Calculus - Concepts & Contexts, 3rd edition,
Thomson, Belmont, 2005
- Outline: We will cover Chapter 5 almost completely, great parts of Chapter 6,
some parts of Chapter 7 depending on the available time, and Section 8.1.
Moreover, we will cover the appendices F, G, and H. In comparison to the preceding courses,
there will be more emphasis on concepts and proofs and less emphasis on computation.
Course materials will be posted on Blackboard.
- Test 1: Tue, May 1, 6:00 pm, 525 Old Chemistry
- Test 2: Tue, May 22, 6:00 pm, 525 Old Chemistry
- Final: Wed, June 6, 4:30 pm, 525 Old Chemistry
- Examination criteria: The final grade will be computed using the following weights.
- Attendance: 5 percent
- Daily on-line homework: 15 percent
- Weekly graded homework: 15 percent
- Test 1: 20 percent
- Test 2: 20 percent
- Final Exam: 25 percent
- A: 90 percent (or better)
- B: 75 percent (or better)
- C: 65 percent (or better)
- D: 55 percent (or better)
- Policies: There will be two types of homework: First, a daily homework assignment, which is posted
on Blackboard. Out of this assignment, one or two questions have to be completed
on-line on Blackboard before the start of the next lecture. Second, there will be a weekly
graded homework assignment, which usually will consist of more difficult and more
theoretical questions than the on-line homework. On-line homework cannot be made up, but your four
lowest on-line homework grades will be dropped. Also, you can miss four classes without
affecting your attendance score. The final exam will be comprehensive.
Calculators, textbooks, or notes may not be used during quizzes or tests.
- Tutoring: Mathematics tutors are available at no charge in the
Mathematics Learning Center.
