's Calculus and Its Applications
Homework: Your homework is your most important effort in this class. Homework is how you learn the material that will be on the quizzes and exams. Expect to do 2-3 hours of homework for every hour of class meeting time (on average 10-15 hours per week). Keep all you homework together in a folder so that if you are having trouble in the course, you can bring it with you when you go to see your instructor or get tutoring. The syllabus lists the recommended homework problems. These are NOT to be turned in.
Quizzes: There will be: (1) one 30 minute mini-exam on algebra review on January 25th, (2) 8 short, 15 minute quizzes on selected Fridays starting on February 2nd. All quizzes will be based on your homework assignments. Out of 8 quizzes I will count 6 best towards your grade. The algebra mini-exam and the quizzes will be worth 40 points each. Your final quiz grade will be calculated as follows: Q=[(sum total of the best 6 quizzes)+(the mini-exam score)] x (5/14) for a maximum of 100 points.
Exams: There will also be three midterm exams (100 points each) and a final exams (200 points). If you miss an exam you should let me know immediately. Make-up tests will only be given in appropriate circumstances and if you miss an exam and do not see me within a week, you will be dropped from the course.
Attendance is mandatory, and if you have three or more unexcused absences, you will be dropped from the course.
Student Behavior: Students are expected to behave in a courteous and respectful manner towards the instructor and their fellow students; this helps create a positive and supportive learning atmosphere in the classroom. Please be on time for your lectures, turn off your cell-phone and refrain from talking or any other activity that could be disruptive to the class. If you need to leave the class early, inform your instructor before the lecture starts.
Final Grade: Your grade will be based on the quizzes and exams in the following way:
Quizzes - 100 points Midterm Exams - 300 points Final Exam - 200 points
To receive a C grade for this course you must have at least 70% on the core exam and 70% overall. As you can earn maximum of 600 points that means that you must get over 420 to receive C or better in this course.
Disability Statement: Qualified students with disabilities needing appropriate academic adjustments should contact me as soon as possible to ensure your needs are met in a timely manner. Handouts are available in alternative accessible formats upon request.
Note:Do only odd numbered problems unless otherwise noted.
