Mathematical Prerequisites: 4 years high school math
including trigonometry, or C in Math 1151 or 1155, or placement exam.
You should review your knowledge of algebra and trigonometry. Some
students do poorly in this class due to poor understanding of basic
arithmetical operations.
Caution:
Grading and Exams: There will be 3 midterm exams and a final exam. Your grade will be determined by the following weights:
Homework The homework assignments are given on the course web page, and are due in discussion session on Tuesday of the week following when the corresponding section was treated by me. You may work together on the homework problems, but must write up your solutions in your own words.
The midterm exams and the final exam are closed book and without notes. You are expected to attend lectures and recitations. You should prepare for class in advance by reading the material for that day. If you have a borderline grade, the final exam takes precedent.
Absence from exams: Missing an exam is permitted only for the most compelling reasons. You should obtain my permission in advance to miss an exam. Otherwise you will be given a 0. If you are excused from taking an exam, you will be given an oral exam, or your other exam scores will be prorated.
Calculators and other electronic devices: A basic calculator will be useful for homework problems, but no calculators or computers will be allowed on the midterm exams or the final. No electronic devices may be accessible to any student during an exam. This includes cell phones and sufficiently sophisticated watches in addition to calculators and other machines. The instructor or proctor reserves the right to require, at the instructor's or proctor's discretion, that any electronic device be put away. Failure to comply is considered cheating by Institute of Technology policy.
Official University Statement on Academic Dishonesty: Academic dishonesty in any portion of the academic work for a course shall be grounds for awarding a grade of F or N for the entire course.
Official University Statement on Credits and Workload Expectations: For undergraduate courses, one credit is defined as equivalent to an average of three hours of learning effort per week (over a full semester) necessary for an average student to achieve an average grade in the course. For example, a student taking a three credit course that meets for three hours a week should expect to spend an additional six hours a week on coursework outside the classroom.
Statement on Incompletes, S/N: The grade "I'' is assigned only when a student has satisfactorily (a C grade or better) completed all but a small portion of the work for the course, and has made prior arrangements to complete the work. This means, for example, if you quit attending class after the second exam, and then request an "I" in the tenth week, your request will be denied. You will fail the course. To obtain an S, you need at least a C grade.
Scholastic Conduct: Each student should read his/her college bulletin for the definitions and possible penalties for cheating. During the exams you must do your own work. Students suspected of cheating will be reported to the Scholastic Conduct Committee for appropriate action.
Complaints: You can address any complaints about your TA to me. You can address complaints about your lecturer to the Undergraduate Head, Professor Larry Gray, Vincent Hall 115.

As of Fall Semester 2009, the SMART Learning Commons smart.umn.edu will be the only source of free tutoring for Mathematics courses. The SMART Commons offers both workshop and tutorial options for students. Tutorials are available for most lower division Math courses (1xxx2xxx level) plus a selected few upper division (4xxx, 5xxx level) Math courses  see SMART Commons Consultant Schedules.The SMART Commons is not only offering tutorials at
its three regular locations  Walter Library (East Bank), Wilson
Library (West Bank), and the Magrath Library (St. Paul campus)  but
also in selected dorms during selected evening and weekend time slots!
Tutoring at the four SMART Learning Commons locations began Monday,
September 14, 2009. Please check smart.umn.edu for
specific details.
