Title:  Survey of Calculus 
Section:  105(Class Number 8840) 
Instructor:  Mark Barsamian 
Contact Information:  My contact information is posted on my web page. 
Office Hours:  By appointment. 
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 105 (Class Number 8840) meets at these times and locations:
Syllabus: For Section 105 (Class Number 8840), 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: Seven of our ten quizzes and three of our four inclass exams are on Fridays. We have a quiz on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving Break. 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 in order to extend your weekend or lengthen your Thanksgiving Break. 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 105 (Class Number 8840): During the semester, you will accumulate points as described in the table below.
Quizzes (best 8 of 10 quizzes, 20 points each):  160 points possible 
InClass Exams (best 3 of 4 exams, 200 points each):  600 points possible 
Cumulative Final Exam:  240 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.)
