Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
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:

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 of week 1 is a review of the topics studied in the previous algebra courses especially in relation to functions and their graph. These basic concepts represent the fundaments to further develop the subjects in this calculus course. Chapter 1
The material of week 2 includes the main topics of calculus. The subjects covered are the fundamental concepts about limits and analyzes all the different cases we may encounter in calculus. Chapter 2 – Limits and Continuity (Sections 2.1 to 2.4)
The material of week 3 concludes the topic of the limit and introduces the important concept of continuity. The chapter also introduces the concept of derivatives in geometric terms. Chapter 2 – Limits and Continuity (Sections 2.5 to 2.7)
The material of week 4 is dedicated to the definition of derivatives. The chapter presents the differentiation rules and the definition of the derivative concepts as a rate of change. The derivatives of trigonometric functions are also introduced. Chapter 3 – Differentiation (Sections 3.1 to 3.4)
The material of week 5 concludes the field of differentiation. The fundamental chain rule is introduced together with the concept of implicit differentiation. The concepts of linearization and differentials are also presented in this chapter. To conclude, it is reviewed the important concept of curve parameterization. Chapter 3 – Differentiation (Sections 3.5 to 3.9)
The material of week 6 is dedicated to the calculation of the derivative. The chapter shows the strategies to apply the fundamental derivation rules of the different functions. The derivative will be applied to identify increasing or decreasing functions and the function extreme values. The chapter introduces also the use of higher derivative to analyze the concavity of a function. Chapter 4 – Applications of Derivatives
During Week 7, we’ll review the concepts inverse of functions and their derivatives. Logarithmic and exponential functions are also introduced. The chapter review trigonometric functions and their inverse. The derivatives of transcendental functions are explained. The chapter concludes with the hyperbolic functions and L’Hopital’s rule. Chapter 7 – Transcendental Functions
Discussions – Initial Posts by Friday at 12:01 a.m. CST, follow-up post by Sunday at midnight CST.
Assignments (Homework and Quizzes) – By Sunday at midnight CST
