SYLLABUS (SECTION C)

Prerequisite: The prerequisite is the equivalent of a good Algebra II course in high school, although Math 211 does not require trigonometry. On the other hand, Math 211 does depend on a knowledge of logarithms and exponential functions. If you have not had any algebra for several semesters, or if you had problems in earlier algebra courses, you will need to do extra work to relearn the algebra while you are learning calculus.

Calculators: You will not be allowed to use a calculator on tests or quizzes.
I have seen too many examples of students who can solve a problem using a calculator, but do not understand the basic principles behind the solution. For example, using a calculator to compute logs and exponentials does not really help to understand the log and exponential functions that we need to use.
I do encourage you to check your homework on a graphing calculator. The TI-83 is a good choice.

Hour tests: I expect to follow the schedule for all sections, with hour exams on February 14, March 21, and April 18. Makeup tests will be allowed only if you make arrangements with me before the scheduled time of the test.

Grading: Final grades will be based on a total of 600 points. I intend to use a curve close to
90% (A), 80% (B), 65% (C), 55% (D).

Quizzes: You should expect a 20 minute quiz each Friday, worth 20 points, unless an hour exam is scheduled. The quizzes are designed to check that you are doing (and understanding) the assigned homework problems. If necessary, additional quizzes may be given in the recitation classes. I also reserve the right to give pop quizzes at any time. I do not give makeup quizzes--if you have a valid excuse for missing a quiz you should check with me.

Recommended homework problems: The homework problems are the key to your success in the course. They represent the minimum--do as many additional problems as possible. You should keep all of your homework problems in a notebook so that you can study from it for quizzes, hour tests, and the final exam. You will need to hand in only selected problems from the list of recommended problems, since the quizzes will be designed test whether or not you have been doing the assignments.
You may find it useful to buy the Study Guide for the book, which has solutions to some of the exercises.

General advice: The key ideas of calculus are not the main barrier in the course--they can be explained rather intuitively. In my experience, students have trouble either (1) because of a weak background in algebra or (2) because they fall behind. We can help you review algebra, but you are responsible for keeping up, by attending every class and doing all of the homework problems. You should expect to spend an average of two hours preparing for each hour in class.

Tutoring: The Math Assistance Center is staffed by teaching assistants. It is located in DU 326, and is open during the day, Monday through Friday. In addition, the ACCESS office runs walk-in tutoring centers in Grant North, Grant South, and Lincoln residence halls.

Handouts: The original handout for Section C can be printed from your WEB browser. You can also print the homework assignments, and the general syllabus for all sections.


HOMEWORK PROBLEMS

Recommended problems: These homework problems are the key to your success in the course. They represent the minimum--do as many additional problems as possible. You should keep all of your homework problems in a notebook so that you can study from them for the final exam.
You may find it useful to buy the Study Guide for students. It has solutions to every sixth problem.
