Catalog Description: Integral calculus of one variable and its applications, with exponential,

Textbook: Calculus: Early Transcendentals, third edition, by Jon Rogawski and Colin Adams; published
by W. H. Freeman and Company; 2015
Subject Material: We shall cover parts of Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 of the text.
Lecture: Attending the lecture is a fundamental part of the course; you are responsible for material
presented in the lecture whether or not it is discussed in the textbook. You should expect questions on the
exams that will test your understanding of concepts discussed in the lecture.
Reading: Reading the sections of the textbook corresponding to the assigned homework exercises is
considered part of the homework assignment; you are responsible for material in the assigned reading
whether or not it is discussed in the lecture. It will be expected that you read the assigned material in
advance of each lecture.
Instructional Resources and Tutoring: There are several instructional resources freely available to
Mathematics students. Please see the Mathematics Tutoring page for a listing of these resources and make
use of them.
Electronic Computing Devices: Graphing calculators and computer programs (or online computing
websites such as WolframAlpha) can be very helpful when working through your homework. However,
a calculator/computer should be used as an aid in the learning concepts, not just as a means of
computation. You should use these devices/software when working on math problems at home, but
always keep in mind that you will not be allowed access to any electronic computing devices during
exams. Of course, this also means that you will not be asked to solve problems on exams that require the
aid of an electronic computing device.
Homework: Graded homework will be assigned using WebAssign and will be accessible via TritonEd.
Additional textbook homework exercises are posted on the course textbook homework page with the
same due date as the WebAssign homework. The textbook homework exercises will not be collected and
will not be graded; however, if you seek help from the instructor or TAs, they will often do these
problems.
Online homework will be done through WebAssign via TritonEd.
No homework assignment scores will be dropped at the end of the quarter.
Midterm Exams: There will be two midterm exams given during the quarter. The midterm exams will
be given from 8:00pm - 9:00pm in the evening as listed in the Schedule of Classes. The dates and times
of the exams are also recorded in the course calendar. You may bring one 8.5 by 11 inch handwritten
sheet of notes with you to each midterm exam. No calculators (or other devices) will be allowed during
the midterm exams. There will be no makeup exams.There will be no makeup exams.
Final Examination: The final examination will be held at the date and time officially scheduled in the
Schedule of Classes and also recorded in the course calendar.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you do not have a schedule conflict involving the final
examination; you should not enroll in this class if you cannot take the final examination at its
scheduled time.
You may bring one 8.5 by 11 inch handwritten sheet of notes with you to the final examination; no
other notes (or books) will be allowed.
No calculators (or other devices) will be allowed during the final examination.
Regrade Policy: Your exams will be graded using Gradescope. You will be able to request a regrade via
Gradescope for a specified window of time. Be sure to make your request within the specified window of
time; no regrade requests will be accepted after the deadline.
Administrative Deadline: It is your responsibility to check that your exam scores and WebAssign
homework scores are correctly recorded in TritonEd. Contact your TA before the end of the 10before the end of the 10thth
weekweek of the quarter to resolve recording errors.
Questions regarding missing or incorrectly recorded exam scores or WebAssign homework scores
will not be considered after the last day of instruction.
Be sure to check that your exam scores entered in TritonEd are the same as your exam scores
published on Gradescope.
Grading: Your course grade will be determined by your cumulative average at the end of the term and
will be based on the following scale:
A+ AA- B+ B B- C+ CC-
97 93 90 87 83 80 77 73 70
Note: Your instructor reserves the right to adjust the above scale to be more generous if warranted
by the class's performance.
Your cumulative average will be the best of the following two weighted averages:
20% WebAssign Homework, 20% Midterm Exam I, 20% Midterm Exam II, 40% Final Exam
20% WebAssign Homework, 20% Best Midterm Exam, 60% Final Exam
In addition, you must pass the final examination in order to pass the course.you must pass the final examination in order to pass the course.
Note: Since there are no makeup exams, if you miss an exam for any reason then your course
grade will be computed with the final exam counting 60% of your weighted average.
Academic Integrity: Academic integrity is highly valued at UCSD and academic dishonesty is
considered a serious offense. Students involved in an academic integrity violation will face an
administrative sanction which may include suspension or, in very serious cases, expulsion from the
university. Your integrity has great value: Cultivate and protect your academic integrity. For more about
academic integrity and its value, visit the UCSD Academic Integrity Website.
