College Algebra (MAC 1105) or equivalent with minimum grade of C. If you were enrolled conditionally, and did not complete the prerequisite, you will be dropped from the class.

 

Course Description and Objectives:

This is a descriptive and intuitive introduction to the methods and applications of differential and integral calculus, primarily for social science and business administration majors. It will cover topics selected from Chapters 1-7 and Chapter 9.

 

Homework:

Homework problems will be assigned for each section. However, they will not be handed-in or graded. It is extremely important for students to do homework problems timely since questions for quizzes and exams are taken from homework problems with only minor modifications.

 

 

Exams and Quizzes:

Midterm 1

Wednesday, June 16, 10:30-11:35 am in class. Closed book exam.

Midterm 2

There will be five biweekly quizzes. All the quizzes and exams are given in class and closed books and notes. No make-up quizzes will be given. If you miss a quiz, you will receive zero on the quiz. However, the lowest quiz will be dropped. There will be no make-up for any midterm exam under any circumstances. If you miss a midterm exam for any reason, the weight of this exam will be shifted to the final exam. Make-up final exam will be given only under exceptional circumstance, and written, verifiable excuses must be provided.

 

Calculators:

Some of the suggested homework problems may require use of a calculator. Graphing calculators will be not permitted for quizzes or exams. You must show your work to receive credit on quizzes and exams (including final exam).

 

Grading:

Grading will be based on the following weighting:

20% Quizzes

25% Midterm 1

25% Midterm 2

30% Final exam

The grading scale will be A: 90-100%, A-: 87-89%, B+: 83-86%, B: 80-82%, B-: 77-79%, C+: 73-76%, C: 70-72%, C-: 67-69%, D: 60-66%, F: 0-59%.

 

Guide to Success:

Success in Methods of Calculus generally requires both adequate preparation and a willingness to work hard, and attend class regularly. Students should expect to spend a lot of time outside of class working on homework problems. Students are encouraged to read the section of the day before class, do the homework problems timely, and ask questions in class. If students have any questions about homework or course material, please do not hesitate to see me during my office hours or to seek help from tutoring service provided by the mathematics department.

 

Honor Code:

Students at Florida Atlantic University are expected to maintain the highest ethical standards. Academic dishonesty, including cheating and plagiarism, is considered a serious breach of these ethical standards, because it interferes with the University mission to provide a high quality education in which no student enjoys an unfair advantage over any other. Academic dishonesty is also destructive of the University community, which is grounded in a system of mutual trust and places high values on personal integrity and individual responsibility. Harsh penalties are associated with academic dishonesty. For more information, see http://www.fau.edu/regulations/chapter4/4.001_Honor_Code.pdf.
