Exams: There will be three in-class exams each worth 15% of your grade ea ch plus a comprehensive uniform common final exam worth 25% of your grade. Calcu la tors and note s o f any kind wi l l no t be permit t ed on exams. Exam #1: Thursday February 18th (15%) Exam #2: Thursday March 17th (15%) Exam #3: Thursday April 21st (15%) Final Exam: Saturday May 7th (25%) Online Homework (5%)

• This will be completed using MyMathLab and will be automatically scored by the software. The purpose of the online homework component is to learn from your mistakes by utilizing the many tutorial and help options available in order to be prepared to complete the written homework portion.

• You can complete MyMathLab homework assignment up to one week following the due date but will accrue a 20% penalty.

• There will be approximately 12 online assignments and your lowest 2 scores will be dropped. • Online assignments are due each Tuesday by the start of class (1:30pm)

Written Homework (10%) • The written homework is intended to be completed after you have had some initial practice with the online

homework. Problems will be assigned from the textbook which can be accessed in either the hard copy or the digital version of the book. Since exams will be given in written form, it is important to practice completing problems in this format.

• Work will be graded on accuracy of solutions. Solutions will only be considered complete if the logical progression of steps leading to the correct answer is shown. Work must be neat and legible. Partial credit may be awarded.

• Although it is appropriate to work with your peers to complete written homework assignments, each student must present his own work. Students will receive one plagiarism warning on written homework assignments. The second offense will result in earning no credit for the assignment.

• Written homework assignments are due each Tuesday at the start of class (1:30pm) • Written homework assignments will not be accepted late, even in the case of absence. • There will be 12 written homework assignments and your lowest 2 scores will be dropped.

Calculus Application Project (5%): This project will be assigned during the semester and will be in addition to the homework assignments. Late projects will not be accepted. This project will incorporate CORE Learning Outcome #4 - Modeling. DUE DATE: Thursday April 14th, 2016

Recitation Attendance or Exam Averages (10%): You will be rewarded for attending and participating in recitation. However, if you do not attend recitation, you can count your exam score in this category rather than your attendance average.

To calculate the recitation grade, average the following scores:

Attendance Percentage for 1/19 – 2/18 or Exam 1 score (whichever is higher)

Attendance Percentage for 2/23 – 3/17 or Exam 2 score (whichever is higher)

COURSE PROCEDURES

IX. Course Policies - Grades

Attendance Policy: Your course grade will not be dependent upon class attendance, however , class lectures are a critical part of the learning process. Students who attend class on a regular basis tend to feel more prepared for assessments and hence perform better in the course.

Please see Sec t ion VI: Ass ignments for information on how recitation attendance can factor into your final grade.

CU Denver Student Attendance and Absences Policy can be found at: http://www.ucdenver.edu/faculty_staff/employees/policies/Policies%20Library/OAA/StudentAttendance.pdf

Late Work Policy: Online assignments may be submitted up to one week after the due date with a 20% penalty. Extra Credit Policy: Extra credit will not be offered, with the exception of bonus problems given on exams. Exam bonuses will be given at the discretion of the instructor and will be labeled as such.

Assessment Make-up Policy:

• Exams - If circumstances arise that prevent you from attending an exam, please contact me ahead of time as I will be much more lenient. Unexplained absences will require hard evidence such as a death certificate, hospital paperwork, etc. You will have up to one week to make up an exam with documentation.

• Final Exam – The final exam will be Saturday May 7th, 2016 during the department-wide Uniform Finals Day. Alternate final exam dates/times are offered in extremely rare circumstances and must be approved by the course captain in advance with documentation provided. Conflicts due to travel plans and work schedules will not be accommodated.

Incomplete Policy: Incomplete grades (I) are not granted for low academic performance. To be eligible for an Incomplete grade, students must (1) successfully complete at least 75 percent of the course, (2) have special circumstances (verification may be required) that preclude the student from attending class and completing graded assignments, and (3) make arrangements to complete missing assignments with the original instructor using a CLAS Course Completion agreement.

X. Course Policies – Technology and Media

Email – Students can communicate with me regarding attendance, meeting arrangements, grades, and/or questions regarding the course content, assignments, and due dates. You may also send me a message via Canvas. I will check by my CU Denver email and Canvas daily, excluding weekends.

MyMathLab Technical Difficulties – Please contact Pearson Support. In most cases I will not be able to help with these types of issues, but feel free to email me so that I can be more lenient with due dates if necessary.

XI. Getting Help

Instructor Office Hours/By Appointment Feel free to see me with questions not answered during lecture, additional explanation, or homework assistance. MERC Lab - North Classroom Room 2015 There are Teaching Assistants available to answer your questions in the MERC lab. This is an excellent resource! Check with the lab to see their schedule. Try to form a study group to study and learn with; it really works for some people! Realize that there are many ways of learning and a study group may be helpful for you. Learning Resource Center – Student Commons Building Room 2105 The Center provides individual and group tutoring, Supplemental Instruction (SI), study skills workshops and ESL support. UCD students are eligible for 1 hour of free tutoring per week. The University of Colorado Denver provides many other services and resources. See http://www.ucdenver.edu/life/services/Pages/index.aspx

XII. Academic Honesty

Students are required to know, understand, and comply with the CU Denver Academic Dishonesty Policy as detailed in the Catalog and on the CLAS website. Academic dishonesty consists of plagiarism, cheating, fabrication and falsification, multiple submission of the same work, misuse of academic materials, and complicity in academic dishonesty. If you are not familiar with the definitions of these offenses, go to http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/CLAS/faculty-staff/policies/Pages/DefinitionofAcademicDishonesty.aspx. This course assumes your knowledge of these policies and definitions. Failure to adhere to them can result in possible penalties ranging from failure of this course to dismissal from the University; so, be informed and be careful. If this is unclear to you, ask me. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) Ethics Bylaws allow the instructor to decide how to respond to an ethics violation, whether by lowering the assignment grade, lowering the course grade, and/or filing charges against the

student with the Academic Ethics Committee. Violating the Academic Honor Code can lead to expulsion from the University.

Definition of Academic Dishonesty

Students are expected to know, understand, and comply with the ethical standards of the University. In addition, students have an obligation to inform the appropriate official of any acts of academic dishonesty by other students of the University. Academic dishonesty is defined as a student's use of unauthorized assistance with intent to deceive an instructor or other such person who may be assigned to evaluate the student’s work in meeting course and degree requirements. Examples of academic dishonesty include, but are not limited to, the following:

Plagiarism: Plagiarism is the use of another person’s distinctive ideas or words without acknowledgment. The incorporation of another person’s work into one’s own requires appropriate identification and acknowledgment, regardless of the means of appropriation. The following are considered to be forms of plagiarism when the source is not noted:

1. Word-for-word copying of another person's ideas or words. 2. The mosaic (the interspersing of one’s own words here and there while, in essence, copying another's work). 3. The paraphrase (the rewriting of another’s work, yet still using their fundamental idea or theory). 4. Fabrication of references (inventing or counterfeiting sources). 5. Submission of another’s work as one's own. 6. Neglecting quotation marks on material that is otherwise acknowledged.

Acknowledgment is not necessary when the material used is common knowledge.

Cheating: Cheating involves the possession, communication, or use of information, materials, notes, study aids or other devices not authorized by the instructor in an academic exercise, or communication with another person during such an exercise. Examples of cheating are:

1. Copying from another's paper or receiving unauthorized assistance from another during an academic exercise or in the submission of academic material.

2. Using a calculator when its use has been disallowed. 3. Collaborating with another student or students during an academic exercise without the consent of the instructor.

Fabrication and Falsification: Fabrication involves inventing or counterfeiting information, i.e., creating results not obtained in a study or laboratory experiment. Falsification, on the other hand, involves deliberately alternating or changing results to suit one’s needs in an experiment or other academic exercise. Multiple Submissions: This is the submission of academic work for which academic credit has already been earned, when such submission is made without instructor authorization. Misuse of Academic Materials: The misuse of academic materials includes, but is not limited to, the following:

1. Stealing or destroying library or reference materials or computer programs. 2. Stealing or destroying another student’s notes or materials, or having such materials in one’s possession without the

owner’s permission. 3. Receiving assistance in locating or using sources of information in an assignment when such assistance has been

forbidden by the instructor. 4. Illegitimate possession, disposition, or use of examinations or answer keys to examinations. 5. Unauthorized alteration, forgery, or falsification. 6. Unauthorized sale or purchase of examinations, papers, or assignments.

Complicity in Academic Dishonesty: Complicity involves knowingly contributing to another’s acts of academic dishonesty.

Student Code of Conduct: As members of the University community, students are expected to uphold university standards, which include abiding by state civil and criminal laws and all University policies and standards of conduct. These standards are outlined in the student code of conduct which can be found at: http://www.ucdenver.edu/life/services/standards/students/Pages/default.aspx

XIII. Important Dates to Remember

Spring 2016 CLAS Academic Policies

The following policies, procedures, and deadlines pertain to all students taking classes in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS). They are aligned with the Official University Academic Calendar:

http://www.ucdenver.edu/student-services/resources/Registrar-dev/CourseListings/Pages/AcademicCalendar.aspx

• Schedule verification: It is each student’s responsibility to verify that their official registration and schedule of classes is correct in their Passport ID portal before classes begin and by the university census date. Failure to verify schedule accuracy is not sufficient reason to justify late adds or drops. Access to a course through Canvas is not evidence of official enrollment.

• E-mail: Students must activate and regularly check their official CU Denver e-mail account for university related messages. • Administrative Drops: Students may be administratively dropped from a class if they never attended or stopped attending, if the course

syllabus indicates that the instructor will do this. Students may be administratively dropped if they do not meet the requisites for the course as detailed in course descriptions.

• Late adds and late withdrawals require a written petition, verifiable documentation, and dean’s approval. CLAS undergraduate students should visit the CLAS Advising Office (NC1030) and graduate students should visit the Graduate School (12th floor LSC) to learn more about the petition process and what they need to do to qualify for dean’s approval.

• Waitlists: The Office of the Registrar notifies students at their CU Denver e-mail account if they are added to a class from a waitlist. Students are not automatically dropped from a class if they never attended, stopped attending, or do not make tuition payments. After waitlists are purged, students must follow late add procedures to be enrolled in a course. Students will have access to Canvas when they are on a waitlist, but this does not mean that a student is enrolled or guaranteed a seat in the course. Students must obtain instructor permission to override a waitlist and this is only possible when there is physical space available in a classroom, according to fire code.

Important Dates and Deadlines

All dates and deadlines are in Mountain Time (MT). • January 19, 2016: First day of classes. • January 24, 2016: Last day to add or waitlist a class using the Passport ID portal. • January 24, 2016: Last day to drop a class without a $100 drop charge--this includes section changes. • January 25, 2016: All waitlists are purged. Students should check their schedules in their Passport ID portal to confirm in which classes

you are officially enrolled. • January 26-Feburary 3, 2016, 5 PM: To add a course students must obtain instructor permission using the Instructor Permission to

Enroll Form and bring it to the CLAS Advising Office (NC 1030) or have their instructor e-mail it to [email protected] . • February 3, 2016: Census date.

o 2/3/16, 5 PM: Last day to add full term classes with instructor approval. Adding a class after this date (late add) requires a written petition, verifiable documentation, and dean’s approval. After this date, students will be charged the full tuition amount for additional classes added – College Opportunity Fund hours will not be deducted from eligible student’s lifetime hours.

o 2/3/16, 5 PM: Last day to drop full term classes with a financial adjustment on the Passport ID portal. After this date, withdrawing from classes requires instructor signature approval and will appear on student’s transcript with a grade of ‘W’. After this date, a complete withdrawal (dropping all classes) from the term will require the signature of the dean and no tuition adjustment will be made. Students should consult appropriate service offices (e.g. international status, Financial Aid (loans, grants, and/or scholarships) or Veteran’s Student Services) before withdrawing from course(s) to determine any impact for continued enrollment and funding.

o 2/3/16, 5 PM: Last day to apply for Spring 2016 graduation. Undergraduates must make an appointment and see their academic advisor before this date to apply. Graduate students must complete the Intent to Graduate and Candidate for Degree forms.

o 2/3/16, 5 PM: Last day to request No Credit or Pass/Fail grade for a class using a schedule adjustment form. o 2/3/16, 5 PM: Last day to petition for a reduction in Ph.D. dissertation hours.

• February 4-April 4, 2016, 5 PM: To withdraw from a course, students must obtain instructor permission using the Schedule Adjustment Form and must bring the signed form to the Office of the Registrar. To add a course, students must petition through College/School undergraduate advising offices or the Graduate School, as appropriate.

• March 21-27, 2016: Spring break- no classes, campus open. • April 5, 2016: The Office of the Registrar now requires both the instructor’s signature and a CLAS advisor’s/dean’s signature on a

Schedule Adjustment Form to withdraw from a class. Students should consult their home college advising office for details. • April 18, 5 PM: Deadline for undergraduate CLAS students to withdraw from a course without filing a late withdrawal petition. Contact

CLAS Advising (NC 1030 – 303-556-2555). • May 14, 2016: End of semester. • June 24, 2016: Final grades available on the Passport ID portal and on transcripts (tentative).

• Please contact an academic advisor if you have questions or concerns.
