Class Meeting Times:
MW 11:30 AM  12:20 PM
Location:
SC L32
Textbook:
Calculus: Single Variable, 5th ed. by HughesHallett, Gleason, et al.,
John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2009.
Aims of the course:
The goal of this course is to get a solid grounding in integral calculus. We want to have a thorough understanding of the concept of definite integral, know the basic techniques of integration, and be able to apply the integral to find volumes, work, arc length. We want also to be able to determine the convergence /divergence of improper integrals, sequences, and infinite series and find power series representations of functions and use them for approximation, evaluation of integrals and limits, etc. We will also begin an investigation of some differential equations.

No books, notes, or calculators will be allowed during any of the exams or quizzes. If you have a conflict with either these exams, you must let me know by
January 30.
Grading Policy
The course grade will be determined primarily on the basis of the
total numerical score achieved on the written homework, WeBWorK,
quizzes, group works, and exams.
You will be able to access your test scores at any time via
Moodle.
Your grade will be determined by the following weights:
 10% : Written Homework Assignments
 10% : Webwork Assignments
 8% : Quizzes
 7% : Group work sessions
 20% : Midterm 1
 20% : Midterm 2
 25% : Final
Homework
Graded homework comes in two forms. One form consists of
WeBWorK
problems and the other form is written assignments to be turned
during the semester.
 Written homework assignments.
There will be weekly written assignments to be turned in for a
grade. They are due every Monday at the beginning of class. Your homework papers will be
judged on both
the correctness of the
mathematics and the clarity of your writeups. I encourage you to
work together, but (obviously) the work you hand in should be your
own. Unlike high school, we will be spending almost no time in class
going over the homework problems. The two lowest homework grades will
be dropped to account for
any missed assignments due to illness or any other circumstance. Homework contributes 10% to

WeBWorK.
WeBWorK problems are done over the web and provide instant
feedback as to whether you have done a problem correctly or not. When you have
done a WeBWorK problem correctly, your credit for the problem is immediately
recorded in the database. You are encouraged to discuss problems with other
students, however WeBWorK problems are individualized for each student, so you
must do your own assignment. The two lowest WeBWorK grades will
be dropped to account for
any missed assignments due to illness or any other circumstance. WeBWorK problems count for 10% of the total grade.
Do not wait until the last day to complete these assignments.
Webwork deadlines will not be extended for individual students.
Webwork assignments are due on Wednesday at 8:00
PM of the week listed on the syllabus. The set orientationWW is meant to familiarize you with WeBWorK and will not count toward your grade. Webwork can be accessed by going to:
https://courses.webwork.maa.org/webwork2/swarthmoremath15/
Links to some useful WeBWorK pages: http://webwork.maa.org/wiki/Student_Information
WebWork Feedback: All WebWork problems have a button for "email instructor". Clicking
this button allows you to write a message that is emailed to the
instructors and TAs. Someone will get back to you within a day or so
(and maybe sooner). You do not have to copy out the problem (the system
automatically does this). If WebWork won't accept your answer, then say
what that answer is and how you came up with it. It helps us if you
give some idea of your thought process. Be aware that email sent after
5pm the night the set is due will almost certainly not get a
reply before the set closes.
Quizzes
We will have a quiz
every other Friday.
Quiz problems are taken from the homework
problems and classroom work. This allows you to gauge whether you are ready to work problems in a test
situation. Individual quizzes contribute 8% to the course average.
Makeup quizzes will not be given . If
you miss a quiz with a valid excuse, such as a serious illness or
emergency with supporting documentation, you should contact me in
person or via email as soon as you reasonably can. If your excuse is
undocumented, or I deem it invalid or not presented in a timely
manner, a zero will be averaged into your grade. The two lowest quiz
grades will be dropped.
You will be able to access your quiz scores at any time via
Moodle.
Group work sessions
We will have a group work session
every other
Friday in class.
In the group work session, exercises are solved in small
groups. Books, notes, or calculators are allowed during the group sessions. Group work sessions contribute 7%.
You will be able to access your group work scores at any time via
Moodle.
If you believe that you need accommodations for a disability, please
contact Leslie Hempling in the Office of Student Disability Services,
located in Parrish 130, or email lhempli1 to set up an appointment to
discuss your needs and the process for requesting
accommodations. Leslie Hempling is responsible for reviewing and
approving disabilityrelated accommodation requests and, as
appropriate, she will issue students with documented disabilities an
Accommodation Authorization Letter. Since accommodations may require
early planning and are not retroactive, please contact her as soon as
possible. For details about the Student Disabilities Service and the
accomodations process, visit

Calculus Study Sessions with the Math
Pirates! Come to work on your calculus homework with your
friends (math is more fun with a friend!)
and the calculussavvy
Pirates three evenings each week (where/when TBA)!
 Help is also available in the Math Clinic, staffed by
math majors and held in our department lounge from 7  10 pm Sunday through Thursdays.
 Kaitlyn Litwinetz, our department's friendly neighborhood Academic Support
Coordinator, is a terrific resource as wellshe is happy to have you drop by her office (SC 136) or
set up appointments with her.
 Be sure to visit my office hours or to make appointment with me.

Course schedule
Here is the planned schedule. There will no doubt be small changes as
the semester progresses. Remember that all WeBWorK homework is due
each Wednesday at 8:00 pm, a week after we have covered the material
in class, but it will be open when we start the material. All written homework is due on Monday at
the begin of class.
