COURSE TEXT

Applied Calculus for the Managerial, Life, and Social Sciences (A Brief Approach) (10th Edi-

tion), by S. Tan

COURSE SOFTWARE

This course will require the use of Maple 2018, which is included with the purchase of your

textbook. Maple is a powerful Computer Algebra System (CAS) that allows you to perform

numerical and symbolic calculations in a precise and very fast way. It allows you also to gain

insight to mathematical problems through exploration and experimentation. Proﬁciency with a

CAS is an essential skill to acquire for the 21st century learner. Maple is thus is an integral and

essential part of the course. All written assignments, term tests 1 and 2, and the ﬁnal exam will

have a Maple component. It is recommended that you install Maple on your personal computer.

Maple is also available on all computers across campus, with the exception of computers in the

library.

MEDICAL EXEMPTION POLICY

The University will accommodate students whose studies become interrupted, or who may be

unable to complete academic work, due to an incapacitating medical condition. In these situ-

ations, the student must complete the Brock University Student Medical Certiﬁcate or Brock

University Student Health Services Medical Certiﬁcate (or in case of a concussion, the Brock

University Student Health Services Medical Concussion Certiﬁcate) and include any relevant

medical documentation to support the request for academic accommodation based on medical

grounds. The University may, at its discretion, request more detailed documentation in certain

cases.

NOTE: If a student is absent due to medical reasons on a day and a time when

the Brock Student Health Services (SHS) is open, then an SHS medical certiﬁcate

is required. Otherwise, the student must (1) print a Brock medical certiﬁcate, (2)

Go to another medical facility e.g., a walk-in clinic, and (3) Have the examining

physician complete the Brock medical certiﬁcate. Any other certiﬁcate will not

be accepted. All certiﬁcates will be monitored for compliance with the Academic

Regulations and University Policies entry in the Undergraduate Calendar.

POLICY ON MISSED TERM TESTS AND EXAMS

For each term test, accommodation will be made for students who must miss a term test due

to a valid and documented medical illness. Students who miss one original term test date, with

documentation, will have the weight of the missed term test added to their ﬁnal exam. If both

term tests are missed, with documentation, the weight of the second term test will be added

to the ﬁnal exam, while the ﬁrst term test will receive a grade of zero (0). All applications

for permission to defer a term test must be made, with appropriate documentation and full

explanation of the extenuating circumstances, to your instructor in advance of the original date

and time of the term test.

The ﬁnal exam period is Wednesday, April 10 to Wednesday, April 24. Students are advised

not to make travel plans or schedule events in advance prior to the release of the Term Test

Schedule and Final Exam Schedule. Students who make personal commitments during the term

or exam period do so at their own risk. Vacation plans, nonessential appointments or events do

not constitute grounds for the deferral or re-scheduling of term tests or ﬁnal exams.

To accommodate students who must miss the exam due to a valid and documented medical

illness, a secondary date will be scheduled with your instructor. All applications for permission

to defer the exam must be made, with appropriate documentation and full explanation of the

extenuating circumstances, to your instructor within seven (7) days of the original exam date.

Make-up exams will be scheduled as soon as possible upon return to studies, and additional

medical notes will be required if extenuating circumstances warrant a further extension. If an

exam is not scheduled within the ﬁrst two (2) weeks of the next term due to documented medical

illness, the exam will be written in the next exam period. All make-up exams will adhere to the

Academic Regulations and University Policies entry in the Undergraduate Calendar.

ASSIGNMENT & TEST REGRADE POLICY

Requests for assignment or test regrading must be made in writing to your instructor, detail-

ing which question(s) you would like to have regraded, and justiﬁcation for why you believe

the assigned mark is erroneous. Please note that when submitting your assignment or test for

regrading, your instructor reserves the right to regrade the entire assignment/test, which may

result in an equivalent, higher, or lower mark than originally awarded.

ACADEMIC ACCOMMODATION

As part of Brock University’s commitment to a respectful work and learning environment, the

University will make every reasonable eﬀort to accommodate all members of the university com-

munity with disabilities. If you require academic accommodations related to a documented

disability to participate in this course, you are encouraged to contact Students Accessibility

Services in the Student Development Centre (4th ﬂoor Schmon Tower, ex. 3240). You are en-

couraged to discuss any accommodations with the instructor well in advance of due dates and

scheduled assessments.

ACADEMIC ACCOMMODATION DUE TO RELIGIOUS OBLIGATIONS

Brock University acknowledges the pluralistic nature of the undergraduate and graduate commu-

nities such that accommodations will be made for students who, by reason of religious obligation,

must miss an examination, test, assignment deadline, laboratory or other compulsory academic

event. Students requesting academic accommodation on the basis of religious obligation should

make a formal, written request to their instructor(s) for alternative dates and/or means of sat-

isfying requirements.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

Academic misconduct is a serious oﬀence. The principle of academic integrity, particularly of

doing ones own work, documenting properly (including use of quotation marks, appropriate

paraphrasing and referencing/citation), collaborating appropriately, and avoiding misrepresen-

tation, is a core principle in university study. Students should consult Section VII, Academic

Misconduct, in the Academic Regulations and University Policies entry in the Undergraduate

Calendar, available at http://www.brocku.ca/webcal to view a fuller description of prohibited

actions, and the procedures and penalties.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY NOTICE

All slides, presentations, handouts, tests, exams, assignments, solutions, websites and other

course materials created by the instructor in this course are the intellectual property of the

instructor. A student who publicly posts or sells an instructors work, without the instruc-

tors express consent, may be charged with misconduct under Brocks Academic Integrity Policy

and/or Code of Conduct, and may also face adverse legal consequences for infringement of

intellectual property rights.
