Book:
 
Calculus with Applications 10
th
 Edition
 by Lial, Greenwell and Ritchey. (
Please note that you will want the Course Compass MyMathLab Supplement that comes packaged with the textbook. You may wish to only purchase the Course Compass MyMathLab Supplement which includes an e-book or electronic version of the textbook. The UVM Bookstore offers both options, or you can purchase the Access Code directly from the publisher, Pearson. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY TAKEN MATH 019 AND YOU USED COURSE COMPASS MYMATHLAB, THEN YOU DO NOT NEED TO PURCHASE ANYTHING NEW.

Note:
 A majority of the work done for this course will be done via the UVM BlackBoard Computer System as well as the Course Compass MyMathLab System. Both of these systems are very intuitive to use, but I will have
step-by-step instructions
 posted along the way to ensure that students are do not feel overwhelmed by the technology. Furthermore, I understand that technology can be
 finicky 
 at times, so I plan to be very understanding if an issue arises causing an unforeseen problem. The purpose of the class is for each student to increase his or her level of knowledge, and again, I want to ensure that this is done as stress free as possible.

Course Description:
 
Fundamentals of Calculus II
 is the second course in a two course sequence. The underlying applications of integral calculus will be investigated along with some methods for doing multivariable calculus (chapters 7
 –
 13). The topics will include, but not be limited to,
basic integration
,
u-substitution
,
integration by parts
,
improper integrals
, various topics of integration including
 probability density functions and differential equations
, and
multivariable functions with multivariable calculus
. If time permits, we will also investigate a few topics related to
sequences and series
. The understanding will be discovered and shown via mathematical modeling of real world situations. An emphasis will be made to understand these new concepts graphically, numerically, verbally, and algebraically. The course work will involve some fairly intense computations and mathematical modeling, and it is required that students purchase or obtain an appropriate calculator.
A TI-83/84 Graphing calculator is highly recommended. Course Goals:
 The motivating goal behind this course is to introduce the
basic theory 
 and
concepts
 of
integral
calculus. Upon the
successful completion
 of the course: a student will have stronger quantitative reasoning skills, a student will have enhanced his or her problem solving techniques, and a student will have solid understanding of
 Applied Calculus
.
Method of Instruction:
 Due to the class being fully on-line, much of the instruction duties fall on the student. However, I will go out of my way to ensure that you are keeping up with the materials. I will do the following:
 
Post Detailed Section Notes, including worked out problems.
 
Post Brief Audio/Video Podcasts, highlighting some trickier problems.
 
Send Daily/Weekly Messages, reminding students of pending due-dates and dead-lines.
 
Be Available to meet with students for questions, either in-person at
my office on UVM’s Campus or
in a video-chat via the Free Utility Google+ Hangouts. 
 
Respond to any emails or questions within 24 hours.
 
In general, help you become a better mathematics student.
Note: On-Line classes are quite different than face-to-face classes; however, many students find the method of instruction much more liberating, as it allows them to move at their own pace. I will have all materials available at the start of class to facilitate those students who prefer to work at a quicker pace. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. You can choose to work at the pace stated in the schedule shown below, but if you would like to proceed at a quicker or slower
pace, please feel free to do so. However, please don’t forgo an
understanding of the material by moving at too quick of a pace. Lastly, if you feel that you are becoming overwhelmed by the material, please do not hesitate to send me an email, and I can work with you. Again, a majority of the effort in the class is put on
the student, so please don’t feel uncomfortable asking for help.
 
 
Grading:
 The grading system is as follows:
 
MyMathLab ASSIGNMENTS (25%)
---Following each section or sections covered, students must log on to the CourseCompass MyMathLab System and complete a companion HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT that follows the material posted on-line. You will be given
several
 attempts to answer each question, and you
can
 utilize the book and all of the aids offered within the CourseComass system to help solve the problems. Each assignment should take roughly 30 minutes to complete, and you will have several days to complete the assignments. All assignment grades will be equally weighted.
At the end of the semester, I will drop the lowest 4 ASSIGNMENT grades and average the remaining grades.
 
This average will count towards 25% of your final grade.
 
 
MyMathLab QUIZZES (25%)---
Following each section or sections covered, students must log on to the CourseCompass MyMathLab System and complete a companion QUIZ that follows the material posted on-line and the homework assignments. You will be given
TWO
 attempts to answer each question, and the student aids will
not
be available during the quiz. All quiz grades will be equally weighted.
At the end of the semester, I will drop the lowest 2 QUIZ grades and average the remaining grades.
 
This average will count towards 25% of your final grade.
 
 
MyMathLab TESTS (50%)
---There will be
two
TESTS during the course. The breakdown of what material appears on which test is shown below.
 
TEST 1 will be taken once you have completed the following sections: 7.1
 –
 7.5, 8.1
 –
 8.2, 8.4, 10.1
 –
 10.2.
 
 
TEST 2 will be taken once you have completed the following sections: 11.1
 –
 11.3, 9.1
 –
 9.3, 9.6, 12.1
 –
 12.2.
 
Following the completion of the stated sections, students must log on to the CourseCompass MyMathLab System and complete a companion TEST that follows the material posted on-line, the homework assignments and the quizzes. You will be given
TWO
 attempts to answer each question, and the student aids will
not
be available during the test.
Each test will count towards 25% of your final grade. Note:
 Based on the above given grading formula, you will end the class with a percentage grade. Depending on the value of this percentage grade, I will use the following table to issue your
Class Grade
.
All ASSIGNMENT, QUIZ and TEST grades will be posted on the CourseCompass MyMathLab System.
