MY SECTION

QUIZZES: You should expect a 20 minute quiz each Friday (20 points). I do not give makeup quizzes-if you have a valid excuse for missing a quiz you should check with me.

HONORS: The honors part of the course (Math 297) will cover additional sections in the text (6.5, 7.6, 9.2, 9.3) plus some additional related material.


DEPARTMENT SYLLABUS

CALCULUS II (4) A first course in calculus.

PRQ: MATH 229 (with at least a C)

TEXT: Calculus, 5th Ed., by James Stewart, McMaster University

COURSE OBJECTIVES: You are expected to acquire not only some computational facility with the topics introduced, but also a basic understanding of the theory involved, the need for precise language, and a greater ability to read and write using the language of mathematics.

GRADING: Your grade will be based on 650 points as follows:

    3 one-hour examinations     300 points
    Final examination           200 points 
    Homework/quizzes            150 points

FINAL EXAM: The comprehensive departmental final exam is scheduled as a mass exam on Tuesday, May 4, 4:00-5:50 P.M.

COURSE WITHDRAWAL: The last day to withdraw is Friday, October 17.

CALCULATORS: A graphing calculator with approximately the capabilities of a TI-82 or TI-83 is required for this course. Most students find a calculator helpful for exploring concepts, and for checking answers. But you are expected to be able to set up and solve problems on your own. Indeed, please note that     Graphing calculators will not be allowed on the final exam.     Scientific calculators will be permitted. Your instructor may further regulate the use of calculators on hour tests and quizzes.

SYLLABUS: The topics covered are contained in Chapters 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, and Section 10.4 of the text.
Honors sections (Math 297) are listed below in bold type.

ADVICE: The key to success in this course is to work as many problems as you can. The general rule in college is to spend at least two hours preparing for each class period. Above all, you can't afford to fall behind, since it is almost impossible to make up even a few days of lost time.


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.
Note: A * indicates additional problems assigned in 230H.
