Fall 2017

- We will use Chapters 1-5 of the text.

- Online homework will be done through WebAssign; you can access this through
TritonEd, under
**Tools**. - The "paper-and-pen" homework assignments will be announced Here. These assignments will not be turned in and will not be graded; however, if you seek help from the instructor or TAs, they will often do these problems. Also, exam questions often look like textbook questions.
- No homework assignment scores will be dropped at the end of the quarter.

You can also get help with the textbook homework in the Calculus Tutoring Lab. A Student Solutions Manual (available in the Bookstore) has complete solutions for odd-numbered problems in the text.

- Help with using TI graphing calculators is available in the Calculus Tutoring Lab.
**The use of electronic devices will not be permitted during exams.**

- You may bring
**ONE**8.5 x 11 inch sheet of*handwritten*notes. You may use both sides. (No photocopies, other notes or books will be allowed!) *No calculators will be allowed during the examinations.*

- It is your responsibility to ensure that you do not have a schedule conflict
involving the final examination.
*You should not enroll in this class if you cannot sit for the final examination at its scheduled time.* - You must pass the final exam ( >59% ) in order to pass the class. (The actual required percentage may be lowered, depending on overall class performance.)

**Method 1:**20% Homework, 20% Midterm Exam I, 20% Midterm Exam II, 40% Final Exam**Method 2:**20% Homework, 20% Best Midterm Exam, 60% Final Exam

Your grade will be computed using both methods and then the better grade will be used.

After your weighted average is calculated, letter grades will be assigned based on the standard grading scale:

A+ |
A |
A- |
B+ |
B |
B- |
C+ |
C |
C- |
F |

99 |
93 |
90 |
87 |
83 |
80 |
77 |
73 |
70 |
<70 |

We may adjust the scale to be more lenient, but we guarantee that the grade corresponding to a given percentage will not be lower than specified by the above scale.

Please notice that outside factors, including the need for a certain grade for admission/retention in any academic program, scholarship or transfer credit, graduation requirements or personal desire for a specific grade DO NOT appear in the above calculations, and thus are not considered in any way in the determination of your course grade. Effort, improvement, class attendance and participation will all dramatically improve your grade in the course in that they will allow you to do well on exams, and the final exam. They will NOT, however, actively participate in the calculation of your course grade.
