A Course in the General Education Program
Program Description: The General Education at Kennesaw State University program offers a comprehensive series of interrelated courses in the liberal arts and sciences for all Kennesaw State University students. Whereas the major program contributes depth within a chosen specialization, the General Education core provides breadth of understanding within a variety of disciplines. Together, the General Education core and the major degree program offer students the knowledge, skills, and perspectives to become informed and engaged citizens living in a diverse, global community.

 

Program Goals: The General Education Program at KSU has four goals. During the course of the program, students should achieve the following:

Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of general education disciplines.
Demonstrate proficiency in communication.
Demonstrate skills in inquiry, critical thinking, analysis, and problem solving through scholarly and/or creative activity across the general education disciplines.
Demonstrate an understanding of ethics, diversity, and a global perspective.
 

MATH 1190 satisfies one of Kennesaw State University’s general education program requirements. It addresses the Applied Math learning outcome. This learning outcome states: 

Applied Math:  Students will demonstrate an ability to effectively apply symbolic representations to model and solve problems.

 For more information about KSU’s General Education program requirements and associated learning outcomes, please visit the topic "University-Wide Degree Requirements" in the KSU Undergraduate Catalog.

 Course Description

MATH 1190 – Calculus I

4 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 4 Credit Hours
Prerequisite:  A grade of “C” or better grade in MATH 1112 or MATH 1113 or approval of department chair.

This course is the first in the calculus curriculum and introduces the central concepts of calculus. Topics include limits, continuity, derivatives of algebraic and transcendental functions of one variable, applications of these concepts and a brief introduction to the integral of a function.

Expected Learning Outcomes

Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:

1. Evaluate limits and continuity of functions.

2. Calculate derivatives of algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions.

3. Use derivatives to solve applied problems.

4. Calculate integrals of algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions.

5. Use integrals to solve applied problems.

Accommodations for students with disabilities

 "Important notice: Any student who, because of a disabling condition, may require some special arrangements in order to meet the course requirements should contact the instructor as soon as possible to arrange the necessary accommodations. Students should present appropriate verification from KSU Student Disability Services. No requirements exist that accommodations be made prior to completion of this approved University process."

 

Course Materials:

Textbook: Single Variable Calculus, Early Transcendentals, 1st edition, by Michael Sullivan and Kathleen Miranda.  This is available at the university bookstore and will likely come bundled with a WebAssign code.

Technology policy: Students will want access to an internet-connected computer; there are several computer labs for student use (e.g., in the library).  The TI-83/84 calculator is used for this course. You may NOT share calculators during quizzes or exams. The use of cell phones, pagers, text or other messaging devices is not allowed during class.

D2L Brightspace: Course information will be posted on D2L, periodically. 

Online Resource:  WebAssign (includes access to the complete eText version of Single Variable Calculus, Early Transcendentals, 1st edition). Used for required homework. New books purchased at the KSU and General bookstores should come bundled with a student access code for WebAssign.  Anyone just wanting to purchase the student access code for WebAssign (without purchasing the textbook) can either purchase the WebAssign code at the bookstore, or present their plastic online at the WebAssign website to subscribe. Temporary access while awaiting financial aid is available at the website. Access to the course’s specific copy of WebAssign will be:

 

www.webassign.net  and enter class key:

4pm section:  kennesaw 0873 3188

6pm section:  kennesaw 2086 8017

 

Homework, Quizzes and Examinations

 

Homework will be assigned daily, but will not be collected without advance warning. Questions on homework problems can be answered in Office Hours and/or in class. Quizzes will occur frequently, and occasionally without warning. Quiz questions will typically come from homework problems. There will be three in-class examinations, and a final.

 

Grading Policy

 

In-class tests will be valued at 20% each, quizzes and take-home assignments will total to 15%, and the final will be valued at 25%.

 

Absence

 

If I am contacted with an acceptable excuse before the date of the quiz or exam, then a makeup can be arranged. An acceptable excuse is in writing, contains the student's name, the date of the absence, a signature from a faculty member sponsoring the trip, contact information for the faculty member, and a brief mention of the nature of the trip.

Withdrawal Policy
 

Students who find that they cannot continue in college for the entire semester after being enrolled, because of illness or any other reason, need to complete an online form. To completely or partially withdraw from classes at KSU, a student must withdraw online at www.kennesaw.edu, under Owl Express, Student Services.

 

The date the withdrawal is submitted online will be considered the official KSU withdrawal date which will be used in the calculation of any tuition refund or refund to Federal student aid and/or HOPE scholarship programs. It is advisable to print the final page of the withdrawal for your records. Withdrawals submitted online prior to midnight on the last day to withdraw without academic penalty will receive a “W” grade. Withdrawals after midnight will receive a “WF”. Failure to complete the online withdrawal process will produce no withdrawal from classes. Call the Registrar’s Office at 770-423-6200 during business hours if assistance is needed.

 

Students may, by means of the same online withdrawal and with the approval of the university Dean, withdraw from individual courses while retaining other courses on their schedules. This option may be exercised up until Wednesday February 27.

 

This is the date to withdraw without academic penalty for Spring Term, 2019 classes. Failure to withdraw by the date above will mean that the student has elected to receive the final grade(s) earned in the course(s). The only exception to those withdrawal regulations will be for those instances that involve unusual and fully documented circumstances.

 

Academic Integrity

 

Every KSU student is responsible for upholding the provisions of the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities, as published in the Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs.  Section II of the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities addresses the University's policy on academic honesty, including provisions regarding plagiarism and cheating, unauthorized access to University materials, misrepresentation/falsification of University records or academic work, malicious removal, retention, or destruction of library materials, malicious/intentional misuse of computer facilities and/or services, and misuse of student identification cards.  Incidents of alleged academic misconduct will be handled through the established procedures of the Department of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity (SCAI), which includes either an "informal" resolution by a faculty member, resulting in a grade adjustment, or a formal hearing procedure, which may subject a student to the Code of Conduct's minimal one semester suspension requirement.
