Class meets: T Th, 11:00 am - 12:40 pm, CL 1010 Required Textbook: University Calculus, Elements with Early Trancendentals, 1st ed by Hass, Weir, & Thomas, plus MyMathLab software Material covered: Chapters 4-8, 14, with additions and deletions. Optional Additional Software: Thinkwell's Calculus II: Catalog Course Description: 4-0-4 Prerequisite: Math 1190 (190), Calculus 1. The main topics of this course will be integral calculus and infinite sequences and series. Emphasis will be placed on applications of the integral, techniques of integration, and Taylor Series. In addition to analytical methods, computing will be used to conduct numerical studies of integrals and series. Course Learning Outcomes: Math 2202 at Kennesaw State University is a course for students who may be math or science majors. It has the following Learning Outcomes: 1. Students will understand and communicate, both orally and in writing, basic concepts of integration, convergence (including absolute convergence) or divergence of sequences and series, understand the intrinsic relation between definite integral and series, understand and derive the Taylor series representations of elementary functions. 2. Students will understand, derive, and implement the basic techniques of integration such as variable substitution and integration by parts. 3. Students will understand and communicate, both orally and in writing, basic concepts of convergence (including absolute convergence) or divergence of sequences and series. 4. Students will understand, derive, and implement the basic tests for series such as the Integral Test, Comparison Tests, and the Ratio Test. 5. Students will understand the intrinsic relation between definite integral and series, and understand and derive the Taylor series representations of elementary functions. 6. Students will demonstrate computational techniques and some applications. Technology Statement: Technology in the form of a TI 84 graphing calculator (or its equivalent) or computers may be used throughout the course to enhance mathematical thinking and to judge reasonableness of solutions. Course Policies Attendance: Regular class attendance is required. Students are responsible for all material, assignments, and announcements presented in class. There will be no exam or quiz make-ups. I generally expect students to study a minimum of 2 hours outside of class for every hour of class time, just to pass the course. This will increase to 3-4 hours to earn an A or B, and should be every week, not just before the exams. Grading Policy: Grades will be determined according to the following scheme: 2 in-class exams worth 100 points each 200 points Comprehensive final worth 150 points 150 points Quizzes (10 worth 15 points each) 150 points Total 500 points The grading scale is: 451-500 (90 - 100%) A 401-450 (80 - 90%) B 351-400 (70 - 80%) C 301-350 (60 - 70%) D 0-300 (0 - 60%) F The lower exam score can be replaced by the final exam grade (appropriately scaled). Homework will be assigned, but not collected. The quizzes will be based directly on the homework, so it is essential to keep up with the homework. There will be 15 extra quiz points, to allow the lowest quiz to be dropped or missed. The instructor reserves the right to assign a lower or failing grade to any student found guilty of violating KSU's Academic Code of Conduct. Important Dates: 1/10 First day of class 2/16 Exam #1 3/3 - 3/9 Spring Break - no class 3/12 Last day to drop without academic penalty 4/5 Exam #2 4/26 Last day of class 5/1 10:30 am - 12:30 pm Final Exam Web: This course will be using Web resources, including (WebCT) Georgia View Vista. Students are strongly encouraged to check the Vista page regularly. Also, announcements will be made via the Vista announcement system or the Vista email system. If you ever have any questions about the course, either for the instructor or for other students, check the Vista page. Writing: Any work to be handed in and any answers on tests must be written in complete, grammatically correct English sentences. Moreover, it will be important that students' work be clear, coherent, complete, and consistent, as well as correct. Please note the following: Academic Integrity: Every KSU student is responsible for upholding the provisions of the Student Code of Conduct, as published in the Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs. Section II of the Student Code of Conduct addresses the University 's policy on academic honesty, including provisions regarding plagiarism and cheating, unauthorized access to University materials, misrepresentation/falsification of University records or academic work, malicious removal, retention, or destruction of library materials, malicious/intentional misuse of computer facilities and/or services, and misuse of student identification cards. Incidents of alleged academic misconduct will be handled through the established procedures of the University Judiciary Program, which includes either an "informal" resolution by a faculty member, resulting in a grade adjustment, or a formal hearing procedure, which may subject a student to the Code of Conduct 's minimum one semester suspension requirement. Withdrawal from courses: If you drop a course after the "drop date", you will receive a WF, which is calculated as an F in your GPA. If you drop a course during the Drop/Add period at the beginning of the semester, there will be no indication of this fact on your record. If, however, you drop a course between the end of Drop/Add and the misnamed "Deadline to drop without academic penalty," your transcript will indicate a grade of "W." There is a University policy on the total number of withdrawals a student may have (see the Undergraduate Catalogue). To withdraw you should complete the proper form online at the Registrar. A student ceasing to attend class and not completing course requirements will be assigned a failing grade if official online withdrawal has not been completed. Email communications: Please note that due to an excessive amount of spam and infected email, I delete most of my email without opening it. However, email from students is the most important email I receive, and I do try not to miss it. By sending me email from your account, and giving a subject line like "Calculus" or "class today", you increase the chance that I will read it. If you do not receive a response from me within 24 hours, try again, especially if you have sent it through Vista. Disability: If you have a hidden or visible disability that may require classroom or test accommodations, please see me as soon as possible. If you have not already done so, please register with KSU disAbled Student Support Services, the office responsible for coordinating accommodations and services for students with disabilities. ...
