Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Homework – weekly homework will contain exercises from your textbook to be submitted by the deadline indicated in the syllabus (usually by the Sunday of the corresponding week).
Quizzes – Each week includes 2 quizzes. Quiz 1 is a timed and a one-time submission quiz. Quiz 2 is not timed and may be submitted as many times as the student decides. The quizzes are due by 11:59 CST on Sunday of the academic week. No late submissions are allowed. Each quiz contains 10 questions.
Weekly Discussion – Respond at least once to a topic for that week, post a ‘thoughtful’ comment to someone else's posting. (3 bonus points max for additional posting -- refer to discussion tread instructions).
Final Exam – Complete the final exam in Week 8.
In terms of percentage, the final grade will be according to the following scale:
90 – 100 % => A
80 – 89 % => B
70 – 79 % => C
60 – 69 % => D
<60 % => F
Late Submission of Course Materials:
No late submissions and posting are accepted for the two quizzes and the weekly discussion. These learning activities must be completed within the online week to which they refer.
Late submission of homework may be accepted under special circumstances.
It is unfair to other students to allow some individuals to submit assignments after the scheduled due date. The following is a list of valid reasons for submitting late work:
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Class Participation in the Online Learning Environment
Finally, come talk to me when you have questions, concerns, or suggestions about the class. It is less frustrating for both of us if you ask questions before the assignment is due, rather than after it has affected your performance.
The material we’ll cover during week 1 is a review of the topics you have studied in the previous calculus course especially in relation to functions and their derivatives. These basic concepts represent the fundaments to further develop the subjects in this calculus course.
Chapter 3 –Differentiation; Chapter 4 – Application of Derivatives
The material of week 2 includes the main topics of calculus. The subjects covered are the fundamental concept about integration intended as finite sum. The concept of approximation is also introduced.
Chapter 5 – Integration (Sections 5.1 to 5.3)
The material of week 3 concludes the topic of integration and introduces additional techniques for the calculation of integrals. The chapter also covers the concept of indefinite integrals.
Chapter 5 – Integration (Sections 5.4 to 5.6)
The material of week 4 is dedicated to the applications of definite integrals. The chapter presents different techniques to evaluate volume of solids and areas of surfaces of revolution. Applications to physics are also introduced.
Chapter 6 – Application of Definite Integrals
The material of week 5 introduces the concepts of integrals applied to transcendental functions. Portion of this week chapter was covered during the previous calculus class. The chapter reiterates the definition of derivatives and integrals applied to logarithmic, exponential, and trigonometric functions. Inverse trigonometric functions are also covered. The concepts of differentials and initial value problems are introduced. The chapter concludes with hyperbolic functions and their integrations properties.
Chapter 7 – Transcendental Functions
The material of week 6 is dedicated to the techniques of integration. The chapter shows the strategies to apply the integration by parts and by substitution. The sections covered this week also show the particular relationship among trigonometric integrals.
Chapter 8 – Techniques of Integration (Sections 8.1 to 8.3)
During Week 7, we’ll conclude chapter 8 about the techniques of integration. The chapter introduces methods to solve integrals containing rational functions. It also includes an introduction to numerical approximation comparing it to the integration method. The chapter concludes with the topic of improper integrals and how to solve this type of problems.
Chapter 8 – Techniques of Integration (Sections 8.4 to 8.7)
