Course Goals
Course Objectives
 Students should:
 develop greater depth of understanding of integration and its importance in scientific and engineering applications,
 learn about series, including their convergence properties and their use in representing functions,
 gain experience in the use of approximation in studying mathematical and scientific problems and the importance of mathematically understanding and evaluating the accuracy of approximations,
 learn new ways of mathematically representing curves and how to use calculus in these settings, and
 learn alternative coordinate systems which are natural for many problems and learn how calculus can be applied in these systems.
 Students should gain an appreciation for the importance of calculus in scientific, engineering, computer, and other applications. Students should gain experience in the use of technology to facilitate visualization and problem solving.
 Students have a greater understanding of the importance of calculus in science and technology.
 Students are prepared for further study in mathematics as well as science, engineering, computing, and other areas.
Course Assessment: The assessment of objectives is achieved through homeworks, quizzes, and exams.
Policies
DMS Course Policies: All DMS students must familiarize themselves with, and adhere to, the Department of Mathematical Sciences Course Policies, in addition to official universitywide policies. DMS takes these policies very seriously and enforces them strictly.

Attendance Policy: Attendance at all classes will be recorded and is mandatory. Please make sure you read and fully understand the Math Department’s Attendance Policy. This policy will be strictly enforced. Students are expected to attend class. Each class is a learning experience that cannot be replicated through simply “getting the notes.” Attendance at all classes (both lecture and recitation) will be recorded and is mandatory.
Homework Policy: Homework is an expectation of the course. All homework for the semester is listed above by section. In addition to the assigned homework, students will be required to complete foundation questions for each section PRIOR to beginning the section. These questions will allow students to review relevant material covered in the section. This will be graded as homework in addition to the assigned homework in the syllabus.
Quiz Policy: Quizzes will be given throughout the semester. They will be based on the lecture, homework, foundation questions and the inclass discussions. Quizzes will sometimes be assigned through WebAssign and will be completed outside class. There will be 610 assessments given throughout the semester.
Exams: There will be two midterm exams held in class during the semester and one comprehensive final exam. The final exam will be held during the following week:
Midterm Exam I 
Lecture 10 (subject to change) 
Midterm Exam II 
Lecture 20 (subject to change) 
Final Exam Week 
May 10  16, 2019 
The final exam will test your knowledge of all the course material taught in the entire course. Make sure you read and fully understand the Math Department's Examination Policy. This policy will be strictly enforced.
Makeup Exam Policy: There will be No makeup QUIZZES OR EXAMS during the semester. In the event an exam is not taken under rare circumstances where the student has a legitimate reason for missing the exam, the student should contact the Dean of Students office and present written verifiable proof of the reason for missing the exam, e.g., a doctor’s note, police report, court notice, etc. clearly stating the date AND time of the mitigating problem. The student must also notify the Math Department Office/Instructor that the exam will be missed.
Cellular Phones: All cellular phones and other electronic devices must be switched off during all class times.

Math Tutoring Center: Located in the Central King Building, Lower Level, Rm. G11 (See: Spring 2019 Hours)
Further Assistance: For further questions, students should contact their instructor. All instructors have regular office hours during the week. These office hours are listed on the Math Department's webpage for Instructor Office Hours and Emails.
All students must familiarize themselves with and adhere to the Department of Mathematical Sciences Course Policies, in addition to official universitywide policies. The Department of Mathematical Sciences takes these policies very seriously and enforces them strictly.
