GOALS OF THIS COURSE: The primary goal of MTH 111 is to prepare you mathematically for further courses in mathematics, especially calculus.The calculus sequence is often an essential step toward degree and career objectives, so MTH 111 is also such a step. Thus MTH 111 is aimed at the student for whom it will be the first of an important series of courses rather than a last math course. This course is NOT a good choice simply to fulfill a general education requirement. It demands a very substantial amount of hard work for 3 credits.

EXPECTATIONS: We expect that you will give this course 7-9 hours a week of your undivided attention, in addition to your class time. No kidding! This is an approximate figure of course, but don't assume that you can spend less time than this and still get a grade you'll like. We also expect that you will ATTEND YOUR CLASS.

Exams and Evaluation

There will be three exams given outside of class,  Monday evenings, Oct 2, Nov 6, Dec 4, at 6:00-7:30 PM.  Locations will be announced in class. All sections will take these exams. The final exam will be scheduled at a common time for all sections. About 80% of the problems on the exams will be similar to problems on the assigned problems list. The remainder will require a little deeper mastery of the material.

GRADING: Your grade will be determined out of a possible of 600 points:
Three hour tests 300 points
Final exam 200 points
Homework and/or classwork 100 points
Total 600 points

HELP SESSIONS: In addition to your instructor's office hours, the Math Department has  an extensive system of  walk-in help sessions scheduled in Roosevelt Hall.
