Logarithmic, Exponential, hyperbolic, and inverse trigonometric functions, techniques of integration, partial fractions, area, trapezoid and Simpson's rules, volume, work; analytic geometry; Taylor approximations; sequences and series; polar representation of complex numbers. This is a General Education course.

We will cover chapters 6 through 10 of the test.

CLASS STRUCTURE: The class will be mostly run in a lecture style format though the instructor encourages discussions and questions concerning the material. Some days will be used for collaborative efforts. Though the homework will only occassionally be collected and graded, the student is expected to do all the problems as this will aid in the student's understanding of the material. Please feel free to come to office hours if you have additional questions about the homework.

ATTENDANCE POLICY: Regular attendance is expected. If a student misses a class meeting it is his/her responsibility to obtain the class notes either from another student or from the instructor during regularly scheduled office hours. However, the latter usually means the student will be given the sections that were covered. If a student misses 4 classes, the instructor has the right to drop the student's course grade by one letter grade. If a student misses 8 classes, the instructor has the right to drop the student's course grade by two letter grades, etc. All exams will be taken as scheduled, unless prior arrangements are made with at least 48 hours of advance notice. I, and only I, have the right to agree to giving a makeup exam.

EXAM SCHEDULE: There will be some quizzes (announced or unannounced), four tests, and a final examination. The four tests will take place during the regurlarly scheduled class time on the following dates unless otherwise noted. The final exam will also be scheduled as follows.

Date Day Event
September 9th Tuesday Test 1
October 2nd Thursday Test 2
October 28th Tuesday Test 3
November 20th Thursday Test 4
December 9th Tuesday 10:30am-1:00pm Final Exam
Each test/exam will be cummulative and knowledge of previous material is essential. The quizzes will cover material since the previous quiz. I will try to be as straightforward as possible with regards to the material covered over the quizzes, tests, and exam.
The instructor will drop the lowest test grade.

EVALUATION: Throughout the course the student will have opportunities to gain and lose points. The most common examples of gaining points (but not limited to) are through the quizzes, homework promlems, tests, final exams, extra-credit problems, and class participation. The most common examples of losing points (but not limited to) are not taking a quiz, test, or final, or an unsatisfactory attendance record. At the end of the semester if the student's (net) point total is greater than or equal to 90% of the total possible number of points then the student will have earned an A. The rest of the grades are as follows 80%-89.9% B, 70%-79.9% C, 60%-69.9% D, below 60% F. The cutoffs for plusses and minuses are standard.
If a student misses 4 classes, the instructor has the right to drop the student's course grade by one letter grade. If a student misses 8 classes, the instructor has the right to drop the student's course grade by two letter grades, etc.
For a general sense of the course (this is an approximation): quizzes 6%, (best of) three tests 39%, final 50%, others 5%
