. Test dates, assignments, etc.

In this course we will prove the results in freshman calculus.
This requires a careful study of limits. High school algebra is
the main tool, but it is used in a very sophisticated way.

### Prerequisites

MAT 211 (vector calculus) and MAT 271 (introduction to logic
and proofs in higher math) or equivalent with at least a "C"
grade.

### Learning outcomes

See the "Objectives" listed in the MAT 401 Sample
Syllabus
http://http://www.csudh.edu/math/syllabi/MAT401DeptSyllabus.html
on the math department website.

### Course requirements, grading, due dates

I base grades on homework, tests, and a final exam, but fuzzy
things like class participation also play a role because I often
give the benefit of the doubt to people who have worked hard and
contributed to class discussions.

Homework |
25% of grade |

2 Midterms |
20% of grade each (40% total) |

Final exam |
35% of grade |

I will announce assignments and tests in class and post them
on the course calendar (see reference above). Assignments are due
on the due date. I won't give make up tests or grade assignments
that come in late.

I rarely take attendance, but class participation is
important. Students who are serious don't skip classes.

### Academic Integrity and Plagiarism

The math department
does not tolerate cheating. Students are free to collaborate and
share ideas and methods, but work that you turn in with your name
on it must be your own. The university's official policy is
spelled out in its statement on Academic Integrity and Plagiarism
in the University Catalog.
### Students with disabilities

Students with disabilities have a legal right to reasonable
accomodations. For assistance please contact me and our Disabled
Student Services office.

### Calcululators, computers, etc.

Calculators, computers, etc. aren't required.
