PREREQUISITES: A grade of C or better in Math 180. This will be strictly enforced. Students who do not satisfy the prerequisite will be dropped from the course.

GRADING: Begining in week 2, there will be quizes every Tuesday except in weeks following a midterm.

Grades will be based on:

1. Two Hour Exams (100 points each) and the Final Exam (200 points).
2. Problems/Quizes (100 points).

The Midterm Exams will be Friday February 20 and Friday April 9. The Final Exam will be Thursday May 6 at 3:30 in Lecture Center D2.

READING: You are expected to complete the assigned reading in the text BEFORE each class. You should do a few problems on the new material. This will help you learn more during the class.

CALCULATOR: Use of a graphing calculator will be an integral part of the course. Instructors will be using the TI-82. Any graphing calculator you now own should be adequate. A program (for TI calculators) for numerical integration is available on the web. Other programs are also available on the web.

HOMEWORK: Problems will be collected on the due date and returned to you in your discussion class. Normally late homework will not be accepted. To receive credit for the homework, you must print the following clearly at the top of your homework papers and in this order:

Your discussion class hour.
Your name.
The due date.

Here are the homework assignments for the semester.

You are encouraged to discuss homework problems with your fellow students and to work together. Working in groups makes the explanations of approaches and solutions a part of the process and helps you learn. Your goal is to find solutions and to communicate your work in a convincing manner.
