About the
course:
This is a calculus course for students of life sciences and other areas.
The main emphasis will be on the interpretation of calculus in numerical,
graphical, algebraic, as well as practical terms. The authors of the textbook
have gone to great lengths to fill the book with many exciting, reallife
examples, which show how calculus concepts appear in life sciences and other
areas. The main topics of the course are applications of the definite integral,
differential equations, and functions of many variables, chapters 6 through 11
of the textbook.

Calculators 
A
graphing calculator is required – TI83 or TI84 recommended 
Graphing Calculators: We expect that you have a programmable graphing
calculator and are familiar with its use. The Quick Start guide
that comes with your calculator should suffice for learning its basic
use. For further help, consult with your instructor and/or ask your
classmates for guidance. Calculator use may be restricted on some exams since
more advanced calculators, like the TI89 can do some of the calculus
computations that we expect you to learn to do with just pencil and
paper. You may be asked during the semester to enter some programs into
your calculator. The

Tips for success:
Read the textbook. An important part of your mathematical education is acquiring
the knack of learning mathematics on your own, from books. You may not be
used to reading mathematics texts, but you will be actively encouraged to read
this one. By reading the text before class you will have a better chance of
making good use of your time in class. Don't worry if you don't
understand everything. Ask questions in class and read the material again
later.
Come to Class. It is very important that you don't miss any classes.
If you miss class, you will fall behind and it will be very difficult to
keep up with the class after that.
Take Notes. Learn to take careful notes of the examples and concepts
given in class. At the very least, copy down all examples that are put up
on the board in class.
Do all the homework problems. The homework problems are the core of this course.
The way you will learn the material is by working the homework problems.
An important purpose of the problems is to make you think through and
master the ideas of the subject so that you can confidently apply your
knowledge in new situations. You don't learn much from a problem you can
do immediately. It is essential that you devote adequate time attempting
to solve each assigned problem. Discipline yourself not to check the
solution manual too quickly, be willing to spend an occasional half hour or
more on a challenging problem. You may learn a great deal from honest
hard work on a problem, even if you don't succeed in solving it. Read the
text material before working on the problems. Solutions to the odd
problems are in the back of your book.
You are responsible for doing all of the assigned problems.
The Exams will reflect the variety of
the homework problems.
Practice exams will be handed out during class.
If you attend class, understand how to do every assigned homework
problem, and the examples from the practice exams you should be well prepared
for the exams.
Policies on
Making up missed work:
Exams:
If you must miss an exam, follow this guide.
Ask for permission to take a makeup exam before the time of the
exam, if possible, either by phone or email. If permission is given,
submit a written note to me explaining why you missed the exam and attach
documentation such as a doctor's note. Schedule a makeup exam with me
soon after the time of the exam. I will strictly enforce this procedure.
Expect to get a zero on the exam if you don't follow this
procedure.
Quizzes: Quizzes are scheduled below. No makeups will be given for
missed quizzes. To compensate for missed quizzes due to illness or other
excused absences, I will drop the two lowest quiz grades before computing your
final grade.
Classes: It is to your benefit to attend class. Students who attend
class on a regular basis perform better on tests than those who don't. I
cover all the test material in class and go over difficult homework problems.
If you miss class for whatever reason, it is your responsibility to
find out what was covered and what announcements were made. Arrive
to class on time and do not leave class early, it disrupts the class by
interrupting my chain of thought when presenting material and preventing the
students from keeping their attention on the work.
