***PREREQUISITES: Calculus I

• TEXTS: Required:
Calculus, 2/e Robert T. Smith, Millersville University Roland B. Minton, Roanoke College
Calculus
, CD, by Ed Burger-  Thinkwell Publishing.(ISBN 1931381992)
Excerpts from Sensible Calculus by M. Flashman as available on the web from Professor Flashman.
• Calculus: An Interactive Text
 (ISBN 007-239848-5) This browser-based electronic supplement provides access to the entire Calculus text in an interactive format. Features include over 200 text-specific JAVA applets and over 400 algorithmically-generated practice problems, designed to demonstrate key concepts and examples from the text. The electronic student solutions manual is integrated for full comprehension of exercises.
Note that with the purchase of your textbook, you have access to the Calculus Online Learning Center, which helps students learn calculus with automatically graded practice quizzes, additional explanations of difficult topics and guides for TI calculators.  Live tutorial assistance is also available.

Catalog Description:
• Calculus at Occidental:
Calculus differs in some respects from the traditional courses offered at some secondary schools and most other colleges or universities. Occidental’s program is based on scientific modeling, makes regular use of computers, and requires interpretation as well as computation. A variety of courses comprise this program, accommodating different levels of preparation. The core content is described below as Calculus 1 and 2. Actual courses suited to different levels of preparation are listed under each description.

• CALCULUS 1: SCIENTIFIC MODELING AND DIFFERENTIAL CALCULUS.

Many mathematical models in the natural and social sciences take the form of systems of differential equations. This introduction to the calculus is organized around the construction and analysis of these models, focusing on the mathematical questions they raise. Models are drawn from biology, economics, and physics. The important elementary functions of analysis arise as solutions of these models in special cases.

The mathematical theme of the course is local linearity. Topics include the definition of the derivative, rules for computing derivatives, Euler’s Method, Newton’s Method, Taylor polynomials, error analysis, optimization, and an introduction to the differential calculus of functions of two variables.

CALCULUS 2: SCIENTIFIC MODELING AND INTEGRAL CALCULUS.

This course continues the study of the calculus through scientific modeling. While Calculus 1 is concerned with local changes in a function, Calculus 2 focuses on accumulated changes. Models solved by accumulation functions lead to the definition of the integral and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.

Additional topics include numerical and analytic techniques of integration, trigonometric functions and dynamical systems modeling periodic or quasiperiodic phenomena, local approximation of functions by Taylor polynomials and Taylor series, and approximation of periodic functions on an interval by trigonometric polynomials and Fourier series.

• Supplementary notes and text will be provided as appropriate on the web.
• \$\$ Try the Backgrounds Check Quiz on Blackboard.
If you don't do well on the on-line backgrounds assessment quiz , see me soon!

• TESTS AND ASSIGNMENTS: There will be several tests in this course. There will be 2 Gateway Examsmany on-line reality check quizzes, two midterm exams and a comprehensive final examination.
• Gateway Exams:  You must pass two Gateway exams with a score of 9/10.  These exams will test basic skills and concepts needed for the course, and can be taken as many times as needed (subject to target dates below, extension permission required after the target date).  One successful Gateway test will count as one on-line quiz.
• Gateway Target Dates:
* Derivatives.  February 16th. [Changed -2-3]
* Integration  [Was previously Differerential Equations] Last day of classes. [7/10 is passing- so 7/10 will give 10 points for the quiz points! I will count lower scores as quiz scores.]

• We will use Blackboard for on-line reality quizzes. Click here for some information on how to use Blackboard.
• You can also go directly to the Oxy Blackboard .
•  Homework assignments are made regularly. They should be done neatly.  Problems from the assignments will be discussed in class.
• Exams will be announced at least one week in advance.
• THE FINAL EXAMINATION WILL BE SELF SCHEDULED with at least two alternate offerings.
• 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! ***
• 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 may be asked to respond to some relevant questions on  Blackboard  under the CD report title. These questions may be related to the solution of a specific problem, the development of a concept, or the organization of a technique as presented on the CD.  Each CD tutorial question will add 5 points to your CD Tutorial point total. CD Tutorial work will be used in determining the 50 course points.
• Change: CD Reports were discontinued- the 50 points for this work is reallocated to homework.
• Partnership Activities: Every three 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. Partners will receive corrected photocopies.

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

Every week (with some exceptions) partners will submit a response to the "problem/ lab activity of the week."
All  cooperative problem  work will be graded 5 well done, 4 for OK,  3 acceptable, or 2 or 1 unacceptable and 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, various individual and "team" assignments.
• Midterm exams will be worth 100 points each and the final exam will be worth 200 or 300 points.
• Homework performance will count for 100 points. Changed: Now 150 points.
• On-line Reality quizzes will be used to determine 150 points.[I will not use the lowest 20% of these scores.]
• Cooperative problem assignments (POW's and labs) and summaries will be used to determine 100 points.
• The CD tutorial responses will be used to determine 50 points. [Changed: now 0.]
• 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 .
 Reality Quizzes 150 points 2 Midterm Examinations 200 points Homework 150 points CD Tutorials - discontinued 0 points Cooperative work(Labs/POW's + Summaries) 100 points Final Examination 200/300 points Total 800/900 points
The total points available for the semester is 800 or 900.Notice that only 400 or 500 of these points are from examinations, so regular participation with reality quizzes and the CD tutorals 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.
In my experience students who are actively engaged in learning and participating regularly in a variety of activities will learn and understand more and retain more of what they learn. Each component of the course allows you a different way to interact with the material.

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

 Last Day to Drop Courses CR/NC Forms Due Withdrawal Period Begins Last Day to Withdraw From Class

• Technology: The computer or a graphing calculator can be used for many problems.
• We will use Winplot. Winplot is freeware and may be downloaded from Rick Parris 's website or directly from one of these links for Winplot1 or Winplot2 . This software is small enough to fit on a 3.5" disc and can be used on any Windows PC on campus. You can find introductions to Winplot on the web.
• Students wishing help with any graphing calculator should plan to bring their calculator manual with them to class.
• Graphing Calculators: Though much of our work this semester will be using the computer, graphing calculators are welcome and highly recommended. The HP48G, HP 49 and the TI-89 and 92 are particularly useful though most graphing calculators will be able to do much of the work. If you would like to purchase one or have one already, let me know. Students wishing help with any graphing calculator should plan to bring their calculator manual with them. I will try to help you with your own technology when possible during office hours or by appointment (not in class).
• Use of Office Hours and Optional "5th hour"s: Many students find the second semester calculus difficult because of weakness in their pre-calculus and first semester background skills and concepts. 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.
• Tentatively Karl McMurtry has been assigned to do AMP (Academic Mastery Program) workshops for this class.  Karl will sit in on the class, write worksheets on the course material, and hold weekly workshops in which he will help you through the worksheets.
• Don't be shy about asking for an appointment outside of the scheduled office hours.

Bonus Essay question for final:
Suppose P(t) is a positive continuous function on [a,b] that gives the velocity at time t of an object moving on a straight line. Explain using the mean value theorem why there is some number c between a and b where P(c) = 1/(b-a) òx=a x=b  P(x) dx.
Interpret this equation with either
(i) a discussion of the  velocity and position of the object with the position function given by a definite integral from time x=a to time x=t or
(ii) a discussion of the area under the graph of Y=P(x) above the X-axis from X=a to X=b and the area of a rectangle with height P(c) and width (b-a).
