Text: Calculus, 6th Edition by James Suart. It is important and expected that you read the text, especially the examples.
There will be daily homework, due at the beginning of class each day other than Thursdays and exam days. Homework will be posted on Pioneerweb after each class. A subset of the problems will be graded. The lowest three homework scores will be dropped. Please read the note on homework and quizzes.
There will be seven unnanounced quizzes throughout the semester. Quizzes will be taken the first ten to fifteen minutes of class. There are no make-up quizzes. The highest five quiz scores are used to calculate your quiz grade. Please read the note on homework and quizzes.
There will be four in-class, midterm exams, tentatively scheduled for
These midterm exams will test the material covered since the previous exam.
- Thursday, September 13;
- Monday, October 1;
- Friday, October 19;
- Monday, November 19.
The final exam is scheduled for Tuesday, December 18, at 2:00pm. The final exam is three hours and will be comprehensive. Do not make arrangements to leave campus prior to the final exam. (Such situations will result in the loss of a letter grade on the final exam.)
Absences permitted by the college (athletics, performance, religious observation, etc.) must be coordinated prior to the class period in order to make arrangements for the missed homework or exams. There are no make-up quizzes. This coordination must be done in person prior to the absence.
If you have specific physical, psychiatric or learning disabilities and require accommodations, please let me know early in the semester so that your learning needs may be appropriately met. You will need to provide documentation of your disability to the Associate Dean and Director of Academic Advising, Joyce Stern, located in the lower level of the Forum (x3702).
