||MTWRF 10:20 -- 11:35 in ILB 370 for section 2; MTWR
5:30 p.m. -- 7:05 p.m. for section 51
||The text for the course is Calculus Concepts and
Contexts by James Stewart.
||Most of the sections in Chapters 10, 11, 12 and a
little of 13 as time permits.
||MA 126 (Calculus II) is the prequisite.
||There will be two in-class tests, each counting as
25% of the course grade. The final exam (Wednesday, August 4, 10:30 AM -- 12:30 PM) will
be cumulative, and will count as 35% of the course grade. The remaining 15% of the grade
will be derived from weekly quizzes, homework assignments, and lab assignments. There are
no make-up tests or quizzes. Late homework and lab assignments can be accepted only with a
compelling hard-luck story. An appropriate deduction will be made degree of tardiness. If
you miss a test, a grade for that test will be extrapolated from the part of the final
exam which covers the missed test. (Note: You cannot choose to miss a test after you have
received the test in class.) Unless otherwise announced, the cut-off points for the letter
grades A, B, C and D are 90%, 80%, 70% and 60%, respectively.
||If you are auditing the class, you will receive a
grade of UA (unsatisfactory audit) if, in the judgement of the instructor, you do not
consistently attend class.
||Any student with a qualified handicap which requires
accommodations should talk with the instructor after class so that arrangements can be
made. A student must verify that he/she has a qualified handicap through the Special
Student Services Office (460-7212).
