Text: Calculus for Scientists and Engineers: Early Transcendentals, OSU custom edition, by Briggs, Cochran & Gillet (Pearson). ISBN: Looseleaf 125678771X, Hardcover 1256776467.

Course Website: Basic course information such as calendars, syllabus and exam schedule can be found at http://www.math.osu.edu/courses/1172.

Course Description: Integration (techniques and applications), sequences and series, Taylor series, vectors and parametric curves, differential calculus of several variables.

Course Purpose: To provide students with a solid foundation in Calculus (integration, sequences and series, Taylor series, vectors and parametric curves, differential calculus of several variables). Problem solving will be emphasized throughout the course to promote a deeper understanding of the theory of calculus and its applications.

Prerequisites: Grade C- or better in 1151, 4181H, 152.xx or 161.xx, 161.01H, 1114, or 114.

GE Information: This mathematics course can be used, depending on your degree program, to satisfy the Mathematical or Logical Analysis category of the General Education Requirement (GE).

Calculator Policy: Calculators are permitted during exams, except those calculators that have symbolic algebra or calculus capabilities, or that have a QWERTY keyboard. In particular, the following calculators (and their upgrades) are not permitted: TI-86, TI-89, TI-92, TI Voyage 200, HP-40, HP-48, HP-49, Casio FX2.0, Casio CFX 9970G. Also, it is not permitted to use higher memory functions on a calculator to store and read formulae during an exam; this is the electronic equivalent of using notes during exams, which is prohibited. Cell phones and web-enabled devices cannot be used as calculators during exams.

Exams: Attendance at all exams at the scheduled time and place is required. Students must bring their OSU ID to all exams in order for their exams to be properly recorded.

Exams will most likely NOT be held in your regular classroom. Room assignments will be posted on this website, and announced in class a week before each exam. STUDENTS SHOULD NOT MAKE TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS THAT CONFLICT WITH THE FINAL EXAM. SUCH A CONFLICT IS NOT A VALID REASON FOR MISSING THE REGULARLY SCHEDULED FINAL EXAM.

Make-up Policy: Make-up exams will be available for students having documented work & class conflicts or illnesses. Students must have a permission slip from their lecturer to take a make-up exam.

Course Grade: Your final numerical grade will be based on your recitation and exam scores.
Recitation: 150 points
Midterms 200 points (2 midterms at 100 points each)
Final Exam: 200 points
TOTAL: 550 points

The recitation grade includes 80 points for quizzes (top 8 of 10 quiz scores), and 70 points for homework.

MyMathLab Online Homework: This course uses the Carmen (http://www.carmen.osu.edu) course management system, in conjunction with the MyMathLab online homework system. You will receive an access code for MyMathLab when you purchase your textbook. Alternatively, you can choose to buy MyMathLab access only, which includes the electronic version of the book. MyMathLab access is provided as a link through Carmen, and not through the general MyMathLab website.
