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.

Prerequisites:
A grade of C or higher in MATH 1113 or placement by the Mathematics Assessment Test.

Course objectives:
A first course in Calculus. Limits, derivatives and integrals of algebraic and trigonometric functions, tangent lines, instantaneous rate of change, maxima, minima and graphing, related rates, linear motion. Also included: definite integrals, area between curves, moments, work, and volumes of rotation.
Upon completing this course students should be able to:
1. Find limits of functions and determine continuity of functions.
2. Find derivatives of algebraic and some trigonometric functions, and use derivatives to solve applied problems.
3. Find integrals of some algebraic and trigonometric functions, and use integrals to solve applied problems.

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 examinations will be valued at 20% each, quizzes will total to 15%, and the final will be valued at 25%.

Honesty:
SPSU has an Honor Code and a procedure for handling cases when academic misconduct is alleged. All students should be aware of them. Information about the Honor Code and the misconduct procedure may be found at http://www.spsu.edu/honorcode/.

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.

Special needs:
I will attempt to accommodate all students with special needs to the best of my ability, but it is the responsibility of the student to make their needs known to me. Students with disabilities who believe they may need accommodations in this class are encouraged to contact the person working with disabilities at 678-915-7244 as soon as possible to better assure that such accommodations are implemented in a timely fashion.

Assistance:
For help with your homework, or questions about the lectures, you have a lot of options. I will take a limited number of questions during class, as time permits.
