You understand that changes may be made to the syllabus in order to meet the needs of the students in the class and that it is your responsibility to attend class every time it meets to keep abreast of any such changes.

Important Deadlines:

We will use the math department computer lab (bldg 14/room 2743) for  several of our class meetings during the semester. The lab  hours will be announced in class.  Some computers in  ITS computing site on campus have Maple. 

Course Work:

Calculator: I will be using the TI-83.You are free to use a TI /Casio CFX-9850GB PLUS graphing calculator, however it is your responsibility to learn how to use it.Class time will be spent on how to graph, plot points, find regression curves, numeric derivatives and numeric integrals, etc. only for the TI-83.I highly recommend using the same calculator as I will be using this semester. Calculators with QWERTY keyboards or those that do symbolic algebra such as the TI-89, or the Casio FX2 or 9970G cannot be used in class or during an exam. 

TECHNOLOGY: A graphing calculator may be needed for homework and in class exams. Projects will be done on Maple in the computer lab.

ATTENDANCE is required; parts of this class may be in a cooperative learning format. You will work in groups and part of your grade will be assigned to the group. You will be assigned group work in and out of class. Repeated absences (more than 4 unexcused) will result in lowering your grade in the course. Students absent for university sponsored events or must make arrangements for making up the work they will miss before they are absent.

HOMEWORK is required. Problems to be turned in are assigned in class. Reminder: I suggests that a minimum of 3 hours of homework should be completed for each hour of class. Late homework will not be accepted.

General Education Outcomes:

MAC 2313  is designed to satisfy the following criteria from the Central Student Outcomes of General Education:

We will reach these goals by applying both quantitative and qualitative techniques from Calculus to solve problems from mathematics and physics.  Calculus utilizes the skills you developed in College Algebra. The solution to any mathematics problem is an argument that can be analyzed by anyone knowing the relevant mathematics.  Each answer you submit will be defended by the mathematical reasoning you used to get it.
