VISION STATEMENT
Park University will be a renowned international leader in providing innovative educational opportunities for learners within the global society.

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, applications of the derivative, indefinite integration, the trigonometric functions.

FACULTY’S EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY: The instructor’s educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lecture, discussion, individual work, cooperative work, and examinations. The instructor will randomly select students to display and discuss assigned work.

COURSE OBJECTIVES: The student will be able to demonstrate an understanding of techniques of integration and differentiation that my be used in solving problems applicable to real world.

COURSE TEXTBOOK(S): Larson, Hostetler, Edwards, Calculus, 7th Edition, Houghton Mifflin Publishers, 2002.

ACADEMIC HONESTY: “Academic Honesty is required of all members of a learning community. Hence, Park will not tolerate cheating or plagiarism on tests, examinations, papers or other course assignments. Students who engage in such dishonesty may be given failing grades or expelled from Park.”
PLAGIARISM: Plagiarism—the appropriation or imitation of the language or ideas of another person and presenting them as one’s original work—sometimes occurs through carelessness or ignorance. Students who are uncertain about proper documentation of sources should consult their instructors.”

ATTENDANCE POLICY: Instructors are required to keep attendance records and report absences. The instructor may excuse absences for cogent reasons, but missed work must be made up within the term of enrollment. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of “F”. An Incomplete will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance (TA) or Veterans Administration (VA) educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student. Reports of F grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for students receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned above will be reported to the appropriate agency.

LATE SUBMISSION OF COURSE MATERIALS: The instructor will not accept assignments late unless for documented, excused reasons. Unexcused reasons for assignments not submitted on the due date will receive a grade of “zero”.

COURSE ASSESSMENT: Course assessments are based on participation and examinations.

CLASSROOM RULES OF CONDUCT: Class participation is expected, students are expected to come to all classes and be on time. Roll will be checked at each class meeting. Classes missed for legitimate reasons (e.g. illness, TDT) are excusable; however the student is expected to make up the missed class work. Three unexcused absences are excessive and will be reported to the Military Resident Center Administrator. TDY orders may be given to the instructor or turned into the school office.

DISABILITY GUIDELINES: Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University’s policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities and, to the extent of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
