Handouts


Course Policies

Text: Calculus, by Rogowski and Adams. (3rd edition - early transcendentals version). We will cover chapters eleven through seventeen, although not in the standard order. There is also a multivariable calculus only version of the book. These should be available at the Pellissippi book store.

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

Homework: Homework problems will mostly be problems from the text with a few supplementary problems. Generally assignments will be due every other class day. It is important to keep up with these assignments. The best way to learn math is to struggle with lots of problems. Not all of the available points will be counted, so anyone who works faithfully at it will get a good homework grade. The homework will count as much as a test (16%).

Webassign will not be used in this class.

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. 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.

Make Up Policies: If you miss a test due to an emergency, please notify me as soon as possible to schedule a make-up.
