**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:**To succeed in the course, you will need to read the textbook, study the examples in it, and work on the "matched problems" that accompany the examples. Many of the examples are exactly like exercises on your suggested exercise list.**Lectures:**In lecture, I will sometimes highlight textbook 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 48 lectures, totaling 2640 minutes. It is not possible to cover the entire content of the course in 2640 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, study the examples in it, and work on the "matched problems". Your two lowest quiz scores will be dropped.**Exams:**The exams will be made up of problems based on suggested exercises and class drills.

**ID-Swipe System for Attendance: **Attendance will be recorded by an automated system in the lecture hall. When you arrive at the lecture hall, you will swipe your O.U. Student ID through a machine by the door. The system will start recording ID swipes 10 minutes before the scheduled start of class, and will stop recording them 5 minutes after the scheduled end of class. If you swipe your ID during that time interval, my records will show that you swiped your ID on that day and will show the time.

**Attendance Policy: **Attendance is required for all lectures and exams. We have a total of 56 class meetings, and you should swipe your ID during each of those meetings. **If you miss more than 16 ID swipes, your course grade will be an F.** That includes, sick days, University Activity days, personal or family emergency days, days that you skipped class, or days that you were in class and forgot your ID, or had your ID and forgot to swipe it, or had your ID but it was defective.

**Missing Class: **If you miss a class for any reason, it is your responsibility to copy someone’s notes or download my notes from the course web page, and study them. I will not use office hours to teach topics discussed in class to students who were absent.

**Missing a Quiz or Exam Because of Illness: **If you are too sick to take a quiz or exam, then you must

- send me an e-mail before the quiz/exam, telling me that you are going to miss it because of illness, then
- then go to the Hudson Student Health Center.
- Later, you will need to bring me documentation from Hudson showing that you were treated there.

**Missing Quizzes or Exams Because of University Activity: **If you have a University Activity that conflicts with one of our quizzes or exams, you must contact me before the quiz or exam to discuss arrangements for a make-up. I will need to see documentation of your activity. If you miss a quiz or an exam because of a University Activity without notifying me in advance, you will not be given a make-up.
