***Prerequisite: HSU MATH 42 or 44 or 45 or math code 40.

• TEXT: Required: Applied Calculus, 2nd Edition, by Stefan Waner and Steven R. Costenoble. Brooks/Cole Pub. Co. ISBN/ISSN 0-534-36631-7

• Calculus I, CD, by Ed Burger- Great Lecture Series, Thinkwell Publishing.
Excerpts from Sensible Calculus by M. Flashman as available on the web from Professor Flashman.
• Catalog Description: Logarithmic and exponential functions. Derivatives, integrals; velocity, curve sketching, area; marginal cost, revenue, and profit, consumer savings; present value.
• SCOPE: This course will deal with the theory and application to Business and Economics of what is often described as "differential and integral calculus."  Supplementary notes and text will be provided as appropriate.
• \$\$Algebra Review. I have listed several on-line sites (besides that of our text) for help with algebra. If you don't do well on the on-line backgrounds assessment quiz [Blackboard], you might consider taking Math 46 (1/2 unit) [crn 42572] at HSU offered August 30-31 which does a blitz review of algebra.
• TESTS AND ASSIGNMENTS: There will be several tests in this course. There will be several reality check quizzes, two midterm exams and a comprehensive final examination.
• We will use Blackboard for some on-line reality quizzes. Here is some information about how to use Blackboard.

• You can also go directly to the HSU Blackboard.
• Homework assignments are made regularly. They should be done neatly. Homework is graded Acceptable/Unacceptable with problems to be redone. Redone work should be returned for grading promptly.
• Using the CD Tutorials: Whenever a CD tutorial is assigned, that should be viewed by the due date of the assignment. As part of that assignment, you should include a brief statement reporting on the tutorial's content. This content may be the solution of a specific problem, the development of a concept, or the organization of a technique. This CD tutorial report should be clearly presented in the assignment so that it can be read easily without searching through the problem work of the assignment. When homework is collected, the report on the CD tutorial will result in the addition of 2 points to your point total for the course.
• LATE HOMEWORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AFTER THE DUE DATE.
• You must submit a written request at the start of class for me to discuss in class a problem or a question you have about the previously assigned reading. I will be available after class and during my office hours for other questions.
• Midterm Exams will be self-scheduled and announced at least one week in advance.
• THE FINAL EXAMINATION WILL SELF- SCHEDULED.
• The final exam will be comprehensive, covering the entire semester.
• MAKE-UP TESTS WILL NOT BE GIVEN EXCEPT FOR VERY SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES!

• It is the student's responsibility to request a makeup promptly.
*** DAILY ATTENDANCE SHOULD BE A HABIT! ***
• Cooperative Activities: Every two weeks your partnership will be asked to submit a summary of what we have covered in class. (No more than two sides of a paper.) These may be organized in any way you find useful but should not be a copy of your class notes. I will read and correct these before returning them. Each individual partner will receive corrected photocopies.

• Your summaries will be allowed as references at the final examination only.

Every two weeks partnerships will submit a response to the "problem/activity of the week." All  cooperative problem  work will be graded as follows: 5 well done, 4 for OK, 3 acceptable, or 1 unacceptable.
Summary work will be used along with the problem of the week grades will be used in determining the 50 points allocated for cooperative assignments.

• GRADES: Final grades will be determined taking into consideration the quality of work done in the course as evidenced primarily from the accumulation of points from tests and various  assignments.
•  Reality Quizzes 100 points Homework 60 2 Midterm Examinations 200 points Cooperative work 40 points Final Examination 200 or 300 points Total 600 or 700  points
• Cooperative problem assignments and summaries will be used to determine 40 points.
• The final examination will be be worth either 200 or 300 points determined by the following rule:

• The final grade will use the score that maximizes the average for the term based on all possible points .
• Notice that only 400 or 500 of these points are from examinations, so regular participation is essential to forming a good foundation for your grades as well as your learning.
• MORE THAN 4 ABSENCES MAY LOWER THE FINAL GRADE FOR POOR ATTENDANCE.

• ** See the course schedule for the dates related to the following:
• No drops will be allowed without "serious and compelling reasons" and a fee.
• Students wishing to be graded with either CR or NC should make this request to the Adm & Rec office in writing or by using the web registration procedures.
• No drops will be allowed.
• Technology: The computer or a graphing calculator can be used for many problems. We will use Winplot and Microsoft Xcel.
• \$\$ Winplot is freeware and may be downloaded from Rick Parris's website or directly from this link for Winplot .
• Graphing Calculators: Graphing calculators are welcome and highly recommended.
• HP48G's will be available for students to borrow for the term through me by arrangement with the Math department. Supplementary materials will be distributed if needed.
• If you would like to purchase a graphing calculator, let me know.
• Students wishing help with any graphing calculator should plan to bring their calculator manual with them to class.
• \$\$ Use of  Office Hours and Optional "5th hour"s: Many students find  beginning calculus difficult because of weakness in their pre-calculus background skills and concepts.

• A grade of C in Math 44 might indicate this kind of weakness.
Difficulties that might have been ignored or passed over in previous courses can be a major reason for why things don't make sense now.

You may use my office hours for some additional work on these background areas either as individuals or in small groups. My office time is  also available to discuss routine problems from homework after they have been discussed in class and reality check quizzes as well as using  technology. Representatives from groups with questions about the Problem of the Week are also welcome.

I will try to organize and support additional time with small (or larger) groups of students for whom some additional work on these background areas may  improve their understanding of current coursework.
Regular use of my time outside of class should be especially useful for students having difficulty with the work and wishing to improve through a steady approach to mastering skills and concepts.
Don't be shy about asking for an appointment outside of the scheduled office hours.
