and additional help materials will be made available by logging into CourseWare at http://www.casa.uh.edu. These first portion of these materials are freely available for the
first two weeks of class. All students must purchase a Course Access Code and enter it on
CourseWare
by the first day of the third week of class to continue accessing the course
learning materials. A Course Access Code
can be purchased for $47.35 from the University Bookstore. If you want a
physical copy of the text for the course, then purchase CALCULUS, 9th edition. Authors: Salas/Hille/Etgen.
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons, Inc. Note: You do not
need to purchase a physical copy of this text. You will have access to
the text electronically on CourseWare once
you enter your Course Access Code. Also, even if you purchase a physical
copy of the text, you will still need the Course Access Code to
access the additional learning materials, including the online electronic
quizzes and EMCF assignments. The material covered in the course is
listed below: Chapter 2 LIMITS AND CONTINUITY Weekly Homework: Homework will be collected on Monday in recitation,
starting the second week of class, except on weeks when recitation does not
meet. In these cases, additional information will be given. A list of
problems will be posted from the course home page along with
instructions. Many of the homework sets will come in part from
the URL http://www.mathematics.uh.edu/undergraduate/courses/math1431/index.php#hw. Daily Poppers: Daily grades will be given in lecture beginning the
first day of the third week of class. You need to purchase a course packet of
Popper Forms for Math 1431 section 15825 from the BOOK STORE.
You must bring one of these forms to class every day beginning week 3. No
other form will be accepted. Questions will be asked in lecture at random
times. You will mark your answers on your form and drop the form in a box at
the end of class. Your forms will not be returned. EMCF: "EMCF" stands for "Electronic Multiple Choice
Form". EMCF assignments are answered on CourseWare
using the EMCF tab. The EMCF assignment questions will be posted on the
course calendar page. EMCF assignments will typically be due each Monday,
Wednesday and Friday of the semester. Please see the course calendar page for
more information. Written Quizzes: Written quizzes will be given every Friday in
recitation. Quizzes will be returned in recitation. If you do not attempt all
of the questions on the written homework that is due the following week, or
you do not follow the instructions, then your grade on the written quiz will
automatically become a 0. Online Quizzes: At least one online quiz will be given each week.
You can attempt these quizzes up to 20 times, and the highest grade will be
used for your score. If you fail to reach 70% during three weeks of the
semester, I have the option to drop you from the course. You can
access the quizzes by logging into CourseWare
at http://www.casa.uh.edu. Exams: All sections of Math 1431 take common exams. Four
regular exams will be given during the semester. The
first exam is an online exam that will be available by the first day of class
at http://www.casa.uh.edu. The other
three exams will be given in CASA (located on the second floor of Garrison).
You can access the scheduler for these exams by logging into CourseWare at http://www.casa.uh.edu. The
exams given in CASA will consist of both multiple choice and written
questions. The multiple choice questions will be machine graded. The written
questions will be graded by the instructors and teaching assistants for all
sections of Math 1431, and they will be returned in lab. The scheduler will
be available 2 weeks prior to the start of the exam cycle. Final Exam: A comprehensive final exam will be given in CASA.
You can access the scheduler for this exam by logging into CourseWare at http://www.casa.uh.edu. Grades:
Attendance is Mandatory!! Attendance will be taken in lab, and the daily
poppers will be used to determine your attendance in lecture. I will allow
you a total of 3 unexcused absences from lecture and lab (total). You will
lose 1% of your grade for every unexcused absence from lecture or lab after
the third. Documented University of Houston excused absences will be
permitted. Whenever possible, and in accordance with
504/ADA guidelines, we will attempt to provide reasonable academic
accommodations to students who request and require them. |
