Office Hours: Tuesday 5:00-7:00 PM or by appointment in EC 3.908

Course Problem Session: Section 802 Thursday 8:30-10:20 PM in CB1.124 or

Section 804 Saturday 10:00-11:50 AM in CB1.124

Course Teaching Assistants: Troy Banks (Section 802) and Sara Weiss (Section 804)

Prerequisites: Math 5300 or equivalent

Textbook: Calculus with Applications 6th Edition by Lial, Greenwell and Miller. Addison-Wesley. (A student solution manual is available).

Course Description: To provide an understanding and motivation of the fundamental ideas of calculus, skill in using calculus techniques, and facility in applying calculus to economic and business analysis and modeling problems. Applications to be examined include models of coninuously compounded interest, depreciation to salvage value, learning curves in market penetration, valuation of income streams with interest or variability assumptions, optimal allocation of resources, Cobb-Doublas models, estimating constant production compensations, relation of marginal and average cose and revenue, effects of elasticity, and a variety of minor exercises involving scheduling, transportation, and inventory models. Students will be expected to relate the problems and their language to the mathematics and apply it correctly.

Grading Policy: The course grade will be determined as follows:

Quizzes - 20%
90-100 A

Exam 1 - 20%
80-89.9 B

Exam 2 - 20%
70-79.9 C

Cumulative Final - 40%
0-69.9 F

Homework assignments will be assigned at the end of each class and will be posted on the course web page. Homework will not be collected, but it is essential to do the homework to do well in the course.

Eleven quizzes will be given at the beginning of the problem session (not every problem session will have a quiz). The quizzes will last about 15-20 minutes. Of the 11 quizzes, only the top 10 grades will be counted toward the quiz grade. If a quiz is missed, it will be the one that is dropped.

All students are expected to take the exams at the announced time. If there is a conflict and you cannot make an exam, let me know beforehand so we can agree upon a procedure to make up the exam. In order for you not to get a zero on the exam we must have agreed upon a make up procedure. On exam days, lecture will be held from 8:35-9:45 PM (after the exam).

Academic Honesty Policy: Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated. This includes cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of academic records. That being said, you can help each other out on the homework (this does not mean that you can copy each other's homework).

Calculators: You may use calculators in this class. However, you will have to show your work to get the problem solution during the quizzes, exams, and final exam unless explicitly stated to the contrary.

Sage advice:

If you want to do well in the course: 1) Do all the homework. If possible
do extra problems to get additional practice. The more problems you have
done the better you will do on the quizzes and exams. 2) Ask questions
in class and the problem sessions. 3) If you are having difficulty doing
the homework or in the quizzes, see the instructor, teaching assistant,
or go to the Math Lab (MC2.408) for additional help.
