Text: College Mathematics, 10th Edition, 2005, with Barnett, Ziegler and Byleen, ISBN 0131432095
Prerequisites: Math 100 or suitable placement score.
Final Exam: Thursday May 18th 14:4516:45
Fundamental Skills to be Learned:
Attendance: Grading: Semester grades will be assigned using the following weighted averages:
Homework: 
Quizzes:
I will give quizzes based on the homework about once a week (except for weeks when there is an exam). I plan to have ten quizzes over the course of the semester (see proposed schedule). I will drop the lowest two quiz scores. The remaining 8 grades will count 2.5% each, making a total of 20% of your grade for the course. These quizzes may take place during class time on Friday (1015 minutes or so) OR I might hand the quiz out on Thursday and you will be asked to hand it in on Friday at the beginning of class. Clearly, then, it will be vitally important to be in class both of those days!
Calculators
Calculators: You may use any fourfunction, scientific, or graphing calculator, except calculators including pocket organizers, handheld or laptop computers, electronic writing pads or peninput devices (the Sharp EL 9600 is permitted), calculators built into cellular phones or other wireless communication devices, calculators with a typewriter keypad with keys in QWERTY format (calculators with letter keys not in QWERTY format are permitted), calculators with builtin computer algebra systems, prohibited calculators in this category include: Casio: Algebra fx 2.0, ClassPad 300, and all model numbers that begin with CFX9970G, Texas Instruments: All model numbers that begin with TI89 or TI92, HewlettPackard: hp 48GII and all model numbers that begin with hp 40G or hp 49G. Calculators which have been modified such as calculators with paper tape (remove the tape), calculators that make noise (turn off the sound feature), calculators that can communicate wirelessly with other calculators (completely cover the infrared data port with heavy opaque material, such as duct tape or electrician's tape (includes HewlettPackard HP38G series and HP48G)), calculators that have power cords (remove all power/electrical cords) are acceptable.
Homework Problems
The homework assignments listed on the assignment sheet may be modified slightly as we go. I will post the assignment sheet online on my website and will keep it updated as need be.
Help
Everyone needs help from time to time. The key to to get help right awaywhen you need it! Here are some ways to get help:
 Ask a question in class
 Ask me during office hours
 Ask me in an email
 Get help in the Math Room (SCI A113A)
 Study with others
 Go to the group tutoring
Disability Accommodations
Reasonable accommodations are available for students who have a documented disability. Please notify me during the first week of class of any accommodations needed for the course. All accommodations must be approved through Disability Services, located at 103 Student Services Center or.
