THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT EL PASO


FOR THE

SPRING 2012 SEMESTER


This course is 100% ONLINE. You will need a computer with an internet connection to take this course. You may also view the material via an iPhone, iTouch, or iPad. Because the screens on the iPhone and iTouch are small, unless you have spectacular eyesight, you will need either an iPad or a computer for the discussion board on Blackboard and homework submissions in Web Assign. All homework, chapter exams, optional replacement quizzes, final exam and replacement final exam will be taken online from computers of your choice. The optional replacement quizzes, and final exams are four-hour timed exams. Once you open the site, the clock starts. If you leave the computer, the clock keeps ticking. So dont start these quizzes/exams until you have the four hours to devote to the task. The four-hour timed online final exam will be posted at 8:00 am on Monday and is due by 11:30 pm on Friday. The optional replacement final exam will be posted on May 14, 2012 at 8:00 am and is due on May 16, 2011 by 11:30 pm. If the grade on the replacement final exam is higher than the grade submitted as your course grade, I will submit a grade change to the grade on the replacement final exam.

There are 30 homework Web Assign homework assignments (two per week) and you have three tries at each homework assignment; the last

submission is the score that is counted. Every homework assignment has a code. Under Problem Solutions in Blackboard, you will find a similar problem identified by the same code worked out in detail. There are four weekend web Assign exams posted at 8:00 am on a Saturday morning and due by 11:30 pm the following Sunday evening. You have one try at each problem. Once you open the exam, you may not access the Math 1411 Blackboard until you have submitted your exam. If you do, your exam score will be voided. There are ten optional replacement Quizzes taken in Web Assign. These optional replacement quizzes are four-hour timed quizzes and you have one try. The clock starts the moment you open the quiz and does not stop until the clock runs out. The grade on these replacement quizzes will replace any lower or missing grade (assignment or weekend exam) taken before the quiz date. The final exam is a four-hour timed Web Assign exam and you have one try. You must score at least 50 on this final exam and have an overall score of at least 70 to pass this course. There is an optional replacement final exam. It is a four-hour timed Web Assign exam and you have one try. If your grade on this exam is higher than your course average, it will replace the course average. Please email me a special password that you create for this course only. I will post all the grades of the class where students will be identified only by their self-created passwords. Only you and I will know your password; therefore, you are assured that no one else will know your grade unless you decide to share your grade or password. I want you to see your grades so that you can keep track of your average and let me know if I have recorded a grade incorrectly (it happens), and I want you to see what everyone else is doing in the class .

If you miss 10 homework assignments/exams, you will be dropped from the course for non-participation.

The course instructor is Dr. Nancy Marcus. You can reach her at anytime via the Blackboard Discussion Board (public forum) or her email at nancymarcus@utep.edu (private message). The Online Peer Leader for this course is Nathan Cintron.

The course is run through both the Blackboard and the Web Assign environments. The text is an e-text. However, if you are more comfortable with a hard copy of the book, you can purchase a hard copy. You can purchase the e-text at the UTEP bookstore or at coursesmart.com, and the Web Assign code at the UTEP Bookstore or webassign.com. You will be given temporary access to Web Assign but will need the code within two weeks. The e-text we will se in this course is the 9th Edition of Calculus by Larson. Please purchase the book and Web Assign code on or before the first day of class. The Written Lectures in Blackboard are essentially the book expanded and written in conversational tone. All written lectures, video lectures, problem solutions, as well as the e-text and web assign can be accessed through Blackboard. All homework and replacement quizzes and exam are taken online inside the Web Assign environment. The weekend exams and final exam are taken in Web Assign. The Discussion Board within Blackboard is a forum where students post questions and the instructor and peer leader answer these questions.

The Blackboard Discussion groups are a location within the Blackboard environment where students can talk to each other. To must participate in the Blackboard Discussion Board at least four times a week. Every homework problem within Web Assign has a code located in either the left-hand or right-hand upper corners of the page. The code contains the chapter, section, and problem number of a worked-out problem in Blackboard under Course Materials, under Problem Solutions. For example, if your code reads LarCalc9 4.2.011, it means that you can find a similar problem worked out in detail in Blackboard under Course Materials, Problem Solutions, Chapter 4, Section 2, Problem 11. Your username and password for Blackboard are your UTEP username and password. Your username and password for Web Assign are your UTEP ID number. If you live in the area, you are invited to stop by my office in Bell Hall 100 for help. However, as the Associate Dean of Science, I have lots of appointments, and you will have to work around these appointments.

What is your time commitment to this course? On average, 16 hours per week if your mathematics background is good, to 20 to 24 hours per week if your mathematics background is weak. Where did I get these numbers? For every hour of lecture, you should be spending three hours doing homework.

Homework with specific due dates are posted in Web Assign (see below). If you have questions about the e-text, the video and written lectures, the worked problems and examples, post those questions to the Discussion Board. The Discussion Board is divided into assignments, exams, and replacement quizzes. Questions and answers may be viewed by everyone in the class. Our objective is to use the Discussion Board as if the instructor were in a classroom answering your questions at the board.

One inappropriate posting will mean dismissal from the Discussion Board for a few days. A series of inappropriate postings to the Discussion Board will mean dismissal from the course. You will have to show your work on the weekend exams using a digital pen. You write your work, save it to Word, then save it to a pdf file, then upload it to Web Assign. This ensures that you will be given partial credit for your work even if your answer is wrong. Several times during the semester, you will be asked to participate in an evaluation of the course, the instructor, the online peer leader. We want you to be honest with these evaluations because it will help us improve the course as the semester progresses. Based on the previous surveys, I created the video lectures that are posted in Blackboard. Watching oneself on TV is a very humbling experience, so please bear in mind that I am amateur in this area. Instructor: Dr. Nancy Marcus Online Peer Leader: Nathan Cintron

e-Text Test: Required: Calculus 9e by Larson, Hostetler, Edwards (note: The Written Lectures in Blackboard are essentially the text expanded and written in conversation tone.) Digital Pen: Some brands to consider are livescribe and Logipen. With Logipen you can use the pen to write your work (or notes from another course) on regular paper, then upload them. With a livescribe pen, you need special paper and it also has a

recording device so that if you are in another course, you can record the professors lecture as well as taking notes. I am sure that there are other digital pens out there. If you choose not show your work on the weekend exams, you will not be awarded partial credit for any problem.

Graphing Calculator: Your choice. Homework Environment: Required: Web Assign Code You have to purchase this within one week of starting the course. Purchase from their web site and you can also purchase the e-text there. Course Content: A Preview of Precalculus (found in Written Lectures in Blackboard), Chapters 1 through 5 of e-book, lectures, video tutorial, and Review Material: A Review of Precalculus: 28 Lectures covering topics from functions to partial fractions Chapter 1 Limits and Their Properties: 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 A Preview of Calculus - Finding Limits Graphically and Numerically - Evaluating Limits Analytically - Continuity and One-Side Limits 1.5 - Infinite Limits Chapter 2 Differentiation: 2.1 The Derivative and the Tangent Line Problem 2.2 - Basic Differentiation Rules and Rates of Change 2.3 Product and Quotient Rules and Higher-Order Derivatives 2.4 The Chain Rule 2.5 Implicit Differentiation

2.6 Related Rates Chapter 3 Application of Differentiation: 3.1 Extrema on an Interval 3.2 - Rolles Theorem and the Mean Value Theorem 3.3 Increasing and Decreasing Functions and the First Derivative Test 3.4 Concavity and the Second Derivative Test 3.5 Limits at Infinity 3.6 A Summary of Curve Sketching 3.7 Optimization Problems 3.8 Newtons Method 3.9 Differentials Chapter 4 Integration: 4.1 Antiderivatives and Indefinite Integration 4.2 - Area 4.3 Riemann Sums and Definite Integrals 4.4 The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus 4.5 Integration by Substitution 4.6 Numerical Integration Chapter 5 Logarithmic, Exponential, and Other Transcendental Functions: 5.1 The Natural Logarithmic Function: Differentiation 5.2 - The Natural Logarithmic Function: Integration 5.3 Inverse Functions 5.4 Exponential Functions: Differentiation and Integration 5.5 Bases Other Than e and Applications 5.6 Inverse Trigonometric Functions: Differentiation 5.7 Inverse Trigonometric Functions: Integration 5.8 Hyperbolic Functions Other Partial Fractions

Web Assign Code: Required: If you are repeating the course, your Web Assign code is still good. Calculator: Required: Any graphing calculator or you can use the WAPlot in Web Assign. There are also links below to free online graphing calculators. Grade: 1/3 of your course grade is based on your online homework average. 1/3 of your course grade is based on the average grade of the four end-ofchapter online exams End-of-Chapter exams dates are listed below. 1/3 of your course grade is based on your final exam grade. You must make at least 50 on your final exam and at least 70 overall to pass this course. 90 100 = A, 80 89 = B. 70 79 = C, 60 69 equals D, and 0 59 equals F. If you want to count this course toward the core or as a prerequisite for other courses, the minimum grade is C. Second Chance: If you do not like your course grade, a second computer-administered Web Assign final exam will be offered (see dates above). If the second try at the final exam results in a score higher than your course average, I will initiate a grade change. Make-Up Policy: There are no make-ups for specific missed homework assignments, replacement quizzes, exams, or the final exam. However, during the semester, I will post ten, threehour timed, replacement quizzes which are optional. If you choose to take one, the score will replace one lower or missing homework or weekend exam score. If you miss the final exam or you do not like your course grade, there is an optional Course

Replacement Exam. If the score on this exam is higher than your course average, it will replace your course average. Your weekly assignments are posted at the beginning of the week; one is due mid-week and one is due at the end of the week. Chapter exams are posted on Saturday morning and due Sunday night. Academic Integrity Policy: Cheating on homework, quizzes, or tests will be dealt with in accordance with University regulations. This means automatic referral to any adjudication by the Dean of Students. During the final exam, you may not use notes, text, or an unauthorized calculator, and you may not at any time speak to other students or refer to their papers. Course Description: Limits and continuity; the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus; definition of the derivative of a function and techniques of differentiation; applications of the derivative to maximizing or minimizing a function; the chain rule, mean value theorem, and rate of change problems; curve sketching; definite and indefinite integration of algebraic, trigonometric, and transcendental functions, with an application to calculation of areas. Prerequisite: MATH 1508Pre-Calculus Math or equivalent preparation Course Objectives: Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: 1. Develop solutions for tangent and area problems using the concepts of limits, derivatives, and integrals. 2. Draw graphs of algebraic and transcendental functions considering limits, continuity, and differentiability at a point. 3. Determine whether a function is continuous and/or differentiable at a point using limits. 4. 5. Use differentiation rules to differentiate algebraic and transcendental functions. Identify appropriate calculus concepts and techniques to provide mathematical models of real-world situations and determine solutions to applied problems.

6. 7.

Evaluate definite integrals using the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Articulate the relationship between derivatives and integrals using the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.

Steps to Cover for each section of each chapter of the required text: Step 1: Read the e-textbook covering a specific chapter and section and watch the videos of the various pages. (the textbook is accessible through Web Assign). Step 2: View the video lectures and read the written lectures, both created by Dr. Marcus, covering a specific chapter and section (the lectures are accessible through both Blackboard). Step 3: Review the Problem Solutions covering problems in a specific chapter and section (the tutorials are accessible through both Blackboard and Web Assign). There is a code in the upper left-hand corner of each problem. It lists the chapter and the problem you will find a similar problem posted under Problem Solutions in Blackboard. Step 4: Work the problems assigned in Web Assign (the problems are accessible through Web Assign). A common problem students experience at this step is what I call the Video Game Syndrome. The students try to do the problems in their head. The most efficient way to do your home work is to work the problem out on paper and then look for the correct answer among the choices. You will be allowed three tries for each homework assignment; the last submission will be the grade that is counted. Do not exit Web Assign without saving your homework; if you do, you work will be lost and one of the three tries will have been used. Step 5: If you think your answer in Web Assign is correct and Web Assign has counted it wrong, you do not need to contact me. The Peer Leader will check all the problems counted wrong for all students and award credit if appropriate. If your problem is scored wrong by Web Assign and you do

not know why, work out the problem in detail on a piece of paper, take a photograph of your work with your cell phone and email it to me and I will analyze your work. Step 6: If you experience problems with the homework after completing steps 1 through 5, post a question to the Discussion Board. The postings in the Discussion Board will be categorized by chapters; therefore, click on the chapter for which you have a question. Step 7: An exam will be administered after Chapters 1 & 2, after Chapter 3, after Chapter 4, and after Chapter 5; you have just one try, all helpful hints and links to the e-book will be disabled, and you may not ask for help.

Note: All homework assignments may contain material from previously assigned homework, if, in the opinion of the instructor, you need more work in these areas. Examples of how a replacement quiz works: I will periodically send you a summary of your grades.

The first number represents how many assignments/exams you have missed. If you have missed any, the cell is highlighted in brown with the number of missed assignments/exams.

The second set of numbers represent your homework assignments; if a cell is highlighted in pink, you did not turn in that assignment.

The third set of numbers represent your exam scores; if a cell is highlighted in pink, you have missed that exam.

The fourth set of numbers represents your homework average, your exam average, and a cell for your final exam.

The next number represents your course average as of the date I sent you the summary.

The last set of numbers represents the scores on your replacement quizzes. If a replacement quiz replaces a lower or missing assignment/exam, the assignment/exam and replacement quiz will be colored red.

Example 1: The highlighted cell indicates you did not turn in that homework. The red number within the highlighted cell indicates that you score 100 on a replacement quiz and it replaced the no grade of a missed homework. Before Replacement Quiz: 1 65 80 100 50 61 50 56

After Replacement Quiz: 1 65 100 80 100 50 86 50 68 100

Note that you would much rather have had the Exam 1 grade of 50 be replaced by the replacement score of 100 because the four exams count 1/3 of your grade and the 30 assignments counts 1/3 of your grade. However, the lower grade was an assignment. It did bring up your overall average from 56 to 68. However, if you had not missed the assignment and replaced the low Exam score with the 100 your average would have been brought up to 81. If you have a dual lowest grade on an assignment and on an exam, the replacement is given to the assignment. Therefore, since you have three tries at every assignment, try to get good scores on the homework assignments and save the replacement quizzes for the exams. However, it is your call.
