***PREREQUISITE: Math 115 or Math code 50 or permission.

• TEXTS: Required: Calculus 3rd Edition by James Stewart.(Brooks/Cole, 1995)

• Excerpts from Sensible Calculus by M. Flashman as available from Professor Flashman.
Optional: How to Ace Calculus : The Streetwise Guide by Joel Hass, Abigail Thompson, Colin Conrad Adams. (W.H. Freeman, 1998)
• SCOPE: This course will deal with the theory and application of what is often described as "differential and integral calculus." These are contained primarily in Chapters 1 through 5 of Stewart. Supplementary notes and text will be provided as appropriate.
• TESTS AND ASSIGNMENTS: There will be several tests in this course. There will be an oral quiz on the chain rule, several reality check quizzes, two self-scheduled midterm exams, and two special "team" assignments which I will grade (numerically).
• Homework assignments are made regularly and should be passed in on the due date. Homework is graded Acceptable/Unacceptable with problems to be redone. Redone work should be returned for grading promptly.
• Exams will be announced at least one week in advance.
• THE FINAL EXAMINATION WILL BE 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! ***
• Writing Assignments: At the beginning of each class you will submit a brief statement (at most four sentences) describing the content from the previous classes and any topics you would like to discuss further either in class or individually. I will read these and return them the next class.
• Team Activities: Every two weeks your team 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. Team participants will receive corrected photocopies.

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

On alternate weeks teams will submit a response to the "problem/activity of the week." All this cooperative work will be graded +(5 well done), ü(4 for OK), -(3 acceptable), or unacceptable(1) and will be used in determining the 40 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, various individual and "team" assignments.
• Midterm exams will be worth 100 points each, the team assignments will be worth 50 points each, and the final exam will be worth 200 points.
• The work on the daily writing will be worth 30 points (based on quality of work and coverage).
• Homework performance will count for 60 points.
• Quizzes will determine 100 points.
• Cooperative problem assignments and summaries will be used to determine 40 points.
• The oral quiz on the chain rule will be graded on a credit(20 points)/no credit(0) basis.
The total points available for the semester is 750. Notice that only 400 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 3 ABSENCES MAY LOWER THE FINAL GRADE FOR POOR ATTENDANCE.

** See the course schedule for the dates related to the following:

• After Feb. 15th, 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 no later than March 16th.
• After April 16th, no drops will be allowed.
• Technology: The computer or a graphing calculator will be used for many problems. We will use X(PLORE), a powerful and friendly system designed to help learn calculus with the computer and Geometer's Sketchpad. You will need one 3 1/2" disc on which you can  keep your own work. A version of X(PLORE) is available at the bookstore for  MAC based PC's along with the PC version we will use.Students wishing help with any graphing calculator should plan to bring their calculator manual with them to class.
• Graphing Calculators: Graphing calculators are welcome and highly recommended. We will use the HP48G for some in-class work though most graphing calculators will be able to do much of this work. HP48G's will be available for students to borrow for the term by arrangement with the Math department. Supplementary materials will be distributed if needed. If you would like to purchase one or have one already, let me know. I will try to help you with your own technology during the optional "5th hour"s, or by appointment (not in class).
• Optional "5th hour"s: Many students find beginning calculus difficult because of weakness in their pre-calculus background skills and concept. A grade of C in Math 115 (Algebra and Elementary Functions) 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. I will 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.

• Later in the semester optional hours will be available to discuss routine problems from homework and reality check quizzes as well as using technology. These sessions should be especially useful for students having difficulty with the work and wishing to improve through a steady approach to mastering skills and concepts.
