Calculus with Analytic Geometry I, MAC-2311, section 5, fall 2000, course syllabus.

Location: 215 HTL.


Instructor: Dr. Mark VanHoeij

ELIGIBILITY. You must have the course prerequisites listed below and must never have completed with a grade of C- or better a course for which MAC 2311 is a (stated or implied) prerequisite. Students with prior credit in college calculus are required to reduce the credit for MAC 2311 accordingly. It is the student's responsibility to check and prove eligibility.

PREREQUISITES. You must have passed MAC1140 (College Algebra) and MAC1113 (Trigonometry) (or MAC2140 and MAC1114 at TCC) with a grade of C- or better or have appropriate transfer credit. Placement in AMP Group 1 or 1H (or 2 if you are currently taking trigonometry) is also considered to satisfy the prerequisite. AMP Group 3A with prior college algebra or AMP Group 3B with prior college trigonometry will also satisfy the prerequisite requirements.

TEXT. Calculus (Second Edition), by Hughes-Hallett, Gleason, McCallum, et al.

CALCULATORS. Students are required to have a programmable graphing calculator.

GRADING. The final will determine 40% of your grade. Each test will determine 15% of your grade. The quizzes we do in class (often in groups, sometimes alone) determine 5% of your grade. The remaining 10% will be determined by a project.

Last day to drop a course without receiving a grade: September 22. Be careful: if you do not show up at the tests and final, and you forgot to drop the course, you could receive an F, so make sure to drop the course if you decide you do not want to take this course.

No Classes on: September 4 (Labor day), and November 23 (Thanksgivings).

EXAM POLICY. There will be no makeup tests or quizzes. A missed test can only be excused before the day of the test, and you will need a good reason with proof. When a missed test is excused, the grade of the test will be the same as the grade on your final. A missed test will not be excused on or after the day of the test, and a non-excused missed test means zero points. A missed quiz can be excused if it happens no more than two times.

MATH HELP CENTER. The Math Help Center is located in 110 MCH (Milton Carothers Hall) next door to the Love Building. The hours of operation will be announced when they are available.
