Textbook 
James Stewart, Single Variable Calculus (8th edition).

Course Description 
This course will be a continuation of the study of the calculus of functions of one variable. Topics include logarithmic, exponential, and the inverse trigonometric functions, techniques of integration, polar coordinates, parametric equations, infinite series and applications.

Homework 
Homework is an extremely important part of this course. The reason for this is that one cannot learn mathematics by only reading a textbook and attending lectures. In order to really learn mathematics, one must spend a considerable amount of time working through examples, solving difficult exercises and communicating with one's peers.
There will be two types of homework assignments in this course. After each class meeting I will assign one WeBWorK problem set, to be completed prior to the class' next meeting. The questions on WeBWorK problem sets are primarily computational in nature. Instructions on how to use WeBWorK will be given in class. Our course's WeBWorK site can be accessed here. A brief introductory guide to WeBWorK is available here. In addition to the WeBWorK assignments we will have weekly written homework assignments. The problems on these assignments will require more reflection and are meant to help develop your reasoning and deduction skills rather then test your ability to carry out routine calculations. Written homeworks that are not stapled will NOT be accepted. You should write your responses neatly and in complete sentences. If problems on the written homework are not written as such, they may not be graded. Late homework will not be accepted (barring emergencies, of course). At the end of the semester when I compute your cumulative homework score I will drop your lowest written homework score. 
Exams and Quizzes 
There will be two inclass midterm exams and a cumulative final exam at the end of the semester. There will also be 10minute quizzes at the beginning of class on Fridays. At the end of the semester I will drop your lowest quiz score.

Grade Breakdown 
WeBWorK Homework: 15%
Written Homework: 15% Quizzes: 15% Midterm 1: 15% Midterm 2: 15% Final Exam: 25% 
Attendance 
Class attendance will not be a formal part of your grade for this course. Therefore you do not need to explain if you miss a class. You are, however, responsible for finding out what material was discussed in your absence. Excessive absences will adversely affect your performance on the exams and homework sets, so I encourage you to attend as many classes as possible.

Blackboard 
Copies of practice exams, homework solutions, etc. will be available on the course Blackboard site. Go to http://blackboard.oberlin.edu to access these materials. 
Seeking Help 
You should feel free to ask me questions about any material discusses in class, problems with the homework, life outside of mathematics, etc. My office hours are listed above, and if none of these times are convenient for you then you are welcome to schedule another time to meet with me.
Additional resources are:

Academic Honesty 
Homework: When completing the written homework and WeBWorK assignments you are welcome to consult the course textbook, your class notes and the instructor. I also encourage you to form study groups with other students, provided that you adhere to the following guideline: you may discuss the general problem solving techniques necessary to complete the homework problems with other students but must independently arrive at the answers you submit.
Exams and quizzes: You may not use any electronic device (calculator, smartphone, laptops, eReader, etc), consult your notes or consult any source other than the instructor during the quizzes and exams. Additionally, you may not talk to another student about an exam or quiz until you have both turned them in. 
Honor Code 
Oberlin requires that all students sign an Honor Code for all assignments. This pledge (which is to be written out on each assignment) states: “I affirm that I have adhered to the Honor Code in this assignment.” More information about the honor code can be found at the following website:
http://new.oberlin.edu/office/deanofstudents/honor/students.dot As an example of how this applies to this class, you should not search for solutions to problem sets on the internet. Similarly, you may not copy any portion of the work of another student and submit it as your own. 
Disabilities 
Any student with a documented disability is asked to notify their instructor and the Office of Disability Services (located in Peters G27/G28) so that accommodations may be made. For more information, see:
