Calculus, by Elgin H. Jonston and Jerold C. Mathews; Addison Wesley, 2002.
Problems are assigned from each section of the book. These problems will not be collected or graded, but you will need to do them in order to learn.
Matlab Problems:
Four Matlab Problems are assigned, and will be collected and graded. General instructions are at Check the schedule below for the specific excercises that we will do.
Good Problems:
Four Good Problems are assigned, and will be collected and graded. This is a homework problem that will be graded half on content and half on presentation. The idea is to practice writing mathematics regularly but in small pieces.
There will be two mid-term tests, in class. Calculators are not permitted.
Final Exam:
The final exam is on Thursday 12 June at 2:30pm in our regular classroom.
Each Matlab Problem is worth 1 unit, each Good Problem is worth 2 units, each test is worth 5 units, and the final is worth 10 units. Before computing your average, your lowest 2 units will be dropped. Then your average is computed and a 90% guarantees you at least an A-, 80% a B-, 70% a C-, and 60% a D-.
Missed or Late work:
Late Good Problems and Matlab Problems are penalized 5% for each 24 hour period or part thereof. (If you finish them over a weekend, indicate when you finished them.) A missed test without advanced approval will result in at least a 10% penalty, and may result in a 0 on that test.
Attendance is assumed but is not counted in your grade. It is your responsibility to find out any announcements made in class.
Academic Dishonesty:
You are strongly encouraged to work together on the homework. You can work together on the Good Problems and Matlab Problems, but you must acknowledge any help that you receive. The tests and final exam must be your own work, and without the aid of calculators or notes. Dishonesty will result in a zero on that work, and possible failure in the class and a report to the university judiciaries.
Supplemental Instruction:
SI "provides free, out-of-class study sessions led by an Ohio University undergraduate student who has already taken the course. Used throughout the U.S. and the world, the SI program has proven highly successful in increasing student achievement and retention." Check with the academic advancement center for more information and the schedule.
Special Needs:
If you have specific physical, psychiatric, or learning disabilities and require accommodations, please let me know as soon as possible so that your learning needs may be appropriately met.
