Course Description: The study of calculus continues with the definite integral and its applications, transcendental functions, integration techniques, the conic sections, polar coordinates, parametric equations, indeterminate forms, and improper integrals.
Educational Philosophy: I believe in the primacy of learning over simply checking a block on the way to earning a piece of paper. Via a continuous cycle of two-way information exchange, we use the course material as the vehicle within which to develop a problem solving mindset. We leave the course better prepared to overcome the quantitative challenges we may encounter in our professional and educational careers.
Learning Outcomes:Students successfully completing this course will demonstrate basic skill in the manipulation of the following concepts:
B. Applications of the Definite Integral
C. Transcendental Functions.
D. Techniques of Integration.
E. Parametric Equations and Polar Coordinates
Course Assessment: Students are evaluated on three basic areas: weekly homework to insure they keep up with the material, a weekly take-home quiz covering the previous week's material, and a final.
Homework (10%): Students will receive a homework assignment after every meeting. Students will submit completed assignment to the instructor following the weekly quiz. Grading will be based on level of effort. Students may and are indeed encouraged to collaborate on these homework assignments.
Quizzes (60%): Quizzes are take-home and cover the previous week's topic. They are strictly individual effort!
Final (30%): The final will be a take-home, open-book exam. The final will be equivalent in effort to three take-home quizzes. Again, the final is strictly individual effort!
Grading: A - 100-90; B - 89-80; C - 79-70; D - 69-60; F - <= 59.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Must be negotiated individually. I reserve the right to not accept late submissions. Baring any exceptional circumstance, the default grading policy for late submissions will result in a zero for the HW sets and 10 points off quizzes for every day late. The final will be accepted late only on the most exceptional circumstance.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Participate in class discussions, take notes, ask questions, be respectful, be on time, be ready to work. I am going to give you the class my best effort and I expect the same from everyone else.
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. <a href="http://www.park.edu/catalog">
Park University 2004-2005 Undergraduate Catalog</a> Page 101Plagiarism will not be tolerated and will result at a minimum in an automatic failure of submitted work. This courses relies upon take-home quizzes and a take-home final - only work that is clearly a student's own will receive credit. Continued evidence of plagiarism will result in an automatic failing grade.
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences
via the online attendance reporting system.
