Class Description:  Prerequisite: MATH 283, recently. A reexamination of the calculus of functions of onevariable: real numbers, convergence, continuity, differentiation and integration. This course is NOT "selfpaced". The pace is established by the course Calendar, which is attached to the course Syllabus. It is considerably difficult, but if you succeed in keeping up and ask questions about material that you do not understand, you will succeed. Remember that you have a "live" instructor who will answer your questions.
Withdrawal Policy:If you determine that you wish to drop the course prior to its conclusion, it is necessary for you to officially drop, either online through the college's website, or by visiting one of our college campuses and submitting a drop form. Any student who does not officially drop will receive a grade at the conclusion of the course. These grades will be based on the number of points that you have accumulated (see below).If you do not officially drop the course as described above, by taking this class you agree that your "last date of attendance" for official purposes will be the last day of this course. Since this may affect your financial aid, it behooves you to drop officially or to complete the entire course.

Course Objectives:  The successful student will be able to:

Instructional Methods:  Each week, there will be assigned readings from the book, which will be contained on
each course lecture. You will work the homework from each lesson, and will hand in homework
periodically  as identified below. Feel free to ask questions on the phone, via email, by fax, or by attaching MS Word files to email. I plan to answer all questions within 24 hours. 
Homework Policy:  If you don't do homework, it is unlikely that you will pass the course. However, homework will not normally be collected for a grade. The student is expected to do half of the problems from each section that we cover. Test problems will be similar but not identical to those in the book. Occasionally (see below), I will ask that you turn in your homework to be graded. When I do this, you should submit your homework as MS Word files, attached to an email message. 
Withdrawal Policy:  If you determine that you wish to drop the course prior to its conclusion, it is necessary for you to
officially drop, either online through the college's website, or by visiting one of our college campuses and submitting a drop form.
Any student who does not officially drop will receive a grade at the conclusion of the course. These grades will be based on
the number of points that you have accumulated (see below). If you do not officially drop the course as described above, by taking this class you agree that your "last date of attendance" for official purposes will be the last day of this course. Since this may affect your financial aid, it behooves you to drop officially or to complete the entire course. 
Grading:  The class is graded on four tests and various assignments, as follows: 4 tests, each worth 35 points. These will be sent by me via email and must be completed without assistance in one weekend's time, typically due the Monday after they are assigned in the lessons. Most test problems will be difficult enough that you cannot simply copy something from the book, although you should remember that the methods are generally the same. These tests normally occur at the end of each chapter. Consequently, each test will be no longer than 14 questions. You will mail your completed tests back to me as attached files or may fax them. After they have been graded (usually by the following Thursday), you may email me for your results. 5 homework assignments, each worth 20 points. These will be assigned at various times during the semester and will include a subset of your normal homework assignment. As with the other material, you will write the homework in MS Word and attach the file to an email message. Homework must be completed on time. 1 Final Exam, worth 60 points. The test will be cumulative, covering all of the course material. It will be mailed out to you as an attached MS Word file, and you will complete it within 2 days. It will contain no more than 26 questions. Special: If you have an "A" average (216 points or better) going into the final, you do not have to take the final exam, but you must still hand in the final homework. 
Therefore, the total number of points available for the semester is 300 points. The number of points required to obtain each grade is as follows:
A  270  B+  255  C+  225  D+  195  
B  240  C  210  D  180  F  0 
The Nevada System of Higher Education expressly forbids all forms of academic dishonesty, including (but not limited to) all forms of cheating, copying, and plagiarism. Students who are discovered cheating will be assigned zero points for the current assignment. If the cheating is believed to be widespread  to involve other students and/or to cover more than one assignment or test  then all students involved will receive "F" grades for the course and will be brought to the GBC academic officers for prosecution. I will normally recommend that students found guilty in that instance be placed on one year disciplinary probation.
Good luck!
