Textbook: Calculus, James Stewart, 7th metric international ed., 2012. (available at the bookstore)
Exams and Grading: Course grades are determined by (online and written) homework, short exams (organized by the teaching assistants), two (non-cumulative) midterm exams, and a cumulative final exam.
- Homework: 4 % (2% WeBWork and 2% Written)
- Short Exams: 3x 7 % = 21 % (Oct. 16, Nov. 27, and Dec. 25)
- Midterm Exams: 2x 20 % = 40 % (Nov. 17 and Dec. 22)
- Final Exam: 35 %
- Bonus: 5 %
Homework: Online homeworks are assigned and graded using the WeBWork system. The written homework will cover optimization and curve sketching and includes a MATLAB component.
Short Exams: Short exams will be given on Wednesday evening Oct 17, Nov 28, and Dec 26. Problems in short exams will be chosen from the previous webwork assignments and suggested problems posted online.
Bonus: Exams will each have a bonus problem which counts for 1% bonus. Up to 1% bonus will also be awarded for submitting links to educational videos or finding mistakes with webwork problems. Bonus for each student is capped at 5%.
NA Grade Policy: Students who attend less than 60% of lectures (< 16 classes) will not be eligible to take the final exam and will automatically be given an NA for the course. This will also apply to students who miss (without excuse) more than one midterm and one short exam.
Make-up Midterm Policy: In order to be eligible to enter the make-up examination for a missed (midterm or final) examination, a student must have a documented or verifiable and officially acceptable excuse. It is not possible to make up multiple missed exams. The make-up examination for all exams will be after the final exam, and will include all topics.
Missed Short Exam Policy: At most one short exam may be missed with a valid, acceptable excuse. This short exam's grade will be replaced by the average grade of the other short exams.
Cheating Policy: Cheating on any midterm or short exam will result in an immediate score of 0 on that exam. Furthermore, the student will be forced to take the make-up final at the end of exams period in lieu of the regularly scheduled final exam. Cheating on the final exam will result in an immediate grade of FF in the course.
Math Help Room: Office hours will be held in the mathematics help room (T-103). Students are encouraged to visit the help room both at the office hours of their own instructors, and others. The room can also be used for studying and for working in groups. Students are also encouraged to seek out instructors in their offices.
Suggested Problems: For each lecture, the assistants will announce additional suggested problems from the textbook. These problems will not be graded. The list of problems is available on the course website.
