Comprehensive Final Exam: Friday August 5^{th} 2005, 9:05am  11:00am, Vincent Hall 209
Overview: An eight week tour of
differential and integral calculus in one variable, and differential
calculus in two variables. Does not involve trigonometry. Emphasis on
formulas and their interpretation and use in applications. 4 credits.
5 two hour lectures per week.
Please note that the class title
does not mean the class requires less effort than other calculus
classes. On the contrary, this class cover a wide range of topics,
with the notable exception of trigonometry in just eight weeks.
Dropping dates: The schedule for
dropping deadlines could be found at the following site:

Incomplete: These are given only on a special circumstances in which the students have fulfilled all but a small portions of the work in the course, have a compelling reason for the incomplete and must have a prior arrangements with the instructor before the end of the term as to how the incomplete will be removed.
Exams and Grading Policy: There will be 7 homeworks, 7 onehour exams and a twohour final exam. The final will be a common exam graded in common. It will NOT be multiple choice. The final counts for the 1/3 of the student's grade. Yes, the grading will be CURVED. Generally, a student fails if his score is less than 1/2 the best score in the class. Of course, just a little better than half does not guarantee passing. The approximate formula is as follows:
Homeworks: 100 points
Exams: 300 points (6 x 50, best 6 of 7)
Final Exam: 200 points (Total possible points 600)
Absence from Exams and Quizzes: There are no make up Exams. However, you may miss one of the 7 scheduled exams.
Policy on Calculators: Only scientific calculators may be used in exams. A scientific calculator is one that can calculate the values of the standard algebraic and transcendental functions, but cannot display graphs of functions or do symbolic manipulations. In particular, graphing calculators are not allowed.
Textbook: Hoffman and Bradley, 2004, Calculus for Business, Economics, etc, 8^{th} Ed.
Lecture, Exams and Homework Schedule:
Homeworks will be due on Wednesdays at the beginning of the class.
