Daniel
D. Benice, *Calculus and Its Applications*
Second Edition, Houghton Mifflin Company,

1997.

Prerequisites:

Math 1111 (College Algebra) or
Math 1113 (Precalculus)

Requirements
and Grading:

¨ Exams:
There will be four 1 hour tests worth 100 points each:

Test
1: Wednesday, September 11

Test
2: Monday, October 7

Test
3: Monday, October 28

Test
4: Wednesday, November 20

¨ Final Exam: There
will be one comprehensive final exam worth 200 points:

Section
1: Wednesday, December 11, 8-10 a.m.

Section
2: Friday, December 13, 8-10 a.m.

¨ Quizzes: There
will be a total of ten 10 minute unannounced pop-quizzes of which the two
lowest scores will be dropped. The remaining quizzes will be averaged,
converted to a 100 point basis and counted as a fifth test.

¨ Homework: This
is an important part of the course. There will be no homework assignments to be
handed in. However, at the end of most classes you will be given a list of
problems these are the minimum that you should work. Some of these problems
will be gone over in the next class session, and the quizzes will be very
similar to assigned homework problems. Practice is important. You should make
sure to set aside some time every class day to work problems.

¨ Grading: My
grading scale is straightforward. There are a total of 700 possible points.
Your total number of points will be calculated and converted to a percentage.
The grading scale is listed below with the total points required in
parenthesis:

A(excellent) = 90-100% (630 700 points)

B(good) = 80-89% (560 623 points)

C(adequate) = 70-79% (490 553 points)

D(poor) = 60-69% (420 483 points)

F(dismal) = 59% and below
(413 points or below)

Make-ups:

No
make-up quizzes will be given. Except in extreme circumstances, any missed exam
must be

made
up within one week of the day the exam was given. There must be a reasonable
excuse for

missing
the exam and the excuse must be in writing.

Attendance
Policy:

There is no penalty
for excessive absences, but good attendance will be used to determine

borderline grades. If a class is
missed, the student is responsible for all material and assignments.

Remember quizzes cannot be made
up.

**Disabilities:**

Students
with documented disabilities (through West Georgias Disability Services) will
be given

all
reasonable accommodations. Students
must take the responsibility to make their disability

known
and request academic adjustments or auxiliary aids. Adjustments needed in relation to test-

taking
must be brought to the instructor's attention well in advance of the test (at
least one week

prior).

Academic
honesty:

Students are expected to achieve
and maintain the highest standards of academic honesty and

excellence as described in the
Undergraduate Catalog and Uncatalog. In short, be responsible and

do your own work. Instances of
academic dishonesty will be handled accordingly.

Other Important
Dates:

Last
day to withdrawal with grade of W is October 10.
