Prerequisite: PreCalculus and Trigonometry (Math 244 or Math 101 and 104)




Class Meetings 7:15AM8:40AM Mon Wed Fri room 221




Graphing Calculator Required




Recommended calculators for this class are TI83+, TI84+, TI85, or TI86. Calculators with symbolic algebra capabilities, e.g. TI89 or TI92, are not allowed for exams. Some of the exams are nocalculator exams.




Course Description




A study of the calculus of real valued functions including the following topics
Limits and Continuity Computation of Derivatives Applications of the Derivative Newton's Method Extrema Rolle's Theorem Mean Value Theorem Concavity Horizontal and Vertical Asymptotes Related Rates Integration Area Definite Integral Fundamental Theorem of Calculus Change of Variables Numerical Integration Applications of the Definite Integral Areas and Volumes Calculus of Exponential and Logarithmic Functions Calculus of Trigonometric Functions Introduction to Differential Equations




Attendance Policy




Students are expected to attend all lectures. If a student misses excessive class time, he/she may be dropped. Attendance is taken with a seating chart. All absences are the same, i.e. there are no “excused” absences. A student with four or more tardies may be dropped from the class.




Electronic Devices Policy




During lecture and exams please turn off all phones, pagers, music devices, tape recorders, etc.




Special Accommodations




Southwestern College recommends that students with disabilities discuss academic accommodations with their professors during the first two weeks of class. An alternate form of this syllabus is available upon request.




Homework




There will be homework due for every chapter. Repeated failure to complete homework assignments will be identified as nonperformance. The assigned homework problems will be posted on the class website.




Grading




Grade Computation




Your final grade will be a composite of six chapter tests and a Final Exam. The Final Exam is weighted as two chapter tests. Letter grades of A,B,C,D, or F are assigned to each chapter test and Final Exam. These are incorporated into the final grade based on the weight assignments A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, and F=0. Excessive F scores (two) will result in a lower class grade regardless of the weighted average score. There will be no make up tests. You should be able to access your current aggregate grade through the class website.




Example




Assume chapter test grades of B,D,B,C,B,A, and final exam grade of A. Then Class Grade = (3+1+3+2+3+4+4*2)/8 = 3.0 = B (note that for the class grade A is 3.5 to 4.0, B is 2.5 to 3.5, C is 1.5 to 2.5, D is 1. to 1.5, and F is 0 to .99)




Exam Policies




No makeup tests.




Knowing the correct answer to an exam question is insufficient—the correct answer must be written on the answer sheet.




Exam answers that confuse the grader will be marked wrong.




Grade Notification




The class website, www.staleyclasses.org, has the most current grade sheet. The grade sheet is password protected. You can access the grade sheet at any time after the first exam has been scored.




www.staleyclasses.org contains relevant information for this class including: homework assignments, current notes to students, information on exams, an updated syllabus, the current grade sheet (password protected), project descriptions, exam practice problems, practice tests, answers to practice tests, and other relevant information. So that you receive website update notifications please send an email message using the “get it” link under the appropriate “Notification” line. This will put you on the email notification list for the class.




Behavior Policies




A student may be dropped from the class for excessive absences.




Excuses: There are no "excused" absences in this class. All absences are treated equally.




If you are going to be absent on an exam day make prior arrangements with the teacher. There are no makeup exams for noshows on exam day.




Students who miss three classes are subject to being dropped.




A student may be excluded from the class for disruptive behavior.




Please do not leave the classroom during lecture. It disturbs the lecture and is rude.




Cheating




Behavior indicative of cheating will be handled by an oral exam. behavior example




The oral exam is an investigation of the rational for the “behavior indicative of cheating”. oral exam example




The outcome of this process will be one of: F grade on the exam, F grade for the semester, student drops the class, or reinstatement of the score.




This penalty also applies to any accomplice. So make sure that when you help someone they can defend their work.




Tutorial Services




The MESA Center, located in room 396, provides free tutoring for this course.




The Academic Success Center in room 420 also offers tutoring for statistics.




Not all of the tutors are qualified to tutor for this class. The names of the calculus qualified tutors should be known by the second week of class.
