## MATHEMATICS 162-S9 *
CALCULUS II

## SPRING 2018

### Text

*Essential Calculus, Second Edition,* by James
Stewart

### Course content

This course covers most topics in Chapters 5, 6 and 8 of the
textbook, and some topics in Chapters 7 and 9. Most of the material will
be presented in a manner consistent with the presentation in the text; however,
some may not.

### Homework

Completion of the homework is a course requirement. The
homework will generally be collected on Fridays in the lab. Your solutions must
be written neatly and must show your work. No late homework will be accepted.
Homework assignments can be found at __http://www.math.miami.edu/~saveliev/hwk162.html__

### Quizzes

Quizzes will occur once a week on Fridays in the lab, except
for the weeks when we have an exam. The quizzes will generally be based on
problems assigned for homework or discussed in class and the lab or similar to
those. Quizzes can be made up only if you have a good excuse and you notify me
about it before the quiz is given.

### Tests

There will be three tests and the final. The dates of the
tests will be announced at least one week in advance. The final exam is
scheduled for Thursday, May 3, from 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm.

### Grading

The lowest quiz score and the lowest homework score will be
dropped. The remaining scores will be weighted as follows: quizzes 10%,
homeworks 15%, each of the three tests 15%, and the final exam 30%. For the
final grade the following scheme will be used: overall scores of 90% and above
will definitely be an A, above 80% definitely a B, above 70% a C. If this scale
is adjusted at all, it will only be to lower the thresholds for the letter
grades (i.e. in your favor).
