REQUIRED TEXT: *Calculus*, Fifth Edition, by J. Stewart

COURSE DESCRIPTION: Continued study of techniques and applications of integration; trigonometric, logarithmic and exponential functions; polar coordinates; vectors; parametric equations; sequences and series.

COURSE GRADES: Student grades are based on weekly quizzes, attendance and participation, four (4) midterm examinations, and one (1) comprehensive final examination. Weights are summarized in the following table.

Quizzes: | 20% |

Attendance and participation: | 5% |

Midterms: | 15% each |

Final Exam: | 30% |

Final grades will be assigned according to the following percentages.

A | 93-100% | A- | 90-92.9% | ||

B+ | 87-89.9% | B | 83-86.9% | B- | 80-82.9% |

HOMEWORK: I will assign homework daily in lecture. Assignments will also be listed below. Homework will not be collected. Students are encouraged to work on homework in groups.

QUIZZES: Quizzes will be taken at the beginning of class on Fridays. You will be allowed to use one (1) page of notes during each quiz. Books and calculators will not be allowed during the quizzes. I will drop your two (2) lowest quiz scores. Make-up quizzes will not be allowed.

ATTENDANCE: It is in your best interests to attend all class meetings. Good attendance is critical to your success in the class for a number of reasons. First, attendance and participation are worth 5% of your course grade. Second, your presence, attention, and participation in lecture will greatly help your performance in this class. For these reasons, I will take attendance each class period. Officially excused absences will not be counted against you, but you must document such situations with me personally.

EXAMS: Midterm exams will be taken in class and will last 50 minutes. The final examination will be comprehensive and will last 2 hours and 15 minutes. You will be allowed to use one (1) page of notes during each exam. Books and calculators will not be allowed during the exams. I will drop your lowest midterm score. Make-up exams will not be allowed. If you have a conflict with the final exam date, you are responsible for making alternative arrangements with me beforehand.

TENTATIVE SCHEDULE: I reserve the right to make reasonable changes to the schedule if I find it necessary.

LECTURE NOTES: Clear and thorough course notes will provide you with a basis for your preparations for homework assignments, quizzes, and exams. You are responsible for taking notes during class, as I will not be posting my lecture notes online.

WORKLOAD: You should plan to spend 10--15 hours per week working on this course outside lecture.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Course announcements will be sent to your kent.edu email account. It is your responsibility to check this email account regularly.

GRAPHING CALCULATORS: Graphing calculators are not required for this course, but you may find one useful. (I personally use the TI-85.) Calculators will not be allowed in the quizzes or exams.

QUESTIONS: If something I say or write in lecture is unclear, raise your hand and ask a question. I will try to clarify the point I am making.

GROUP STUDY: Find at least one person in the class with whom you can study. Not only does this help you study better, but also, in the event you miss a lecture, you can get the notes and assignments from this person.

TEXT READING: Read the relevant sections of the text book before lecture. Even if you don't understand everything, seeing it once before I present it will help you follow lecture considerably.

OFFICE HOURS: Come to my office hours for help. This gives me the opportunity to focus on specific problems you may be having and to explain things in a more personal manner. If the scheduled times are bad for you, make an appointment with me.

INSTRUCTOR FEEDBACK: Here is a link to an anonymous evaluation form where students can submit comments or suggestions for me at any time during the semester.

COURTESY: Cellular telephones, pagers, and other similar devices are not to be used and are to be turned off or set to vibrate-mode during class-time. Students violating this policy will receive one warning per semester. After the warning, violations will result in loss of attendance credit for that day.

STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES: University policy 3342-3-18 requires that students with disabilities be provided reasonable accommodations to ensure their equal access to course content. If you have a documented disability and require accommodations, please contact the instructor at the beginning of the semester to make arrangements for necessary classroom adjustments. Please note, you must first verify your eligibility for these through Student Accessibility Services (contact 330-672-3391 or visit http://www.registrars.kent.edu/disability/default.htm for more information on registration procedures).

STATEMENT ON ACADEMIC DISHONESTY:
Excerpted from the University's Administrative policy and procedures
regarding student cheating and plagiarism. Policy #3342-3-07

(A) **Policy statement.** It is the policy of the university that:

(1) Students enrolled in the university, at all its campuses, are to perform their academic work according to standards set by faculty members, departments, schools and colleges of the university; and

(2) Cheating and plagiarism constitute fraudulent misrepresentation for which no credit can be given and for which appropriate sanctions are warranted and will be applied.

(B) Intent and scope of the policy.

(1) In providing this policy, the university affirms that acts of cheating and plagiarism by students constitute a subversion of the goals of the institution, have no place in the university and are serious offenses to academic goals and objectives, as well as to the rights of fellow students.

(2) It is the intent of this policy to provide appropriate sanctions, to provide fair and realistic procedures for imposing those sanctions, to provide safeguards for any student suspected of cheating or plagiarism, and to coordinate the policy with procedures of the code of student conduct, rule 3342-4-15 of the Administrative Code and of this register.

(3) This policy applies to all students of the university, graduate and undergraduate, full or part-time, whose conduct is of such a nature prohibited by the policy. Other offenses of a nonacademic nature are covered by the code of student conduct, rule 3342-4-15 of the Administrative Code and of this register.

(C) Definitions. As used in this rule:

(1) **``Cheat''** means intentionally to misrepresent the source, nature, or other conditions of academic work so as to accrue undeserved credit, or to cooperate with someone else in such misrepresentation. Such misrepresentations may, but need not necessarily, involve the work of others. As defined, cheating includes, but is not limited to:

(a) Obtaining or retaining partial or whole copies of examination, tests or quizzes before these are distributed for student use;

(b) Using notes, textbooks or other information in examinations, tests and quizzes, except as expressly permitted;

(c) Obtaining confidential information about examinations, tests or quizzes other than that released by the instructor;

(d) Securing, giving or exchanging information during examinations;

(e) Presenting data or other material gathered by another person or group as one's own;

(f) Falsifying experimental data or information;

(g) Having another person take one's place for any academic performance without the specific knowledge and permission of the instructor;

(h) Cooperating with another to do one or more of the above; and

(i) Using a substantial portion of a piece of work previously submitted for another course or program to meet the requirements of the present course or program without notifying the instructor to whom the work is presented.

(j) Presenting falsified information in order to postpone or avoid examinations, tests, quizzes, or other academic work.

(2) **``Plagiarize''** means to take and present as one's own a material portion of the ideas or words of another or to present as one's own an idea or work derived from an existing source without full and proper credit to the source of the ideas, words, or works. As defined, plagiarize includes, but is not limited to:

(a) The copying of words, sentences and paragraphs directly from the work of another without proper credit;

(b) The copying of illustrations, figures, photographs, drawings, models, or other visual and nonverbal materials, including recordings, of another without proper credit; and

(c) The presentation of work prepared by another in final or draft form as one's own without citing the source, such as the use of purchased research papers.
