Line # 12923
Instructor John Jones
Office Wexler 729
Tuesdays and Thursdays
and by appointment.
A course in calculus.
Text Doing Mathematics, by Steven Galovich (2nd edition). We will
cover, in order: Sections 2.1-2.3, 3.1-3.6, 4.1-4.4,
and as much of chapter 5 as time permits.
Grading There will be two tests, homework, and a final.
The final grade will be computed by the following recipe:
20% per test (40% total)
The weights on the left side will be used to get a final average:
Final avg = 0.30· (homework percent) + 0.40· (test average) + 0.30 · (final exam percent)
Then final grades will be determined by the following chart.
Tests Tests will be given in class on
Test 1: March 2
Test 2: April 13
Homework assignments will appear on the course homework page. Each
student is expected to do and understand every problem assigned.
Problems to be submitted for grading will be underlined. Papers are
due on the date shown on the homework page, and should be turned in
before the start of class on the day they are due.
Late homework is
not accepted, and homework may not be submitted electronically.
At the end of the semester, the three lowest homework scores for each
student will be dropped before averaging the others. For some students,
the dropped scores will be assignments which are missed for reasons
of illness, or because they were not submitted in time.
Homework submitted on the due date after class has
started, but before the class period is over, will be accepted, but
will have 10 points deducted from their score for being late.
If you need to miss a test for exceptional circumstances such as a
documented illness, emergency, or a University-sanctioned activity,
contact the instructor at the earliest possible time. If an exam must
be taken late and is not excused, a late penalty will be assessed to
its score of a minimum of 15%.
Final Exam The final will be comprehensive and take place at
its regularly scheduled time. I believe this to be Tuesday, May 2,
2:30-4:20 PM, in our regular classroom, but students are
responsible for checking that this is the correct date and time.
In general, final exams cannot be rescheduled by ASU policy. See
ACD 304-01 for details.
Academic honesty is expected of all students in all examinations, papers,
laboratory work, academic transactions and records. The possible sanctions
include, but are not limited to, appropriate grade penalties, course
failure (indicated on the transcript as a grade of E), course failure due
to academic dishonesty (indicated on the transcript as a grade of XE), loss
of registration privileges, disqualification and dismissal.
See the ASU policy,
in particular student obligations.
