MATH 232, Spring 2014, COURSE INFORMATION 
     
     TEXT:  Calculus, Northern Illinois University Edition, Volume 3
     (7th edition) by James Stewart. 
     
     PREREQUISITE: A grade of C or better in Math 230.
     
     COURSE OBJECTIVES: 
     To understand and connect concepts of the calculus with real world
     problems and other scientific disciplines.

     To value mathematics and develop an ability to communicate
     mathematics, both in writing and orally.

     To develop mathematical reasoning, and an ability to solve problems.

     To attain computational facility in multi-variable calculus.
     
     GRADING: Your grade will be based on a total of 600 points as
     follows: 
              3 one-hour exams   300 points
              Final exam         200 points
              Homework/quizzes   100 points
              
     FINAL EXAM: The departmental final exam is on Thursday, May 8th,
     8-9:50 a.m. 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 7th.
     
     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 providing 
     an accessible educational environment in collaboration with the
     Disability Resource Center (DRC). Any student requiring an academic 
     accommodation due to a disability should let his or her faculty member 
     know as soon as possible. Students who need academic accommodations 
     based on the impact of a disability will be encouraged to contact 
     theDRC if they have not done so already. TheDRC is located on the 4th 
     floor of the Health Services Building, and can be reached 
     at 815-753-1303 (V) or drc@niu.edu.
