**MATH 2443-Section 004 CALCULUS IV**

This is the syllabus for Mathematics 2443, Section 004, for the Spring Semester 1999. It is your responsibility to acquaint yourself with all the information in this syllabus, and with any modifications to it that may be announced in class. If you lose your copy, please request a replacement from me.

**Instructor:** Dr. Noel Brady.

**Office:** 521 Physical Sciences Center [PHSC].

**Phone:** 325-0833 **E-mail:** nbrady@math.ou.edu

**Office Hours:** Mon 9:30 - 10:30, Wed 10:00 - 11:00, Fri 1:15 - 2:15.

**Text and Course Outline:** The textbook for this course is *Calculus* ($3rd$ Edition), by
James Stewart. We shall cover Chapters 12, 13 and 14. You are all familiar with one variable
calculus. In this course, we shall treat differentiation and integration of functions of two or three variables. We shall
also study some very pretty 2- and 3-dimensional generalizations of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.

**Prerequisites:** Math 2433 (Calculus III), or instructor's permission.

**Lectures:** You are expected to attend all lectures, and are responsible for all information
given out during them. In particular, this includes any changes to the quiz/midterm
dates or content.
The Class Schedule gives a rough indication of what topics we hope to cover
on specific days. Remember that this
is just a rough guide. As the semester develops, we may deviate slightly from this schedule.
As in any course, you should try to read the relevant sections of the textbook **before**
attending lectures.

Not attending lectures is the road to disaster!

**Grading Scheme:** Grades will be assigned by weighting your totals
from Homeworks, Quizzes, Midterms, and a Final Examination as follows:

Homeworks | 15% |

Quizzes | 6% |

Midterm Total | 54% |

Final Examination | 25% |

**Homework:** The homework
total is 150 points. Homework will be due at the **start** of class on Wednesdays. Homework assignments can be found on the Homework Sheets. Minor modifications to
the homework sheets may be announced in class during the semester.

You are responsible for ensuring that your homework gets turned in on time. Late homework will not be accepted. They upset the grading process and are unfair to other students.

The homework assignments are there to provide you with a **minimum** level
of exposure to the materials outside of class time. You will need to do many more problems
before you feel comfortable with the concepts involved. Take it from experience (of generations
of students!) that the way to succeed in a math course is to work (and understand) a large number of
problems.

**Quizzes:** Three 10-minute Quizzes are held in class during regular lecture times.
Each quiz is worth 20 points. Here are the quiz dates.

*Quiz 1:*Wednesday, January 27.*Quiz 2:*Wednesday, March 3.*Quiz 3:*Wednesday, April 7.

**Midterms:** There are three midterms, which are held during regular lecture times.
Each midterm is worth 180 points. They are held on the following dates:

*Midterm 1:*Friday, February 12.*Midterm 2:*Friday, March 12.*Midterm 3:*Friday, April 16.

**Final Examination:** The final examination is cumulative. It is worth 250 points.
It is scheduled for Tuesday, May 4, 4:30pm-6:30pm.

**Taking Examinations:** Here are a few notes on taking Examinations.

- I will hold extra Office Hours and schedule Review Sessions before the Midterms and Final Examinations. You are strongly encouraged to attend the Review Sessions, and to attend Office Hours regularly.
- You cannot use calculators/computers, books or any type of notes during the examinations.
- All examinations must be taken at scheduled times, except in
*very extreme circumstances.*So be careful not to make travel arrangements that conflict with examination times. If you cannot take an examination at a scheduled time, you should contact me*well in advance of the test time.*Otherwise, an absence at an exam will result in a score of zero.

**Withdrawal Policy:** Until January 25 , there is no record of grade for dropped
courses. From January 26 through February 19, you may withdraw and receive a W grade,
*no matter what scores you have so far achieved*. From February 22 through
March 26 you
will need my permission to withdraw. From March 29 on, University regulations
specify that you may withdraw only with the permission of the Dean.

**Academic misconduct:** The following is taken from the University Academic
Misconduct Code. *It is the responsibility of each instructor and each student to be familiar
with the definitions, policies, and procedures concerning academic
misconduct.*

Cases of academic misconduct are inexcusable. Don't do it. All cases of academic misconduct will be reported to the Dean of Arts and Sciences for adjudication.

**Accommodation of Disabilities:**
Any student in this course who has a disability that may prevent him or her
from fully demonstrating his or her abilities should contact me personally
as soon as possible to discuss the accommodations necessary to facilitate his
or her educational opportunity and ensure his or her full participation in
the course.
