Many students find a graphing calculator
useful in this course. The recommended calculator is the TI83 Plus. The
lecturer and the recitation instructor can provide limited help in the
operation of these calculators. Students may use other brands and models of
calculators, but they are on their own if they have problems. However,
computers and
calculators WILL NOT BE PERMITTED on exams.
Course purpose. This course
is intended to provide an introduction to calculus for students in the
biological sciences, business, economics, and pharmacy. Math 136 and Math 138
are possible continuations of this course. There is another calculus sequence,
Math 151, 152, and 251, intended for students in mathematical and physical
sciences, engineering, and computer science. Taking Math 152 after Math 135 is
permitted but is quite difficult. Math 136 and Math 138 do not satisfy
the prerequisite for Math 251. Students for whom taking either Math 152 or Math
251 is a serious possibility are strongly encouraged to start calculus with
Math 151, not Math 135.
Course topics: The course will cover the bulk of the material in
Chapters 15 of the text. However, Section 1.4 will be skipped and, in
consequence, we will not consider inverse trigonometric functions. The planned content of each lecture is described at
the end of this syllabus.
For a review of preliminary topics
(Sections 1.11.3) see this 50 minute audio/visual presentation: How to do well in calculus/
The term grade will be based on the results
of the examinations, on the scores on quizzes in recitation, and on the
performance on the WeBWorK assignments. Here is more
information about the individual components of the grade:
Exams: There will be two midterm exams and a cumulative final. The midterm
exams will count 100 points each and the final will count 250 points. Exams
will be closed book and studentprepared formula sheets will not be permitted.
An official formula sheet will be provided with each exam. The dates of the
midterm exams will be June 21 and July 12. The final exam will be on
July 23.
All exams are written by the lecturer.
Homework and Quizzes: Homework problems are assigned for each
class (see
http://www.math.rutgers.edu/courses/135/135su10/homeworkproblems.html.
Students are expected to work on the problems for a particular class
before the next class. Homework will not be collected.
However, students are encouraged to ask questions about problems
with which they had difficulty. During almost every class there will
be a brief (10 minute) quiz covering material discussed during the
previous class. This quiz will consist of one or two problems similar to the homework
problems related to the previous class. Together
the quizzes will count 75 points toward the term grade.
WeBWorK: The Mathematics Department provides a Webbased
system called WeBWorK that allows students to work on
selected problems and to submit answers until they get the problem right. Each
student gets different versions of the problems to solve. WeBWorK
assignments must be done online. The WeBWorK grade
counts 75 points toward the term grade and is determined by how many problems
the student eventually gets right, not on the number of tries needed to get the
correct answer.
In summary, here are the components of the
term grade with their maximum possible points:

Points 
Hour Exams 
200 
Final Exam 
250 
Recitation
Quizzes 
75 
WebWork Problems 
75 
Total 
600 
Grading standards: The meanings of the grades in Math 135 are related
to the probable success of the student in Math 136. Grades of A or B indicate
that the student is wellprepared for Math 136. A grade of C indicates that the
student can probably succeed in Math 136, but that they will have to work
harder in Math 136 than they did in Math 135. A grade of D suggests that
although the student is allowed to take Math 136, the chances of success are
quite small.
Academic Integrity: Students are expected to be aware of and abide by
the University’s Interim Academic Integrity Policy as described at
http://academicintegrity.rutgers.edu/integrity.shtml
