**Web
Pages:**
This ( http://www.mathcs.wilkes.edu/~sullivap/mth112s10/ ) is the
main web page for
the course. For additional information go
to:

- the
assignment
page, for a list of assignments to be handed in

- the resource page, for a list of resources for calculus on the web
- the
practice
exam
page, for links to practice exams

- the mathcs gradebook page to check your grades

- Evaluate integrals using techniques including integration by parts, partial fractions, trigonometric integrals, and trigonometric and other substitutions.
- Solve integral application problems including area, volume, surface area, work, hydrostatic force, curve length, and center of mass.
- Determine convergence and compute values for improper integrals.
- Work with probability density
functions,
including uniform, normal and exponential density functions, computing
probabilities, expected values, medians, and standard deviations.

- Determine whether an infinite sequence converges or diverges.
- Determine whether an infinite series converges absolutely, converges conditionally or diverges using techniques including direct comparison, limit comparison, root, ratio, integral, p-serries, nth-therm and alternating series tests.
- Compute the sum of a convergent geometric series and a convergent telescoping series.
- Compute the radius and interval of convergence of a power series.
- Find power series representations
of functions,
including Taylor series, Maclaurin series and binomial series.

- Solve separable and first order
linear
differential equations.

**Calculators
and
Computer
Accounts:
**You
will
need a TI89 graphing calculator. Email is the best way to
communicate with me and there is important class information on these
web pages. You will
need
access to email and the web, either through your Wilkes
University account or another account of your choice.

**Attendance:
**You
are expected to attend all
classes and all meetings of the study session you are registered for.
You are responsible for everything that goes on in class (even
if you are not there). Roll will be taken at each
class and at each study session. In accordance with university
policy, four or more
unexcused absences will result in an F in the course.

**Exams,
Quizzes
and
Homework
Grades:
**There
will be four full period exams (tentatively scheduled for 2/5, 3/5, 4/9
and 4/30) the best three of which will each count for 1/6
of
your
grade. I will pick up homework
assignments about twice a week at the beginning of class, usually on
Tuesday and Friday, following the
schedule shown on the
assignment
page. You will be able to
drop your four lowest homework grades, the
rest will be
averaged together and will count for
1/6 of your grade. There will be a final exam,
given during
finals week, which will count for 1/3 of your
grade.
No makeups will be given for exams, if you miss an exam it will
be one you drop. Homework will
not
be accepted late. If classes are canceled or put on a
compressed schedule due
to the
weather on an exam day, the exam will be given at the next regular
class.

**Homework
Assignments:
**You need to do your homework on a nightly basis
to avoid
falling behind. You cannot learn mathematics just by watching
your instructor do the problems. You must practice
yourself. In order to encourage you to do your homework, the
homework
assignments will be collected and graded. If you have questions
about the homework, you should see me outside
of
class before the assignment is due. I am always available during my
office hours and quite often at other times. You may also email
me
with
homework questions. The
grader for your homework will be
looking
to see that you are doing your homework, that all the problems have
been
attempted and that most are done correctly. Some of the problems
will be graded for correctness. He or she will expect to see your work, not just a list of
answers.
A list of all the assignments can be found on the
assignment
page.

**Academic
Honesty:
**The work you hand in should be your own work.
If there is evidence that work you
hand
in is not your own, the first time you will receive a zero on the exam
and the second time you will receive an F in the course.
Appropriate
deans will also be notified.

**Drop
Policy:** If
you wish to drop, I will
give my permission during the first ten weeks of the
semester.
Thereafter you will need the permission of the Dean. Be aware
that poor performance
in the course will not be sufficient reason for the Dean's permission
to
be granted.

**Grading:**
The
total
points
available
are
computed
as follows:

best 3 of the 4 inclass exams @ 100 pts. ea. | 300 |

HW percentage |
100 |

final exam | 200 |

total possible points | 600 |

and
your final grade will be
computed from the total points
you earn as follows:

Total Points |
0 to 359 | 360 to 389 | 390 to 419 | 420 to 449 | 450 to 479 | 480 to 509 | 510 to 539 | 540 to 600 |

Grade |
0 | 1.0 | 1.5 | 2.0 | 2.5 | 3.0 | 3.5 | 4.0 |
