OFFICE HOURS: TBD
PREREQUISITES: MAC 2281 or MAC 2311.
CONTENT: Continuation of MAC 2311. 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 grade. 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, a makeup test, and a final examination. The five tests and final will take place during the regurlarly scheduled class time on the following dates unless otherwise noted.
|January 25th||Friday||Test 1|
|February 22nd||Friday||Test 2|
|March 29th||Friday||Test 3|
|April 19th||Friday||Test 4|
|April 24th||Wednesday||Make-Up Test|
|April 26th||Friday, 10:30am-1:00pm||Final Exam|
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,
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 grade. Etc. For a general sense of the course (this is an approximation): quizzes 7%, four tests 38%, final 50%, others 5% There is also a Gateway Exam that the students will need to pass before the final day of classes to ensure that they pass the course. If a student does not pass this exam by the last day of the semester the instructor will be forced to give a grade of F for the course. The student may attempt the Gateway Exam as many times as possible.
Collaboration and the Honor Code: You are expected to adhere to the Honor Code (see http://www.fau.edu/divdept/honcol/academics_honor_code.htm).
DISCLAIMER: The instructor reserves the right to change/alter/add/delete any statement from this syllabus in hopes of creating a more enjoyable/equitable course.
