Course Description:
This
course is a four (4) hour second calculus course designed for math, science and
engineering majors and certain other technical majors. It satisfies four hours
of the General Education Analytical Reasoning requirement because it includes
the following area learning objective: “LSU graduates will employ scientific
and mathematical models in the resolution of laboratory and realworld
problems.”
As
a 4credit course, students are expected to have eight hours of coursework
outside of class
per
week, for a minimum time commitment of 12 hours per week.

WebAssign:
We
will be using WebAssign to do online homework. A WebAssign access code is included with your textbook, or
you can purchase access directly from the WebAssign
website without buying a book at all. Access to WebAssign
also gives you access to the ebook version of our textbook, so if you like
using ebooks then there is no need to buy a physical textbook. An access code
may also be purchased without a textbook at campus bookstores with a small
markup in price. If you plan to take calculus at LSU next semester as well, you
should buy the multisemester (“Lifetime of the Edition”) version of access.
In
either case, create a WebAssign account by going to
www.webassign.net and clicking onthe link labelled “I
have a class key.” The key for our class is lsu 6253 2947.
In the field that asks for your student ID, enter your LSU ID number (89....)
without any hyphens or spaces. The student ID number is needed to transfer your
scores into the Moodle gradebook.
Calculators and Collaboration:
You
can use any technology available to help with homework, and you may collaborate
with others while doing them. However on exams you may only use a scientific
calculator that does not do any graphs or symbolic manipulation, such as
solving equations and symbolically calculating derivatives and integrals. Also,
work on inclass exams must be your own work with no assistance from anyone
else. During an exam, attempts to look at other students' exams and the use of
crib sheets or formula sheets will be considered to be a violation of the LSU
Code of Student Conduct and will be reported to the Dean of Student's Office.
Homework:
Homework will be
assigned and be completed through WebAssign http://www.webassign.net/. The questions
in the tests and final exam will be similar to those homework problems.
Students are recommended to work out a complete solution for each homework
assignment on paper before typing in the answer in WebAssign.
Students may work in groups on the homework, but each student should write up
his/her own solutions on paper.
Tests and Exam:
No books or notes are permitted. No makeup exams will be given unless a
compelling documented excuse is presented. Your lowest hour test score will be
replaced by your final exam score if it is higher.
Attendance and class preparation:
Regular attendance
is required for this course. You should make every effort not to miss any
classes and complete all the homework in a timely fashion. It is your responsibility
to catch up with missed lectures. You are responsible for the announcements
made in class, which may include changes to the syllabus.
Disability Policy:
Please address any
special needs or special accommodations with me at the beginning of the
semester or as soon as you become aware of your needs. Those seeking
accommodations based on disabilities should obtain forms from the Disability
Services (DS) is located in room 115 of Johnston Hall (2255785919).
