## Important deadlines you need to know

The semester begins Thursday, August 21st, and ends Friday, December 5th. The last day to obtain a “W” grade or to elect a pass/fail grade is Wednesday, August 27th. The first day in which a “WF” grade is assigned is therefore Thursday, August 28th. The last day to drop a course or withdraw without a grade of “WF” being recorded is Thursday, October 9th.

## Prerequisites

Qualifications earned by grade of **C** or better in MATH 112, 115, 116 or by a PreCalculus Placement Test.

## Text

*Calculus. Early Transcendentals* by James Stewart. **Thompson Brooks/Cole** 2008 (sixth edition)

Student Solutions Manual for Stewart's Multivariable Calculus, 6th Edition | Calculus: Early Transcendentals (Stewart's Calculus Series) |

You will be required to use Enhanced WebAssign, the online homework system that accompanies your textbook, for my course. If you choose to purchase a hard copy of the textbook, you need to buy the bundle that comes with the Enhanced WebAssign code.

## Course Structure and Grading Policies

Your final score for the course will be computed as follows:

`F = 0.1 * (HW + Q + CL + ME1 + ME2 + ME3 + ME4 + ME5) + 0.2 * FE`-
**Homework assignments**: (up to 100 points) 10% of the course grade.

Homework problems have been assigned for each lecture (you can see them at the end of this page, under**Lesson Plan**). A selection of those problems are posted on WebAssign on the day of the lecture, and will be graded. You will have until the end of the next class day to complete the assignment (e.g. what is posted on Monday is due on Wednesday at 11:59PM; what is posted on Friday is due on Monday at 11:59PM) In order to sign up for your section of the course on WebAssign, visit www.webassign.net and click on [**Enter Class Key**]. The class key is

**Quizzes**: (up to 100 points) 10% of the course grade.

A 15-minute quiz will be given in every recitation, except on the week of a midterm exam, or the last week of classes. At the end of the course, hopefully you will have taken at least 10 quizzes (if that is the case, only the 10 best scores will count toward your quiz average). -
**Computer Labs**: (up to 100 points) 10% of the course grade. -
**Midterm Exams**: (up to 100 points each) 50% of the course grade (10% each midterm).

There will be five in-class midterm exams scheduled as follows:Test # Date **1**Mon, Sep 08 **2**Fri, Sep 26 **3**Wed, Oct 15 **4**Mon, Nov 3 **5**Mon, Nov 24 -
**Final Exam**: (up to 100 points) 20% of the course grade.

The final exams are scheduled as follows:- Sections 011 & 012: Friday, December 12th at 12:30 PM.
- Sections 015 & 016: Monday, December 8th at 12:30 PM.

The course grade will be determined as follows:

GRADE | RANGE |
---|---|

A |
90%-100% |

B+ |
85%-89% |

B |
80%-84% |

C+ |
75%-79% |

C |
70%-74% |

D+ |
65%-69% |

SI is available for this course to assist you in better understanding the course material. The SI program provides peer-facilitated study sessions led by qualified and trained undergraduate SI leaders who attend classes with students and encourage students to practice and discuss course concepts in sessions. Sessions are open to all students who want to improve their understanding of the material, as well as their grades. SI sessions will focus on the most recent material covered in class. Each SI leader holds three sessions per week. Your SI leader is Tyler Hernandez and you can find the schedule online at www.sa.sc.edu/supplementalinstruction/. You can contact the Student Success Center at (803) 777-0684 if you have questions about the SI session schedule.

## Learning Outcomes

A student who successfully completes Calculus I (MATH 141) should continue to develop as an independent learner with the ability to approach problems from a conceptual viewpoint, to utilize more than one idea in a single problem, and to apply appropriate calculus skills to problems in context.
