***PREREQUISITE: Math 115 or Math code 50 or permission. See also Teresa (Tami) Matsumoto's CALCULUS REVIEW Page . .

• TEXTS: Required: Calculus, Early Transcendentals, James Stewart, 6th edition (single variable ok). [CET]
• Webassign
• Excerpts from Sensible Calculus by M. Flashman as available from this webpage and Moodle.

• Catalog Description: Limits, continuity, derivatives, integrals, and their applications.
• SCOPE: This course will introduce the theory and application of what is often described as "differential and integral calculus." These are contained primarily in Chapters 2 through 6 of Stewart. Supplementary notes and text will be provided as appropriate on the web.
• Review. I have listed several on-line sites (besides that of our text) for help with algebra. You might also check Teresa (Tami) Matsumoto's CALCULUS REVIEW Page for suggestions on how to check your readiness for calculus.

• TESTS AND ASSIGNMENTS: There will be several tests in this course. There will be an oral quiz on the chain rule, many on-line reality check quizzes, two self-scheduled midterm exams and a comprehensive final examination.
• We will use Moodle for on-line reality quizzes. You can also go directly to the HSU Moodle .
• Homework assignments are made regularly. They should be done neatly and  passed in on the due date. Homework is graded Acceptable/Unacceptable with problems to be redone. Redone work should be returned for grading promptly.
• Exams will be announced at least one week in advance.
• THE FINAL EXAMINATION WILL BE SELF SCHEDULED.
• The final exam will be comprehensive, covering the entire semester.
• MAKE-UP TESTS WILL NOT BE GIVEN EXCEPT FOR VERY SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES! It is the student's responsibility to request a makeup promptly.
• *** DAILY ATTENDANCE SHOULD BE A HABIT! ***
• Partnership Activities: Every two weeks your partneship will be asked to submit a summary of what we have covered in class. (No more than two sides of a paper.) These may be organized in any way you find useful but should not be a copy of your class notes. I will read and correct these before returning them.  Partners will receive corrected photocopies.

• Your summaries will be allowed as references at the final examination only.

Every other week (with some exceptions) partnerships will submit a response to the "problem/activity of the week." (POW)
All  cooperative problem  work will be graded  5 (well done), 4  (OK), 3 (acceptable), or 1(unacceptable) and will be used in determining the 50 points allocated for cooperative assignments.

• GRADES: Final grades will be determined taking into consideration the quality of work done in the course as evidenced primarily from the accumulation of points from tests, various individual and "team" assignments.
• Midterm exams will be worth 100 points each and the final exam will be worth 200 or 300 points.
• Homework performance will count for 130 points.
• On-line Reality quizzes will be used to determine 150 points.[I will not use the lowest 20% of these scores.]
• Cooperative problem assignments and summaries will be used to determine 50 points.
• The oral quiz on the chain rule will be graded on a credit(20 points)/no credit(0) basis.
• The final examination will be be worth either 200 or 300 points determined by the following rule:

• The final grade will use the score that maximizes the average for the term based on all possible points .
 Reality Quizzes 150 points Oral Quiz 20 points 2 Midterm Examinations 200 points Homework 130 points Cooperative work 50 points Final Examination 200/300 points Total 750/850 points

The total points available for the semester is 750 or 850. Notice that 350 of these points are not from examinations, so regular participation is essential to forming a good foundation for your grades as well as your learning.
MORE THAN 4 ABSENCES MAY LOWER THE FINAL GRADE FOR POOR ATTENDANCE.
FINAL GRADES: Though final grades for the course are subject to my discretion, I will use the following overall percentages based on the total number of points for your work to determine the broader range of grades for the course.
A
85-100% ;   70- 84% ;  C  60- 69% ;  D  50- 59%  ;  F   0- 49%

Students with Disabilities: Persons who wish to request disability-related accommodations should contact the Student Disability Resource Center in House 71, 826-4678 (voice) or 826-5392 (TDD). Some accommodations may take up to several weeks to arrange. http://www.humboldt.edu/disability/
Add/Drop policy: ** See the University rules and dates related to the following:
• No drops will be allowed without "serious and compelling reasons" and a fee after this date.
• No drops allowed after this date.
• Students wishing to be graded with either CR or NC should make this request  using the web registration procedures.
Students are responsible for knowing the University policy, procedures, and schedule for dropping or adding classes.
Emergency evacuation: Please review the evacuation plan for the classroom (posted on the orange signs) , and review http://studentaffairs.humboldt.edu/emergencyops/campus_emergency_preparedness.php for information on campus Emergency Procedures. PLEASE, take a moment to download and read this page carefully. Although it may seem as a waste of time to you right now, it may save your life one day and you will not have time to read it when you really need it.
During an emergency, information can be found campus conditions at: 826-INFO or http://www.humboldt.edu/emergency
Attendance and disruptive behavior: Students are responsible for knowing policy regarding attendance and disruptive behavior: http://studentaffairs.humboldt.edu/judicial/attendance_behavior.php

• Technology: The computer or a graphing calculator can be used for many problems.We will use Winplot, Microsoft Xcel, and Wolfram|Alpha.
• Winplot is freeware and may be downloaded from Rick Parris's website or directly from this link for Winplot .
• This software is small  can be used on any Windows PC on campus.
• Online introductions and help for Winplot is available.
• Graphing Calculators: Though much of our work this semester will be using the computer,
graphing calculators are welcome and highly recommended.
• The HP48G, HP 49 and the TI-89 and 92 are particularly useful though most graphing calculators will be able to do much of the work.
• A limited number of graphing calculators are available for students to borrow for the term through the Math department.
• Should you decide to purchase a graphing calculator, see me if you would like my advise.
• Students wishing help with any graphing calculator should plan to bring their calculator manual with them to class.
• I do not use a hand-held graphing calculator during class time.
• Lap top computers are welcome in class at tools. (Not for other purposes.) They will not be allowed on exams.
• Only handheld calculators will be allowed on exams.
• I offer help to you with your own technology when possible during office hours or by appointment (not in class).
• Use of Office Hours and Optional "5th hour"s: Many students find beginning calculus difficult because of weakness in their pre-calculus background skills and concepts. A grade of C in Math 115 (Algebra and Elementary Functions) might indicate this kind of weakness. Difficulties that might have been ignored or passed over in previous courses can be a major reason for why things don't make sense now.
• You may use my office hours for some additional work on these background areas either as individuals or in small groups. My office time is also available to discuss routine problems from homework after they have been discussed in class and reality check quizzes as well as using technology. Representatives from groups with questions about the Problem of the Week are also welcome.
• I will try to organize and support additional time with small (or larger) groups of students for whom some additional work on these background areas may improve their understanding of current coursework.
• Later in the semester optional hours will be available to discuss routine problems from homework and reality check quizzes as well as using technology.
• Regular use of my time outside of class should be especially useful for students having difficulty with the work and wishing to improve through a steady approach to mastering skills and concepts.
• Don't be shy about asking for an appointment outside of the scheduled office hours.
