   TECHNOLOGY: The TI-83/TI-83+/84/84+ is required and should be used for graphing
   functions and learning about and investigating calculus.

   1.         Attend and participate in classroom discussions and activities.
   2.         Complete all assigned readings and problem sets on time. Assignments
              should be neat, accurate, and complete.
   3.         Attendance is required for this class. If absent from class, you are responsible
              for any work that is missed and assigned. The tests and final exams will
              incorporate components of the text readings, handouts, problem sets, and
              classroom activities.

Extra Help/tutoring is available in 129A Bannow – the math center. You may sign up for
extra help there.

       The Final Exam will count 33%.
       The remaining 67% of your grade will be determined by tests, quizzes, take
        home/assigned problems sets, and in class graded assignments.
       Unexcused absences from tests, quizzes and/or graded assignments will be
        averaged in as a 0. Makeup exams are provided for *excused absences only.

**Excused absences are absences accompanied by a note from a doctor, the health
center ( an authorized medical release form) or the academic dean.

                                          Please note:

    There will be times when we may not cover the indicated sections on the dates
     outlined above. We can only cover the material at a pace that is comfortable for
     the class. However, we will cover all the topics outlined in the syllabus so if it is
     necessary, we may have to lose some designated “review” days. I will do my
     best to preserve them!
    There will be additional opportunities to show off what you know and have
     learned. Graded assignments, quizzes and problem sets will be added to the
     course work so that your grade will be a better reflection of your knowledge and
     not simply an average of a few test grades.
    I will arrange to meet with you if you need any extra help. This may be before
     class, after class or on a different day. All I ask is that you give me enough notice
     about when you would like to meet. Email and/or calling me works best.
    I will work with the office of student support services to provide the appropriate
     accommodations for students with documented disabilities.
    This semester contains material that may be conceptually more difficult than first
     semester. Be responsible, attentive in class and diligent about keeping up with all
     of the assignments. I do not assign busy work but rather problems that are critical
     for your success in the course.
    Attendance is key to your success in this course.
Remember, Calculus is fun!!!!
