Recitation and
workshop signups will open Thursday, January 19th at 6:00pm. To sign up for a
workshop or recitation, go to your blackboard page. In the top right corner,
under My Organizations, you will see Spring 2017RecitationMTH164. Click that.
You will be taken to an instruction page. Please note that you may only select
one recitation time. If you have made a mistake, you will have to be manually
deleted from your incorrect choice before you can choose again. (See the
instruction page on how to do this.) This will lead to delays, and your desired
time might fill up. So choose carefully the first time. Doublecheck before you
click.
Syllabus:
Equations of lines and planes,
quadric surfaces, space curves, partial derivatives, linear approximation,
directional derivatives, extrema, Lagrange multipliers, double/triple integrals
including cylindrical and spherical coordinates. Line, surface, and volume
integrals, divergence theorem, Stokes' theorem.
Prerequisites:
MTH 143, 162, or 172.
Textbook:
Stewart's Calculus (Early
Transcendentals) 8th edition. (It is the same as 141143 and 161162. Older
editions of the textbook are fine.)
Midterm I will be at Hutchinson 141 from 0800 to 0930 on 03/02/2017. Materials covered is up to 02/23/2017. So you have one week to
review. The complain period for Midterm I is 03/0603/23/2017 (Two weeks not counting
spring break). Please go to your professor’s office hour during this period to
check if you have been graded according to the grading guideline. After
03/23/2017, even you were graded wrong, no corrections will be made. (Without a
deadline, nothing gets done.)
Midterm II will be at Hutchinson 141 from 0800 to 0930 on 04/06/2017. Materials covered is up to 03/30/2017. So you have one week to
review. The complain period for the Midterm II is 04/1004/19/2017. Please go
to your professor’s office hour during this period to check if you have been
graded according to the grading guideline. After 04/19/2017, even you were
graded wrong, no corrections will be made. (Without a deadline, nothing gets
done.)
The Final
is scheduled at 1600, Monday, May 8. Location: TBA. The final will have
part I and part II. If, in part I of the final, you get a higher score than
your lowest midterm, then the score in part I of the final replaces that lowest
midterm score of yours.
1. We use absolute grading
system. The cutoffs are 85% for A, 80% for A, 75% for B+, 65% for B, 60% for C+, 55% for C, 50% for C, 40% for D.
That is, if everyone gets above 85%, then everyone gets an A. To help students’
GPA, there is a wider range of B and there is no B or D+. To protect students
who get “on the edge” scores, like 84.9% in all exams, we do not use letter
grade until the final total garde.
2.
Grading of exam problems are done step by step according to the grading
guideline. Away from multiple choices, the final answer of every exam problem
has no points so you do not need to worry about a wrong simplification or
miscalculation at the last step. If a problem has multiple steps and one makes
a computational mistake in a middle step, then one receives half of the credit
of the leftover steps only if the method in the leftover steps is correct and
will yield a correct answer if the previous computational mistake was not made.
3. If you have a schedule conflict at
a midterm time, please notice your instructor at least two weeks ahead so that
we can schedule your an earlier exam.
4. If you miss one midterm, don’t
worry about it because part I of the Final will count towards that
automatically. If you miss the Final with valid excuses like illness or
emergency, you must notify the instructor and provide supporting documentation
which verifies your excuses as soon as possible. A makeup will be given in one
week of the original final. If you miss the final without a valid excuse or
supporting documentation, you will receive a score of 0 on the final and no
makeup will be given.
5. Incomplete "I" grades
are almost never given. The only justification is a documented serious medical
problem or a genuine personal/family emergency. Falling behind in this course or
problems with workload on other courses are not acceptable reasons.
6. You are responsible for knowing
and abiding by the University of Rochester's academic integrity code.
Any violation of academic integrity will be pursued according to the specified
procedures.
7. It is University of Rochester
policy to provide reasonable accommodations to students who have a documented
disability (e.g., physical, learning, psychiatric, vision, hearing, or
systemic) that may affect their ability to participate in course activities or
to meet course requirements. Students with disabilities are encouraged to
contact the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning and their instructor
for a confidential discussion of their individual need for academic
accommodations. The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning is located
in 1154 Dewey Hall.
8. Solely per student request, we are
uploading old exams for information. Please keep in mind that the old exmas MAY
NOT represent the new exam and the actual exam MAY NOT contain problems similar
to the old exams. The textbook, quizzes, and webwork are still the best sources
of exam materials. Download
Please notify your instructor of any
need for accommodations as early as possible, as it may not be possible to
honor accommodation requests made less than one week before an exam.
