This course begins a sequence of three courses in calculus. Coverage includes limits, continuity, differentiation and some integration of algebraic and transcendental functions. Applications of the calculus include related rates, maxima and minima
of functions of one variable, calculation of areas, volumes, arc length and growth.
I. Grading Policy Your grade will be based on the following :
Ø 1 Pre-Test (75 points)
Ø 2 Tests – (100 points each)
Ø 2 Mini-Tests- (50 points each)
Ø 2-3 take home problem sets (20 points each for a max of 60 points)
Ø 10-15 Homework checks (5 points each for a minimum total of 50 points)
Ø Final Exam (cumulative) (200 points) – Tuesday, 12/11 8-10am
The letter grade will be assessed based on the percentage of total points earned based on the following scale:
A 90%- 100% C 68%- 79%
B 80%- 89% D 58% -67%
If you have any questions as to why you earned a certain grade on a particular assignment, you need to discuss it with me the SAME day that the assignment was returned. NO CHANGES WILL BE MADE AFTER A RETURNED ASSIGNMENT LEAVES THE ROOM!
II. Make up Policy No Make up tests are given. Any missed tests will be recorded as a zero. Your lowest test grade will be replaced with the comparable score on the final. The final exam may NOT be made up or dropped. Late homework will NOT be accepted. If you are unable to attend class, you are still responsible for all material covered and work assigned during that meeting. If you know you are going to miss a class or there is an emergency, let me know BEFORE so that we can make any necessary arrangements.
III. Homework will be assigned each lecture to be completed online at WileyPLUS.com (see attachment for login details). You are expected to attempt every problem, show all needed work, and check and correct your answers. Keep all of your homework in an organized notebook the entire semester. I will collect assignments randomly to check. Tests are based on the homework and class work, you have to practice math in order to learn!
IV. Attendance A student with 2 or more unexcused absences before February 14 or missing the first day of class will be excluded from the class. Any student with 5 absences by February18 may be dropped from the class. After February 18 any student who is dropped will receive a W. You MUST attend class to be successful!
V. Cheating Any form of cheating will result in a zero for that assignment for the first offense and an F in the course for any further offenses. Zeros for cheating may not be replaced.
