Catalog Description (From Math Department sample syllabus)

Limits, continuity, derivatives, differentiation formulas, applications of derivatives, introduction to integration, fundamental theorem of calculus, inverse functions. MAT 191 meets for five hours of lecture per week.

Prerequisites MAT 153 (College Algebra and Trigonometry) or equivalent with a grade of "C" or better and the ELM requirement.

Objectives (From Math Department sample syllabus) After completing MAT 191 the student should be able to

Expected outcomes (From Math Department sample syllabus) The student should be able to demonstrate through written assignments, tests, and/or oral presentations, that he or she has achieved the objectives of MAT 191.

Policies Students are expected to attend all sessions of the course, read the text, do and check all assigned problems, complete all work for which points are assigned. Schedule dates are approximate. Homework is due the session after a section is discussed in class, when even number problems from the section, other than the problem to hand in, may be put on the board. Each student is required to do four problems on the board during the term. Homework problems to be turned in will be accepted if they are late, but it is to the studentís advantage to turn them in promptly. Solutions that have errors or are incomplete will be returned for correction, and will not receive credit until they are corrected. Participation and attendance in the lab sessions is required. Certain lab sessions will have written reports to hand in. Tests will be given on the dates scheduled, and will cover the sections that have been discussed in class. There are no makeup tests. Students may miss one test in an emergency. There may be a bonus given to students who have completed all tests. All students must take the final.

Study Time It is expected that you will spend at least twice the in class hours studying for this class outside of class, that is, at least 10 hours a week. Make sure that you have planned sufficient study time in your weekly schedule for this and your other classes.

To Estimate Your Grade So Far: Average test grade so far x .75 + Labs attended/labs so far x 15 +

(Note: You will have an opportunity to raise your average test grade by doing better on the final.)

Computer/Information Literacy Expectations Students are expected to: 1) use the university email system (Toromail), 2) use Blackboard, 3) search for and use websites with definitions and examples of the mathematical concepts covered in this class.

Academic Integrity (Part from Math Department sample syllabus) The student is expected to complete the work for this course independently. Cooperation on homework is encouraged, with the understanding that each student must individually master the material of the class. The mathematics department does not tolerate cheating. Students who have questions or concerns about academic integrity should ask their professors or the counselors in the Student Development Office, or refer to the University Catalog for more information. (Look in the index under ďacademic integrityĒ.) In accordance with these policies the instructor acknowledges that the material and examples for this course are taken or adapted from the course text or other similar books.

Disabled Student Services The student should contact the instructor and/or the Disabled Student Services (DSS) as early as possible for any accommodation needed. For example, an alternate test site can be arranged through that office.
