Textbook:
Edwards, Hostetler, Larson. Calculus and Analytic Geometry. 8th Edition.  Houghton Mifflin Co, Boston, 2005.
ISBN: 0-618-50298-X

Textbooks can be purchased though the MBS bookstore


Course Description:
The study of the calculus begins with an examination of the real number system and the Cartesian plane.  Additional topics to be considered include: functions and their graphs, limits and differentiation techniques, the mean value theorem, application of the derivative, indefinite integration, the trigonometric functions.  Pre-requisites:  MA131 and MA141 or MA150 or equivalent.  3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:
The instructor's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, written practice, quizzes and examinations.  The instructor encourages exploration of the material and questioning to deeper the student's understanding and empower them to take responsibility for their success in the course.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Define a mathematical limit and compute various limits
  2. Define a continuous function
  3. Recognize where continuity occurs and its consequences
  4. Define the derivative in terms of a limit of a difference quotient and recognize its geometric applications and properties
  5. Differentiate polynomials, trigonometric, and exponential functions
  6. Utilize first and second derivatives to graph functions
  7. Apply derivatives to optimization and related rates problems
  8. Apply the power rule, the sum rule, the difference rule, the constant factor rule, the product rule, the quotient rule, the chain rule


Class Assessment:
examinations, quizzes, homework

Grading:
Exams (4): 400 points 51%
Homework/Quizzes: 300 points 39%
Participation: 80 points 10%
Total: 780 points 100%

Late Submission of Course Materials:
The instructor will accept assignments late only with homework and only for justifiable reasons, as deemed by the instructor.  Students should not expect to receive extra time on completing assignments.  Since the course is compacted into 8 weeks students cannot afford to fall behind in the work.  Take home test will not be accepted late.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Each student is expected to attend and participate in all scheduled classes.  Asking questions allows the instructor to assess the student's level of learning and provides deeper understanding for the student, so it is highly encouraged.  Students should also come to class prepared everyday including bringing their calculator and all work that is turned in must be neat.

Academic Honesty:
Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.   Park University 2005-2006 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85-87

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. Park University 2005-2006 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85-87

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "WH".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
