Spring Semester 2004 Time and Place (Lectures): 8:00-8:50 MWF, CP 222. Instructor: Alberto Corso, POT 969, 257-3167, corso@ms.uky.edu and www.ms.uky.edu/~corso. Office Hours: 9:00-9:50 MW and
11:00-11:50 Th in POT 969 or by appointment.
Time and Place (Recitations): Our
class is made of three sections Teaching Assistants:
Textbook: Calculus (3rd edition), by James Stewart, ISBN 0-534-21798-2. Material and Exams:
In this second semester of Calculus, we will begin by introducing the
logarithmic and exponential functions, and their applications to growth
and decay problems. We will then learn about several techniques of
integration. Sequences, series and representation of functions as
power series will constitute the major portion of the
second half of the semester. Throughout the course we
will also give an indication of the sorts of problems that can be solved
using calculus.
Other important dates:
Homework and Quizzes: The homework assignments will not be collected. There will be weekly quizzes (administered during recitation) with problems taken from the homework assignments. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you do and understand all the homework problems. In this way you will succeed in the quizzes, in the exams and in the class! Grades: There are a total of 550 points in the course with 400 earned on 4 departmental exams and 150 points (quizzes) assigned by the instructors. In this model an A requires at least 495 points (>90% or above), B at least 440 (80% or above), C at least 385 (70% or above), D at least 330 (60% or above), E for anything else. MA194: In addition, to the 4 hours of credit for MA114, the department offers one additional hour of credit as MA194 on a pass/fail basis. You will pass MA194 if you pass MA114 and have 0, 1 or 2 unexcused absences. If you have more unexcused absences, you may fail MA194. Your section number for MA194 should equal your section number for MA114. If you drop or change sections of MA114, please make sure to also drop or change sections of MA194. Mathematics Resource Center: Teaching assistants will be in the Mathematics Resource Center to help with Calculus. This resource center is in the basement of the Classroom Building. A schedule will be circulated early in the semester and will eventually be located at www.ms.uky.edu/~mrc. Calculators: Students may use a graphing calculator on exams and homework. Students may not use a machine with symbolic manipulation capabilities on exams. Thus, no TI-89's, TI-92's, no HP-48's or laptop computers may be used on exams. Please see the lecturer if you have any questions as to whether a particular machine may be used on a test. Absences: You should attend class. If you must miss a recitation and are registered for MA194, you must explain your absence to your teaching assistant. Otherwise, your absence will be marked as unexcused and this may lead to failing MA194. |
