Math 114 Spring 2018 Home Page
This course is a continuation of Math 113, Calculus I, and is designed for science and engineering majors. Math 114 develops a "toolbox" of techniques for computation and modeling that will help you understand and apply mathematical models of motion, chemical processes, biological processes, and circuits that you'll see in later pure and applied science courses. Building on the concepts of derivative and integral developed in Calculus I, we'll study:
Prerequisites: A grade of C or better in MA 113, MA 137, or MA 132.
Students may not receive credit for MA 114 and MA 138.
Learning outcomes: After completing this course students should clearly understand the fundamental concepts of one variable calculus and work effectively to solve problems using these concepts. Students should be able to:
In addition to the 4 hours of credit for MA 114, the department offers one additional hour of credit as MA 194 on a pass/fail basis. MA 194 offers problem-solving practice and weekly quizzes on Thursdays (except during exam weeks). See the course calendar for daily recitation activities and weekly quizzes.
You will pass MA 194 if you have at most 2 unexcused absences during MA 114 recitations and you pass MA 114. If you fail MA 114 you will automatically fail MA 194. If you pass MA114 but have 3 or more unexcused absences in recitations, you will fail MA194.

Mid-term grades will be posted on myUK by the deadline established in the Academic Calendar (http://www.uky.edu/Registrar/AcademicCalendar.htm).
The lecture portion of your grade is based on active participation in lecture (the Mon-Wed-Fri meetings). You will participate in class using your phone, laptop, or other device with an internet connection. You will need to create an iClicker Student account and purchase a subscription. When setting up your account, please use your student ID number without the leading 9, and your official UK email address. A 180-day subscription costs $14.99, and can be purchased directly through iClicker or by buying an access code from one of the university bookstores. If you have any difficulties with obtaining an account or with bringing a phone or laptop to class, please see your instructor. If you are using iClicker Polling in another class this term, you only need one subscription. You can access our iClicker course by using the iClicker on the Modules tab of our Canvas course page.
You can access our iClicker course by using the iClicker Polling link on the Modules tab of our Canvas course page. See https://www.iclicker.com/students for more information about iClicker polling. If you have any difficulties with access to your account or with bringing a phone or laptop to class, please see your instructor.
You will complete homework online with WeBWorK, which grades your solutions and records your scores. Each homework set comes as a personal version. When entering answers to the personal version the system will tell you whether your answer is correct or not. Only correct solutions to your personal version of the homework assignment give you credit!
The due date for each of these homework assignments is given on the corresponding web page as well as in the course calendar. Note that the WeBWorK sets are due at 11:59 PM on the due date. The due date on the WeBWorK server will be the most up-to-date information.
Late web homework will not be accepted. Shortly after the homework is due, solutions to many of the web homework problems will be made available through the WeBWorK server. If you have an unusual situation that prevents you from completing web homework, please contact your instructor. However, in general students will be expected to complete web homework even if they are traveling.
You can, at any time, find your current percentage score on WeBWorK by clicking Grades in the Main Menu on the left of most pages.
Suggestions for working web homework:
If you need help on reading, lecture materials, homework or studying, you can:
Please seek help promptly if you need it!
No late submissions of web homework will be accepted. If an emergency or illness takes you away from school, please discuss your situation with your professor and ask to be excused from an assignment, if appropriate. If you have a scheduled absence (travel or authorized university absence) you must still submit the web homework by the deadline.
Excused absences are granting according to University Senate Rule 22.214.171.124, which defines the following as acceptable reasons for excused absences: serious illness; illness or death of family member; University-related trips; major religious holidays; other circumstances your instructor finds to be "reasonable cause for nonattendance."The procedure for handling an absence varies based on whether you are missing an exam, a lecture class, or a recitation class.
Missing an exam:
Absences from exams should be reported (in advance) on this form. Students who have university excused absences or who have university-scheduled class conflicts with uniform examinations need to make arrangements to take exam at an alternate time. According to university policy, it is the student's responsibility to resolve scheduling conflicts with common hour exams, and this must be done at least TWO WEEKS before the exam. If you fail to inform your instructor of exam conflicts in timely manner, a penalty may be assessed on your exam score and you will be required to take the exam at one of the already scheduled alternate exam times. To avoid any problems, request alternate exams here as soon as you know you may have a conflict.
Missing a lecture class:
For lecture attendance, your clicker grade will automatically allow you to have up to five excused absences without providing any documentation. If you are absent, please collect your documentation in a safe place and keep careful count. If you accumulate six or more EXCUSED absences from lecture, you should provide official documentation for ALL of the absences to your lecturer within one week of the sixth excused absence (and for any absence thereafter).
Missing a recitation class:
Recitation attendance is required. Because recitation meets only once a week, you should make every effort to attend. For policies about handling excused absences, see your recitation instructor for details. Contact information for your recitation instructors is here. Generally, you will be required to make up the work you miss in a timely fashion.
If you have documented disability that requires academic accommodations, please see your lecturer as soon as possible during scheduled office hours. In order to receive accommodations in this course, you must provide a Letter of Accommodation from the Disability Resource Center (Suite 407, Multidisciplinary Science Building, 859-257-2754, email address email@example.com) for coordination of campus disability services available to students with disabilities.
