Course Goals

Course Objectives

Course Outcomes

Course Assessment: The assessment of objectives is achieved through homeworks, quizzes, and common
examinations with common grading.

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 university-wide policies. DMS takes these policies very seriously and enforces them strictly.

Grading Policy: The final grade in this course will be determined as follows:

Homework, Quizzes, and MyMathLab 15%
Common Midterm Exam I 25%
Common Midterm Exam II 25%
Final Exam 35%

Your final letter grade will be based on the following tentative curve.

A 88 - 100 C 65 - 71
B+ 83- 87 D 60 - 64
B 77 - 82 F 0 - 59
C+ 72 - 76

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.

Homework Policy: Calculus is learned by solving problems. In Math 111, there are two kinds of homework assignments: 1) assignments which are written out by hand and turned in, and 2) assignments which are completed online. The homework assignments are listed on the syllabus; the * superscript denotes those problems which constitute the hand-in assignments while the remaining problems constitute the online assignments.

The online assignments can be completed at WWW.MYMATHLAB.COM or WWW.COURSECOMPASS.COM .  In order access the online assignments you need to have a student access code. Access codes are included with new book that is bundled with MyMathLab; codes can be purchased separately from the textbook at the campus bookstore or online at the course website. If you buy a new book from another source make sure it is bundled with MyMathLab. In addition, on the first day of class your course instructor will give you an additional code needed to access the online assignments. NOTE: Homework Assignments are DUE frequently (at least weekly) at the dates and times specified online and by your instructor.

How to Get Started with MyMathLab:

MATLAB Assignments: MATLAB is a mathematical software program that is used throughout the science and engineering curricula. One MATLAB assignment will be given during the semester.

Quiz Policy: Quizzes are given in class on a frequent basis (at least weekly). All of the quizzes will be graded. The homework and quizzes are intended to develop your problem-solving skills and to help you prepare for the exams.

Exams: There will be two common midterm exams held during the semester and one comprehensive common final exam. Exams are held on the following days:

Common Midterm Exam I June 20, 2018
Common Midterm Exam II July 18, 2018
Final Exam August 6, 2018

Makeup Exam Policy: To properly report your absence from a midterm or final exam, please review and follow the required steps under the DMS Examination Policy found here:

The time of the midterm exams will be determined by the instructor and/or the Math Department. 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.

Cellular Phones: All cellular phones and other electronic devices must be switched off during all class times.
