To Do Well in Calculus: Here are some suggestions for doing well in this class:

1. Come to class regularly
2. Come to class prepared (read the sections before they are covered in class, do the four problems in the CONCEPTS REVIEW section, and do the first two problems in each PROBLEM SET)
3. Promptly do all of the assigned homework. Don't get behind!!
4. Write clear and concise solutions to the homework, so that when you are studying for an exam, you will be able to understand what you have done.
5. If you have difficulty, see the instructor, the tutors in the Tutor Lab (SL1224), or another student in the class. The Tutor Lab hours will be posted early in the term. No appointment is necessary, and the service is provided free of charge. The Student Solution Manual, available in the Bookstore, may also be helpful.

Technology Projects: There will be computer labs every other Wednesday beginning in Week 2. You will be using Mathematica, a powerful package for doing calculus. Except for the first and last labs, you will be given Technology Projects to work on. (The first lab is a tutorial, and the last is the lab final exam.) These technology projects will be done in the computer lab, but turned in later. Answer the questions that are asked completely and thoroughly. Use complete English sentences. Explain what you did and what you learned; don't just tell us what your computer told you. Use Mathematica itself as your word processor. Turn in the assignments on time.

Writing: I expect excellent writing on your lab reports. On tests, you will have limited time, I don't expect as much. Do, however be careful of a few things.

1. The more you can explain to me (in words, pictures, equations, etc.) the more partial credit I can give. An incorrect answer showing that you began the problem correctly will get some partial credit. An incorrect answer with disorganized or missing work will get nothing.
2. Honor the equal sign. "=" means "equals". Don't make the following mistake:
3. Problem: Let and find Solution:

4. When you claim that two expressions are equal, they better be equal!!!
5. Organize. Align the equal signs. Write neatly.

Important Notes: *** No make exams ***

A grade of I can be given only under the following circumstances:

1. The student is prevented by a medical or similar emergency from completing a small portion of the course requirements.
2. The student presents valid documentation of the emergency.
3. The student is passing the course at the time of the emergency.
4. A grade of I cannot be given as an alternative to an E or UW.

Lab reports are due at the beginning of class on the date stated on the syllabus. The penalty for late work is 5 points if the assignment is turned in by the end of the day. Work will not be accepted after the due date.

The last day to drop a course without receiving a grade is August 31.

The last day to withdraw from a class without permission of adviser & instructor is October 26. You receive a W grade.

The last day to withdraw from a class or from school with permission of adviser and instructor is November 16. You receive a grade of WP if you are passing the course or a WE if you are not passing at the time you drop.

Criteria for Grading Homework and Lab Reports:

 Correctness and Completeness Response is complete and correct. Arguments are valid and reasoning is correct. All statements are unambiguous and correct. /6 Organization and Development Structure of report is well thought out and organized according to the appropriate style. Uses supporting elements (Figures, Tables, Mathematica code, etc.) that are accurate and appropriate. Conclusions are prominent and follow from students reasoning. /2 Writing Style and Presentation Report uses appropriate words. Paragraphs flow smoothly. Report shows mastery of punctuation, capitalization, and spelling. Presentation of mathematics follows established conventions. /2 TOTAL /10

On-Line Materials: The syllabus and homework assignments can be obtained from the links at http://www.siue.edu/~srigdon.

Homework: Most homework will not be collected for grading. However, you cannot do well in the course without doing the homework. If you have difficulty on homework problems, ask me or a tutot in the Tutor Lab. Or, send me an e-mail before class. I may decide to work the problem in class or give a hint in class.
