Prerequisites: One year of high school calculus or a minimum score of 2 on the AB Calculus AP exam. If you have less than one year of high school calculus, Math 220 might be more suitable for you.
ALEKS Assessment: Every student must take ALEKS
Assessment by Sept 5. You can try
multiple times. One attempt is free and additional attempts will cost
$3.50. If you earn 60% or above on any of your attempts, then you will get
100% for the ALEKS portion of the grade. If you do not reach 60% by
September 5, then you will earn 0% on the ALEKS portion of the grade and it is
strongly recommended that you switch to Math 115-Precalculus instead of Calculus
I. If you have taken ALEKS during the summer and earned over 60%, then you
must still take it again (for free) to get the 100% instead of 0% on this
portion of your grade.
Policy on missed Midterm Exams: If you miss an exam, you will receive a 0 for your grade on the exam. The only exception is if you have a valid excuse for missing, such as a serious illness or emergency - if so, you must inform me before the exam or, if this is physically impossible, then as soon as possible afterwards. In this case, the grade of the final exam will count as the grade for the missed exam.
Homework and Quizzes: Homework will be assigned every Thursday online. Homework will not be graded but you are expected to do it. Quizzes will be given approximately each week in Discussion Session (except those weeks with hour exams). Each quiz contains about two problems, and will be chosen from the homework (with possible minor changes). At the end of the semester, the quiz with the lowest score will be dropped. We do not offer make-up quizzes!
Disabilities: Students with disabilities who require reasonable accommodations to participate in this class are asked to see me as soon as possible. In particular, any accommodations for exams must be arranged a week in advance and will require a letter from DRES.
