Math 2057 Fall 2016: Multidimensional Calculus (Calculus III)
Announcements
1. Welcome to the class! The first lecture will be on Aug. 23.
Text:
Calculus, Early Transcendentals 7th Edition by James Stewart, Sections 14.116.9
Topics: https://www.math.lsu.edu/courses/2057
Grade Policy:
There will be weekly homework sets (10%), Popup quizzes (10%), two midterm exams (40%) and a final (40%). The schedule of the midterm exams are on Sept. 29 and Nov. 03, 2016 in class. And the final exam will be on Dec 05 for Section 4 and Dec 07 for Section 5. The place will be announced later on.
Grades Scale:
Your letter grade will be assigned as follows: 9093% =A, 9497% =A, 98100% =A+, 8082% =B, 8386% =B, 8789% =B+, 7072%=C, 7376%=C, 7779%=C+, 6062%=D, 6366%=D, 6769%=D+, and 59% or less=F.
Quizzes and Exams:
No books or notes are permitted in quizzes and exams. There will be popup quizzes. Each quiz is about 15 minutes long and may consists of problems chosen from homework assignments. The lowest quiz score will be dropped in the end. No makeup quiz will be given. There will be two inclass 50minutelong midterms exams. No makeup exams will be given unless a compelling documented excuse is presented. If you must miss an exam, you should notify the course instructor well prior to the exam, and the excuse must be a valid, fully documented one and one which is officially approved.
Homework:
Homework will be assigned and be completed through WebAssign http://www.webassign.net/. Students are required to sign up WebAssign with your LSU account. This course is cumulative, so it is essential to complete homework timely in order not to fall behind. The questions in the quizzes, midterm exams and final exam may be similar to some of 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.
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. Create a WebAssign account by going to www.webassign.net and clicking on the link labelled “I have a class key.” The key for section 4 is lsu 6200 9251, for section 5 is lsu 2939 0796. 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.
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).
Extra Help:
· A FiveStep Plan for Grade Improvement
