**Textbook :** ** Calculus,
**4th Edition, by James Stewart.
We will cover Chapters 2 – 6, 9.

**Calculators :** A graphing calculator is
required for this course. I recommend a TI 83 – Plus. The TI – 92 or the TI – 89 calculator or any other type of
calculator that has symbolic manipulation capabilities **WILL NOT BE ALLOWED
IN CLASS**. If you have a calculator
other than a TI – 82, TI – 83, TI – 83 Plus, TI – 85, or a TI – 86, you **MUST**
check with me to be certain you can use that calculator on exams. **YOU MAY NOT SHARE CALCULATORS DURING ANY
EXAMINATIONS.**

**Homework :** There will be homework problems for each
section that is covered. They will not
be graded . The homework will prepare you for the exams.

There
will be homework worksheets given weekly.
These worksheets will determine your homework grade. You will have a week to complete each
worksheet to receive credit. ** Homework
sheets will not be accepted late.**
There will be approximately 15 homework worksheets during the
semester. Each worksheet will be worth
10 points toward your homework grade. A
total of 120 points will be considered a perfect homework grade. Anything above 120 will be bonus points and
will count toward your final grade.

examination. Examination One will cover
Chapter 2, Examination Two will cover Chapter3, Examination Three will cover
Chapter 4, Examination Four will cover Chapter 5, Examination Five will cover

Examination is a MASS Exam and occurs on Friday, December 14, 2001 from 3:00

points and the Final Examination is worth 200 points. **The
lowest of the five in - class examinations will be dropped. YOU CANNOT DROP THE FINAL.**

**MAKE - UP EXAMS ARE NOT GIVEN**. **If an
exam is missed for a fully documented reason the final exam grade percentage
will be substituted for the missed exam.
To substitute the final exam percentage for a missed exam provide the instructor documentation for the
missed exam and sign a form that states that the substitution will occur. **

Academic
dishonesty is behavior in which a deliberately fraudulent misrepresentation is employed
in an attempt to gain undeserved intellectual credit either for one's self or
another. Academic dishonesty is not condoned or tolerated at The University of
Tennessee at Martin. Both parties will be severely penalized as allowed by the
university.
