Text: Calculus, 2nd Edition, by Smith and
Prerequisite Policy: Students must have completed Math 106 with a grade of C or better before taking Math 107. Any students who do not meet this requirement will be dropped from the course.
Essential Studies/Integrative Studies: Math 107 is designated as an Essential Studies course for Area B -- Mathematics and Statistics. Math 107 is also designated as an Integrative Studies course.
Advanced Placement Program: If this is the first college mathematics course that you have attempted, then you may be eligible for 5 hours of free credit for Math 106, provided you get a grade of C, P or better in Math 107 this semester. To be considered for this credit, you should register with the Department of Mathematics, 203 Avery Hall by January 28, 2005.
Calculator: You are required to have a graphing calculator for this course. The TI-85 and TI-86 are recommended. Calculators that do symbolic computations (e.g., TI-89 and TI-92) will not be permitted on exams. Also, no cell phones will be allowed on exams.
Scheduling: The reverse side of this syllabus includes a tentative schedule of assignments and exams. These details are presented as a guide. Your instructor may change the dates for each assignment and/or exam, modify the exercise list, and/or add assignments.
Exercises: You are expected to work the assigned exercises after the corresponding material is presented in class, and BEFORE the next class meeting (lecture or recitation).
Projects and Other Assignments: This course will include a group project. Your instructor will decide on the specific requirements for your project report. There may also be other graded assignments (such as weekly quizzes) given at the discretion of your instructor.
Gateway Exam: This exam consists of 6 questions in which you are asked to carry out calculations without using calculators, notes, or tables. You must get at least 5 questions completely right to pass with full credit. If you are not satisfied with your performance on the Gateway Exam when it is first administered, you can go to the Mathlab (18 Avery Hall) or the Arts and Sciences College Testing Center (Burnett 127) for a retake (picture ID required). The final deadline for passing the Gateway is April 8, 2005.
Math Resource Center: Students in Math 107 are encouraged to use the Mathematics Resource Center (MRC) in Avery 13B if they have questions related to this course, or as a place to meet and discuss group projects. The hours for the MRC are 12:30-8:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 12:30-2:30 p.m. on Friday, and 1:00-5:00 p.m. on Sunday.
Final Exam Policy:
Students are expected to arrange their personal and work schedule to allow them
to take the final exam at the scheduled time. Students who have conflicting
exam schedules may be allowed to take an alternate final, which is always given
after the regularly scheduled final. Students who have a legitimate
conflict should see Lori Mueller in Avery Hall 210 by Friday, April 22nd. No
student will be allowed to take the final exam early. The final exam for this
course is Monday, May 2nd, 6-8 pm.
Departmental grading appeals policy: Students who believe their academic evaluation has been prejudiced or capricious have recourse for appeals to (in order) the instructor, the departmental chair, the departmental appeals committee, and the college appeals committee.
