Text: Ostebee, Zorn: Calculus, Volume 2, 2nd Ed.

Necessary tool: A TI-89, TI-92+ or TI-Voyage 200 graphing/symbolic calculator.

Grading Policy:
How your work contributes to your grade:

How your %  affects your grade:
Work Component: Points:
Total Per Cent Minimum Grade
Homework, Labs and Quizzes 100-150    90%  A- 
Tests 300 
80%  B- 
Final 150 
65%  C- 
Total Possible Points

Grade will be reduced one letter if fewer than 90% of Maple-TA assignments are completed adequately.

Homework Requirements:

With few exceptions, you will have two assignments due each day, both listed on the class Moodle  page (login with your stolaf e-mail name and password at homework will consist of two parts. Each will be graded, though in different ways.

No late homework will be accepted. However,  the three lowest written homework scores will be deleted from consideration when grades are calculated, to allow for emergencies or illness.

Skills Tests:

While the primary emphasis in this class is on conceptual understanding and higher order thinking, proficiency with calculus computation skills is also essential. Consequently, you may be required to pass one or two Calculus Skills tests, which you will take on your own time and retake until you achieve a passing score.

Getting Help:

Math Clinics:  These walk-in help sessions, are a good chance to get some help from upper-class math majors on your assignments. Here is the schedule for Calc II clinics this semester:

SC 186 -- Math 126/128
7:30-9:00 Su M T W Th evenings

Help from the Instructor:  I am glad to answer questions or talk about your homework during my office hours and at other times by appointment. You may also e-mail questions to me and you should check your electronic mail between classes for hints and clarifications on assignments.

Disability Policy:
If you have a documented disability that will impact your work in this class, please contact me to discuss your needs. Additionally, you will need to register with Student Disability Services located at the Academic Support Center in Room 1 of the Old Main Annex. All such discussions will be confidential.
