***PREREQUISITE: Math 115 or permission.

• TEXTS: Required: Calculus 3rd Edition by James Stewart.(Brooks/Cole, 1995)

• Excerpts from Sensible Calculus by M. Flashman as available from Professor Flashman.
• Catalog Description: Logarithmic and exponential functions, inverse trigonometric functions, techniques of integration, infinite sequences and series, conic sections, polar coordinates.
• 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 self scheduled 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.

• 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! ***
• Writing Assignments: At the beginning of each class you will submit a brief statement (at most four sentences) describing the content from the previous classes 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." All  cooperative problem  work will be graded +(5 well done), ü(4 for OK), -(3 acceptable), or unacceptable(1) and will be used in determining the 40 points allocated for 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 be collected on September 27th, October 25th, and November 29th. On December 3rd, each student will be expected to make a 5-10 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, various individual and cooperative assignments.
• o 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.
o The work on the daily writing will be worth 30 points (based on quality of work and coverage).
o Homework performance will count for 70 points.
o Quizzes will determine 100 points
o Cooperative problem assignments and summaries will be used to determine 40 points.
o The oral quiz on the use of technology will be graded on a credit (20 points) / no credit (0) basis.
Revised- 11-19-99 The technology quiz will now be given in a reality check quiz format. [Still worth 20 points!]
o Your reading reports will be worth a total of 30 points.
o The oral presentation will be graded on a honors (10 points) / credit (7 points) / no credit (O) basis.
Revised- 11-19-99 There will not be any oral presentations. The 10 points assigned to this will be given as part of the reading reports... giving a total of 40 points for the reading reports instead of 30. I will double the highest score of the reading reports you submit.
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.
Students wishing to be graded with either CR or NC should make this request to the Adm & Rec office in writing or by using the web registration procedures.
See the fall course list for a full list of relevant days.
• Technology: The computer or a graphing calculator can be used for many problems. We will use X(PLORE),  Winplot, and Geometer's Sketchpad.  A version of X(PLORE) is available at the bookstore for  MAC based PC's along with the PC version we will use.Winplot is freeware and may be downloaded from Rick Parris's website or directly from this link for Winplot . 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 in-class 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 through me 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 during the 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 pre-calculus 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.
