Course information:

Instructor: Jake Wildstrom
Office: Natural Sciences Building 113
Primary office hours: Wednesday 15:30–16:30, Thursday 13:00–14:00
Secondary office hours: Monday 15:30–16:30, Tuesday 14:00–15:00, or by appointment

E-mail: djwild01@louisville.edu
Lecture: MWF 11:00–12:15 in Natural Sciences Building 110
Prerequisites: MATH 205 or ENGR 101.
Textbook: Calculus, Early Transcendentals by James Stewart, seventh edition.
Learning Outcomes: Students who complete this course will be expected to be able to use all standard methods for calculating integrals, apply integrals to calculation of areas, volumes, and other physical quantities, comprehend differential equations and polar coordinates, and interpret infinite sequences and series.
General Education Content: MATH 206 is a general education course and may not be taken pass/fail. This course satisfies the university general education requirement in the mathematics content area. Students who satisfy this requirement will demonstrate that they are able to do all of the following: represent mathematical informaiton symbolically, visually, and numerically; use arithmetic and geometric models to solve problems; interpet mathematical models such as formulas, graphs, and tables; estimate and check answers to mathematical problems, determining reasonableness and correctness of solutions.
Responsibilities: You are responsible for attending class on a regular basis and maintaining comprehension of the scheduled class objectives. You are expected to be participants in class, attend assessments, and to revise returned assessments when appropriate. Assignments are provided for your benefit and you are expected to work on them as necessary.
Special needs: Any scheduled absence during a quiz or examination, or any other special needs, must be brought to my attention during the first week of class. Unscheduled absences will be handled on a case-by-case basis, with exceptions generally made only for documented emergencies.
Calculators: Calculators are unnecessary for any in-class work, and may not be used on quizzes or examinations. Calculators will also be unnecessary for most homework problems, but may be used at your discretion. For any calculation more complicated than the evaluation of simple functions, you are expected to show your work.
Honesty: There are many resources available to help you succeed in this class, including consultation during office hours and cooperation with other students. It is important, however, that all work handed in be the result of your individual comprehension of the course material. Duplication of others' work is both a disservice to your own education and a serious violation of the university's academic honesty policy.
Grades: Homework assignments are ungraded and are provided for study purposes. Quizzes will be based on the homework problems, and will account for 30% of your grade. The three midterm examinations will each be worth 15%, and the comprehensive final examination is worth 25%. A 90% overall guarantees a grade of A–, 80% guarantees a B–, and 70% guarantees a C–. All in-class assessments except for the final exam may be revised to recover up to a quarter of the lost credit; refer to the revision instructions on page 2 of the syllabus when revising.
Changes: The syllabus is subject to change. Changes will be announced in class and updated online.
