**Course Description: **A survey of basic concepts of calculus for students who want an introduction to calculus, but who do not need the depth of MATH 2301

**Prerequisites: **MATH 113 or MATH 1200 or Placement level 2 or higher.

**Note: **Students cannot earn credit for both MATH 1350 and either of MATH 2301

**Calculators ** will not be allowed on exams.

**Websites with Useful Math Software: ** In lectures, I often use a computer for graphing and calculating. The software that I use is free and is easily accessible at the following list of links. I use the same software in my office, instead of a calculator. You are encouraged to use this same free software instead of a calculator. (Link)

**Student Resources (Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction (SI)): **There are many math-related resources for students on the Athens Campus of Ohio University. For information, go to the following link. (Link)

**Special Needs: **If you have physical, psychiatric, or learning disabilities that require accommodations, please let me know as soon as possible so that your needs may be appropriately met.

**Grading: **During the semester, you will accumulate points:

Quizzes (best 8 of 10 quizzes, 20 points each): | 160 points possible |

In-Class Exams (best 3 of 4 exams, 180 points each): | 540 points possible |

Cumulative Final Exam: | 300 points possible |

Total: | 1000 points possible |

At the end of the semester, your Total will be converted to your Course Grade:

Total Score | Percentage | Grade | Interpretation |
---|---|---|---|

900 - 1000 | 90% - 100% | A | You mastered all concepts, with no significant gaps |

850 - 899 | 85% - 89.9% | A- | |

800 - 849 | 80% - 84.9% | B+ | You mastered all essential concepts and many advanced concepts, but have some significant gaps. |

750 - 799 | 75% -79.9% | B | |

700 - 749 | 70% - 74.9% | B- | |

650 - 699 | 65% - 69.9% | C+ | You mastered most essential concepts and some advanced concepts, but have many significant gaps. |

600 - 649 | 60% - 64.9% | C | |

550 - 599 | 55% - 59.9% | C- | |

400 - 439 | 40% - 54.9% | D | You mastered some essential concepts. |

0 - 399 | 0% - 39.9% | F | You did not master essential concepts. |

The Learning Outcomes for this course can be found at the following link: (Learning Outcomes)

**Course Structure: **One learns math primarily by trying to solve problems. This course is designed to provide structure for you as you learn to solve problems, and to test how well you have learned to solve them. This structure is provided in the following ways.

**Suggested Exercises:**In the course packet, you will find a table of suggested exercises. The list can also be found at the following link: (list of suggested exercises) The goal of the course is for you to be able to solve the exercises on this list. These exercises are not to be turned in and are not graded, but you should do as many of them as possible and keep your solutions in a notebook for study.**Textbook Readings:**The textbook is well-written and has lots of good examples. Reading it is the key to learning new concepts, seeing examples that use them, and seeing solutions to problems that are similar to some of the suggested exercises. To succeed in the course, you will need to read the textbook.**Lectures:**In lecture, I will sometimes highlight material that is particularly important, sometimes present material in a manner different from the presentation in the book, and sometimes solve sample problems. We have 38 lectures, totalling 2715 minutes. It is impossible to cover the entire content of the course in 2715 minutes, and the lectures are not meant to do that. Lectures are meant to be a supplement to your reading the textbook and solving problems.**Quizzes:**The quizzes will be taken from the textbook examples and matched problems. This is meant to be an incentive for you to read the textbook and understand the examples. Your 2 lowest quiz scores will be dropped, but I will not give make-up quizzes for any reason. That is, it does not matter whether you miss a quiz because you are sick, or taking part in an Ohio University activity, or tending to a personal or family emergency, or simply skipping class. There will be no make-up quizzes.**Exams:**The exams will be made up of problems taken from the suggested exercises and class drills.

**Attendance: **Attendance is required. Data from past quarters shows a very strong correlation between attendance and grades. Furthermore, lectures in this course include a substantial amount of small group discussions. Students who have been absent are often unable to contribute to group discussions when they return. This degrades the quality of the group discussions. For these reasons, I have a strict policy about absences: **Students who are absent more than six times will automatically fail the course.** It does not matter whether you are absent because you are sick, taking part in an Ohio University activity, tending to a personal or family emergency, or simply skipping class. Six is the number. If you miss a class, it is your responsibility to copy a classmate's notes and study them. I will not use office hours to teach topics discussed in class to students who were absent.

**Outside Activities: **A university offers many opportunities in addition to courses, and I encourage you to take advantage of these. But be careful about taking on activities that conflict with class meetings or interfere with your studying. And beware of terms like "Approved Ohio University Activities". Those terms simply refer to activities that are run by Ohio University departments or organizations. The fact that an activity is run by an Ohio University department or organization does not mean that it is somehow a substitute for class time or class work. This course is designed so that if you read the textbook, do the online homework, attend lectures, and take the exams, you will have a very good chance of getting a good grade. Any outside activity that interferes with your attendance or your studying for this class will affect your performance on homework and exams and will thus affect your course grade. If you are taking part in an "Approved Ohio University Activity" that will cause you to miss class, it is important that you discuss this absence with me in advance to determine whether or not you will be eligible to make-up an exam that may be scheduled on that day. I will never offer a make-up exam for an activity-related absence that was not discussed with me in advance.

**Final Exam: **This course has a cumulative final exam.

**Tentative Schedule: **The schedule may need to be changed as the semester progresses, either because of weather delays or because of changes in the pace of the lectures.
