Fall, 1997 COURSE INFORMATION M.FLASHMAN
MATH 110 : CALCULUS II 9:009:50 A.M. MTWF
OFFICE: Library 48 PHONE:8264950
Office Hours (Tent.): M F 10:1511:20 AND BY APPOINTMENT!
EMAIL: flashman@axe.humboldt.edu

***PREREQUISITE: Math 109 or permission.
 TEXTS: Calculus 3rd Edition by James Stewart.
Excerpts from Sensible
Calculus by M. Flashman as available from Professor
Flashman.
**Recommended Available from Professor Flashman: How
Children Fail by
John Holt and How to Study Calculus by Joseph Mazur.
 SCOPE: This course will deal with a continuation of the
theory and
application of what is often described as "integral calculus"
as well as
the calculus of infinite series. These are contained primarily
in
Chapters 6 through 10 of Stewart. Supplementary notes and text
will be
provided as appropriate.
 TESTS AND ASSIGNMENTS: There will be several tests in this
course. There
will be an oral quiz on the use of technology, several reality
check
quizzes and cooperative problem assignments, two selfscheduled
midterm
exams, and two special "team" assignments which I will grade
(numerically).
Homework assignments are made regularly and should be
passed in on the due date. Work 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.
 BECAUSE OF THE INTENSE NATURE OF THIS COURSE,
MAKEUP 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!
***
 Writing Assignments: At the beginning of each class you
will submit a
brief statement (at most four sentences) describing the content
from
previous class and any topics you would like to discuss further
either in
class or individually. I will read these and return them the
next class.

Team Activities: Every two weeks your team 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. Team participants will receive corrected
photocopies.
Your
summaries will be allowed as references at the final
examination only.
On alternate weeks teams will submit a response to the
"problem/activity
of the week." These will be graded +, x (for OK), , or
unacceptable and
will be used in determining the 140 points allocated for
quizzes and
cooperative assignments.

The Reading Assignment: Each student is expected to read at
least 3 short
notes or articles from periodicals or the world wide web on
some
application of the calculus. A short report / synopsis of
these readings
and any reactions you have to them will collected on March 7th,
April
11th, and again on May 2nd. On Wednesday and/or Friday, May
7th/9th, each
student will be expected to make a 510 minute oral
presentation based on
one of these readings. You may propose an alternative to the
oral
presentation.
 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 and graded "team"
assignments.
 Midterm
exams will be worth 100 points each, the team assignments will
be worth 50
points each, and the final exam will be worth 200 points.
 The work on the
daily writing and summaries will be worth 40 points (based on
quality of
work and coverage).
 Your reading reports will be worth 30 points.
 The oral presentation will be graded on a honors(10
points)/credit(7
points)/no credit(0) basis.
 Homework performance will count for 60 points.
 Quizzes and cooperative problem assignments will be used to
determine 140 points.
 The oral quiz on the use of technology will be
graded on a credit(20 points)/no credit(0) basis.
The total points available for the semester is 800. Notice that
only 400 of these points
are from examinations, so regular participation is essential to
forming a
good foundation for your grades as well as your learning.
MORE THAN 3 ABSENCES MAY LOWER THE FINAL GRADE FOR POOR
ATTENDANCE.
See the course schedule for the dates related to the following:
 no drops will be allowed without "serious
and compelling reasons" and a fee.
 no drops will be allowed.
li>Students wishing to be graded with either CR or NC should
make this request through
the recording office.
See the Spring course list for a full list of relevant
days.

TECHNOLOGY: The computer or a graphing calculator may be used
for many
problems. For this purpose, X(PLORE) will be sufficient.
Students wishing
help with any graphing calculator should plan to bring their
calculator
manual with them to class.

Graphing Calculators: Graphing calculators are welcome and
highly recommended. We will use the HP48G for some inclass work
though most graphing calculators will be able to do much of this
work. HP48G's will be available for students to borrow for the
term by arrangement with the Math department. Supplementary
materials will be distributed if needed. If you would like to
purchase one or have one already, let me know. I will try to help
you with your own technology when possible during office hours,
optional "5th hour"s, or by appointment (not in class).
 Optional "5th hour"s: Many students find the second
semester of calculus difficult because of weakness in their
Calculus I and precalculus background skills and concept. A
grade of C in Math 109 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. I will 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
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. These sessions should
be especially useful for students having difficulty with the work
and wishing to improve through a steady approach to mastering
skills and concepts.
