Course Learning Outcomes: As a result of taking this course, the student will be able to:

Demonstrate an understanding of the concepts of function, limit and continuity.

Determine the derivative of a function using the limit definition of the derivative.
Demonstrate an understanding of the meaning of the derivative as instantaneous rate of change and as the
slope of the tangent line.
Differentiate algebraic, trigonometric, logarithmic, exponential and inverse trigonometric functions, including
the differentiation of compositions of functions using the chain rule.
Differentiate functions that are defined implicitly.
Solve applications involving the derivative: Optimization and related rates, Newtons Method, and other
applications involving rates of change.
Identify the relative and absolute extreme of a function, as well as the inflection points, and graph a
given function with attention to the supporting techniques of Calculus.
Vectors and operations on vectors (dot product, cross product) to study points, lines and planes in space,
and vector valued functions.
Integrate functions involving algebraic, trigonometric, logarithmic, exponential and inverse trigonometric
functions, using u-substitution whenever needed.
Evaluate definite integrals using numerical integration techniques.

Academic Dishonesty Policy and Penalty for Violation:

Academic dishonesty includes the following actions, as well as other similar conduct aimed at making false
representation with respect to the student's academic performance:
(1) Cheating on an exam,
(2) Collaborating with others on work to be presented, if contrary to the stated rules of the course,
(3) Submitting, if contrary to the rules of the course, work previously submitted in another course,
(4) Knowingly and intentionally assisting another student in any of the above actions, including assistance in an
arrangement whereby work, classroom performance, examination, or other activity is submitted or performed
by a person other that the student under whose name the work is submitted or performed,
(5) Plagiarism.
Anyone of these actions will result in a grade of F for that assignment. Any other reoccurrence will result in a grade of
F for the course.
I will try to identify any cheating that may occur in the course. To avoid unfounded suspicion, please show all your work,
turn in any scratch paper you use in exams, and avoid sitting next to your study partners during exams.

Assignments, Tests, Quizzes and Final Exam Schedule, with percentage/points of grade:
There will be 8 quizzes worth 20 points each, 4 exams worth 100 points and a cumulative final exam worth 150 points.
Homework assignments are included in the syllabus. They will not be collected.

Class Policies
Attendance: Professors are required to take attendance.
Professors are required to take attendance. Attendance will be taken each class as part of record keeping. Students are
expected to attend all courses and course activities for which they are registered. Any class meeting missed, regardless
of cause, reduces the opportunity of learning and may adversely affect a students achievement in the course. Students
are required to attend at least 90% of the class meetings in order to receive credit for the course. An accurate record of
attendance will be kept for each course. If a student misses one-third or more of a class section, the student will be
counted absent. Three tardies will count as one absence. Leaving early is the same as being tardy.
Electronic Device Use and Email Policy:
Please turn off cell phones/electronic devices before coming to class.
Late Assignment Policy:
HW is due the day of the exam at the start of class. Late HW will not be accepted and will result in a grade of zero with
no chance of make-up
Make-up Exam Policy:
There are no make-up exams. For circumstances beyond the students control such as serious illness, death of a close
relative, final exam will replace the missing assignment provided prior notification has been given. However, the final
can only replace one exam. Quizzes cannot be made up.
Withdrawal Policy:
Students must withdraw themselves from class if they wish. I will not do this for you. The last day to withdraw from a
College course with a "W" grade in this course is March 29, 2016. It is the responsibility of the student to use the
PantherWeb system or visit a campus Registrars office to withdraw. An official withdrawal entitles the student to a
grade of "W" in the class.
Minimum Requirements: See grading policy.
Methods Of Instruction: Lecture, Quizzes, Group Work
