MATH 232, Spring 2017, COURSE INFORMATION TEXT: Calculus by James Stewart (8th edition) PREREQUISITE: A grade of C or better in Math 230 GRADING: Your grade will be based on a total of 650 points as follows: 3 one-hour exams 300 points Final exam 200 points Homework/quizzes 150 points FINAL EXAM: The departmental final exam is on Thursday, May 11th, 8-9:50 a.m. (in the morning.) The place of the final exam will be announced later. CALCULATORS: A calculator without graphing capability, text memory, symbolic operations and communication ability will be allowed on the final exam. COURSE WITHDRAWAL: The last day for undergraduates to withdraw from a full-session course is Friday, March 10th. ACADEMIC CONDUCT: Academic honesty and mutual respect (student with student and instructor with student) are expected in this course. Mutual respect means being on time for class and not leaving early, being prepared to give full attention to class work, not reading newspapers or other material in class, not using cell phones or pagers during class time, and not looking at another student's work during exams. Academic misconduct, as defined by the Student Judicial Code, will not be treated lightly. DRC STATEMENT:Northern Illinois University is committed to providingan accessible educational environment in collaboration with theDisability Resource Center (DRC). Any student requiring an academicaccommodation due to a disability should let his or her faculty memberknow as soon as possible. Students who need academic accommodationsbased on the impact of a disability will be encouraged to contacttheDRC if they have not done so already. TheDRC is located on the 4thfloor of the Health Services Building, and can be reachedat 815-753-1303 (V) or drc@niu.edu.________________________________________________________________________ MATH 232, Fall 2016, TENTATIVE SCHEDULE OF LECTURES Your instructor will work around this schedule and add additional topics as time permits. Fundamental concepts like curvature, torsion, the {T,N,B} frame, and forces in accelerated coordinate systems may well be covered. The calculation of surface area in general and the profound theorems of Stokes and Gauss may be discussed as well, as they should be.
