SOFTWARE AND TEXT

The software to be used is MAPLE and the text is CALCULUS by Varberg and Purcell.

COURSE GOAL AND CONTENT

The goal of the course is to provide the student with an opportunity to learn introductory integral calculus and to begin to develop an appreciation of its applications. This is facilitated through the study of Chapters 5, 6, 7 and 8 of the text. Note that Sections 6.3, 7.8, 8.2 and 8.5 will not be covered and Section 8.3 receive only very light coverage in class.

HOMEWORK

Suggested practice problems will be given for each section covered. Homework problems are not usually handed in. Each student must take personal responsibility for doing sufficient study and practice.

EVALUATION

There will be five quizzes each worth 50 points; the best four of the five will count toward the course grade. Thus 200 points can be earned for quizzes. These 25-minute quizzes are tentatively scheduled on

Friday, March 26,

Friday, April 2,

Tuesday, April 13,

Friday, April 30.

For quizzes, an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet with handwritten notes on one side may be used - no photographic copies of material are allowed. Be forewarned that lab-related questions may be included on quizzes. Because one quiz grade is dropped, there should be no need for any makeup quizzes.

There will be four lab reports, each worth 25 points. Thus 100 points can be earned for labs. A missed lab cannot be made up.

There will be a final exam worth 100 points. This final will be given during the regular class period on May 6. (Don't even bother to think about asking to take the final early.)

Point ranges for grades are given approximately by

A: 400 - 360 B: 359 - 320 C: 319 - 270

Most likely there will be little cause to appeal a grade. However if there is an appeal of a quiz or lab grade, it must be made within one week of the day the paper is available for pickup - after 4:00 pm on the last day of the appeal period the "books" are closed on that event. Note that the appeal period starts on the day a paper is available, not on the day it is actually picked up.

LABS

There will be a separate handout dealing with lab procedures. However the following should be noted. Lab reports are to be done in teams of two students. In particular, single author or three author lab reports will not be graded unless prior approval for the``odd" group has been obtained from the professor or the IA.
