     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 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.

     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.
