#### Course Policies

**Text:** Calculus, by Jon Rogowski. (2nd edition - early
transcendentals version). Textbook Options
We will cover section 4.9, chapters 5, 6, 7 and 10. If you do not have this book
from Math 141, but have some other calculus text book, it may be possible to
get by with another book. The ideas and the notation are very standard. (Assuming
the book was published after 1900.) See me if you have any questions.

**Tests:** There will be four hour tests, plus a comprehensive final exam.

**Homework:** Homework problems will be done using
webassign. Homework will be assigned every class day. It is important
to keep up with the assignments. The best way to learn math is to struggle with
lots of problems. The homework will count as much as a test (16%).

**Grades:** The 4 tests and the homework will count for 80% of the grade
and the final exam 20% of the grade. Neither tests nor the homework will be
dropped. On the homework, I will not count all of the available points, so
anyone who works faithfully at it will get a good homework grade.
Grades will be computed on a scale no more stringent than the standard university
scale of 90-100% A, 87 - 89% A-, 83 - 86 B+, 80-82% B, 77 - 79% B-, etc.
Some consideration will be given to steady improvement throughout the term;
of course consideration will also be given to a steady decline throughout
the term.

**Calculator:** You should have a graphing calculator for this course.
The Math Dept recommends the TI-84, But you are not required to have this
particular model. For example, any TI graphing calculator (the TI - 81 or 82)
or Sharp or Casio is fine. You will always be allowed to use a calculator on
tests, but you may only use a calculator that does not have symbolic algebraic
routines, so no TI-89's, Ti-92's or the like.
