Course Objectives and Expected Outcomes: In this course, we'll cover various applications of the definite integral, techniques of integration, calculus on curves given parametrically, sequences and series of real numbers, power series, and some miscellaneous topics related to these. For more details, compare the list of sections below with our text's table of contents. Students are expected to display a thorough understanding of the techniques of these topics and, to some extent, the theory behind them.
Text: You'll need access to a textbook by the first day of class. For MATH 220, you have two choices, depending on whether or not you will also take MATH 221.
Calculus, Early Transcendentals James Stewart, 6th ed., MATH 120, 220, 221.
Single Variable Calculus, Early Transcendentals James Stewart, 6th ed. MATH 120, 220.
Do not buy Single Variable Calculus, Early Transcendentals Volume 1, which covers MATH 120 only. Do not buy a WebAssign access code with your book without first reading WebAssign below.
WebAssign: WebAssign is an online homework system that gives immediate feedback and extra help on many of the problems in our text. You can use WebAssign for free until 14 days after the first day of class. A set of required WebAssignments to be completed during the free trial period will count as as our first quiz. Optional WebAssignments will be available for any students who find WA useful; to access these after the free trial period, you'll need a WebAssign access code (which you can purchase online below), so try out WA thoroughly before the free trial ends. These optional problem sets will not be used in the calculation of your grade.

To start using WebAssign, go to http://www.webassign.net and click on "I have a class key." Your class key is cofc 2178 0376 (Don't omit the "cofc.")

Exams and Grades: We'll have four (4) 75-minute midterm exams, a 3-hour final exam, and weekly one-question quizzes. See Schedule below for dates. All exams and quizes will be closed book: no notes, books, etc. Calculators will be excluded from most (perhaps all) exam questions. Notes stored in your calculator in the form of programs, equations, etc., are expressly forbidden. You may not use any other electronic device, or any calculator with symbolic capabilities, on any part of an exam.

Although basic ideas we learn in this course can appear on several exams or quizzes, each weekly quiz will be based primarily on material covered since the time of the previous exam or quiz, and each midterm exam will be based primarily on material covered since the previous midterm. Our final exam in this course will be cumulative. Unless I specifically tell you otherwise, you should assume that any topic of this course could appear on the final.

Each of the four (4) midterm exams is worth 100 points, the final exam is worth 200 points, and the weekly in-class quizzes are worth 50 points altogether. I'll assign letter grades as follows:
Letter grade: A A- B+ B B- C+ C C- D+ D D-
Minimum required score: 90% 87% 83% 80% 77% 73% 70% 67% 63% 60% 57%

I won't drop any exams, but if you do better on the final exam than on your worst midterm exam, I'll raise that (one) midterm exam score by averaging it with your final exam (percentage) score. Then, at the end of the semester, I'll calculate your grade two ways--based on the percent you earned of the 600 possible exam points, and again based on the percent you earned of the 650 possible exam and quiz points--and give you whichever letter grade comes out higher.

Attendance Policy: Good attendance is a necessary first step towards a good grade. I strongly recommend that you attend class every day.

If you're absent on a non-exam day, I'll assume that you have a good reason for missing and will not require an excuse. Read the text and try the homework for the day you miss and then bring questions to me in my office. See Make-up Policy for absences on exam days.

Make-up Policy: If you must miss an exam, I expect you to contact me (using all the numbers above) and the Absence Memo Office as soon as possible. Do not delay. I can allow you a make-up exam only if I determine that your absence at exam time (and every reasonable time until the make-up) is excusable. If you are not sick enough to see a doctor on the day of the exam, then you are not sick enough to miss the exam. An unexcused exam will be given the grade zero, probably causing you to fail the course. There are no makeups for quizzes, but I'll drop your two (2) lowest quiz scores before computing your quiz average.
How to get your best grade: Attend every class, practice lots of homework, and read the book!

After each class, do as many of the assigned problems as possible. There will be a short time to ask questions about these at the beginning of the next class. If you run into dificulty, really try; don't flit from one unsolved problem to the next.

Don't just do the homework until you get the right answer, but practice homework problems until you can do them reliably on an exam. Practice reading the instructions on homework problems. If you are able to do the homework only after looking at some answers in the back to figure out what the question is asking, then you're not prepared for the exams.

Begin extra studying well in advance for the tests, at least a week. Write (and rewrite) a special set of notes that summarize in your own words the important facts for the test. Include in these notes the different types of problems appearing in the homework and the steps you follow to solve each type.

Calculators: A calculator is of limited use in learning the material in this class, so no specific model is required for this course. See also Exams and Grades.
Syllabus On Line: If it becomes necessary for me to change any part of this syllabus, you'll always find its most current version at http://kunklet.people.cofc.edu/ . Look for the last change date at the top of this document, and the description of changes at the bottom.
Old Exams: Here are the exams from my MATH 220, Spring 2011, when I last taught this class. Since course content and the order of topics can change from one semester to the next, these exams might not always cover the material you should be studying for your exams.
Exam 1 Exam 2 Exam 3 Exam 4 Final Exam
Learning Disabled Students: If you have a learning disability which will effect your performance in this class, you should contact Disability Services (953-1431) and talk to me in private. I can make no special testing allowances without documentation from Disability Services. Appointments with Disability Services for alternate testing must be made by the student at least three days in advance of the test date.
Assigned Problems: This is a list of all the problems worth doing in each section we'll cover. I won't collect these, but you should be doing them daily.

"5-25" means the odd numbered problems between 5 and 25, inclusive. "7-19 (all)" means all problems between 7 and 19, inclusive. * indicates a challenging but worthwhile problem. ** indicates a very challenging problem for your enjoyment only. I won't put a ** problem on an exam, and I probably won't have time to do one in class. "12.rev" refers to the review exercises at the end of Chapter 12. "App.D" refers to Appendix D in the back of our text. [17] means to do problem 17 if time allows us to cover this topic in class.

Do the problems marked review in Chapter 3 to review differentiation. Do the problems marked review in Chapter 5 to review the Fundamental Theorem and substition. Do the problems marked review in Appendix D to review trigonometry.
