` 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.

IV. Course Objectives:
The successful student will be able to:
· demonstrate an understanding of algebraic and trigonometric functions and their graphs.
· ascertain limits and show the techniques of finding limits.
· demonstrate an ability to find derivatives using presented differentiation techniques.
· apply differentiation to scientific, social, and business problems.
· find antiderivatives and apply indefinite and definite integration techniques.

V. Course Textbook(s): Smith and Minton. Calculus 2nd edition.
McGraw - Hill.

VI. 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.

VII. 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.

VIII. 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administratively withdrawn, resulting n a grade of “F”.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 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.

IX. Late Submission of Course Materials: It is the student’s responsibility to
ascertain if any work has been missed and to make up that work
with the consent and agreement of the instructor. No work will
be accepted after the date of the final examination except with
prearranged agreement of the instructor.

X. Course Assessment: Final grades will be based upon the performance on
three tests and homework assigned during the semester.

XI. Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students are expected to show respect for each
other. Respect for the instructor is encouraged, but not required.

XII. 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
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. Additional information
concerning Park University’s policies and procedures related to
disability can be found on the Park University web page:

XIII. Course Topics/Dates/Assignments: A separate assignment and test date
handout will be distributed to the class. The itinerary, homework, and test dates are subject to revision during the semester.

XIIII. Grading Plan: The three tests will be weighted equally and each
worth 25% of final grade. Homework will be assigned throughout the semester and due dates will be given at the time of the assignment. Homework scores will be weighted equally and cumulatively worth 25% of final grade.
A = 90 - 100
B = 80 – 89.9
C = 70 – 79.9
D = 60 – 69.9
F = 0 - 59.9

XV. Supplemental Resource Materials List:
Students should have a scientific calculator.
