Title:  Survey of Calculus 
Section:  100 (Class Number 9262) 
Instructor:  Mark Barsamian 
Contact Information:  My contact information is posted on my web page. 
Office Hours:  My office hours are posted on my web page. 
Course Description: A survey of basic concepts of calculus for students who want an introduction to calculus, but who do not need the depth of MATH 2301
Prerequisites: MATH 113 or MATH 1200 or Placement level 2 or higher.
Note: Students cannot earn credit for both MATH 1350 and either of MATH 2301
Class meetings: Section 100 (Class Number 9262) meets at these times and locations:
Syllabus: For Section 100 (Class Number 9262), this web page replaces the usual paper syllabus. If you need a paper syllabus (now or in the future), print this web page.
Calculators will not be allowed on exams.
Websites with Useful Math Utilities: In lectures, I often use a computer for graphing and calculating. The computer tools that I use are free online utilites that are easily accessible at the following link. (Link to free online Math Utilities) I use the same online utilities in my office, instead of a calculator. You are encouraged to use these same free online utilities instead of a calculator.
Student Resources (Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction (SI)): There are many mathrelated resources for students on the Athens Campus of Ohio University. For information, go to the following link. (Link to tutoring and SI resources)
Special Needs: If you have physical, psychiatric, or learning disabilities that require accommodations, please let me know as soon as possible so that your needs may be appropriately met.
Attendance Policy: Attendance is required for all lectures and exams, and will be recorded using signin sheets.
Missing Class: If you miss a class for any reason, it is your responsibility to copy someone’s notes or download my notes from the course web page, and study them. I will not use office hours to teach topics discussed in class to students who were absent.
Missing a Quiz or Exam Because of Illness: If you are too sick to take a quiz or exam, then you must
Missing Quizzes or Exams Because of University Activity: If you have a University Activity that conflicts with one of our quizzes or exams, you must contact me before the quiz or exam to discuss arrangements for a makeup. I will need to see documentation of your activity. If you miss a quiz or an exam because of a University Activity without notifying me in advance, you will not be given a makeup.
Missing Quizzes or Exams Because of Personal Travel Plans: All of our quizzes and three of our four inclass exams are on Fridays. This includes the Friday before Spring Break. Our final exam is on Wednesday, April 27. Please don't bother asking me if you can make up a quiz or exam, or take it early, because your ride home is leaving earlier in the day, or because you already bought a plane ticket with an early departure time. The answer is, No you may not have a makeup or take the quiz or exam early. You will just have to change your travel plans or forfeit that quiz or exam.
Cheating on Quizzes or Exams: If cheat on a quiz or exam, you will receive a zero on that quiz or exam and I will submit a report to the Office of Community Standards and Student Responsibility (OCSSR). If you cheat on another quiz or exam, you will receive a grade of F in the course and I will again submit a report to the OCSSR.
Grading for Section 100 (Class Number 9262): During the semester, you will accumulate points as described in the table below. (Note that no scores are dropped.)
Quizzes (10 quizzes, 20 points each):  200 points possible 
InClass Exams (4 exams, 150 points each):  600 points possible 
Cumulative Final Exam:  200 points possible 
Total:  1000 points possible 
At the end of the semester, your Total will be converted to your Course Grade as described in the table below. (Note that there is no curve.)
