    Course Webpage:

    Course Prerequisites: Math 1426 Required Textbook: Thomas’ Calculus Early Transcendentals

    Course Description: Parts of Chapters 6,8,10,11 and 12 of the text. For

     more information, consult the assignment sheet.

    Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of Math 2425, the student should be able to

    compute the area between two curves, in both rectangular and polar coordinates;

    compute volumes and surface areas of solids of revolution, in both rectangular

    and polar coordinates; compute arc length of both polar and rectangular curves

    compute the value of integrals by the methods of integration by parts,

    trigonometric substitutions and partial fractions

    compute the value of improper integrals

    compute limits of sequences and series

    determine the radius of convergence of power series; differentiate and integrate

    power series

    represent a known function as a Taylor series; approximate a known function

    with a Taylor polynomial and determine the error involved

    compute the standard representation of a vector in 3-space, compute the dot

    product and cross product of vectors

    write equations of lines, planes, and quadric surfaces in 3-space

    justify and explain their steps in problem solving. In particular, students should

    be able to construct correct and detailed mathematical arguments to justify their

    claimed solutions to problems.

Grading Scale: 90-100 A

     80-89 B

    70-79 C

    60-69 D

    0-59 F

    Grade Components: Midterm 1 20%

     Final Exam 35%

    Saturday, December 5, 2009 from 3-5:30 pm

     Lab 20%

The Lab component will consist of 5 quizzes, for 10% of the total number of

    possible points, given alternating Thursdays at the end of Lab; the dates are 9/3,

    9/24, 10/8, 10/29, 11/12. The other 10% of the total number of possible points

    will consist of graded projects, collected on the following Thursdays: 9/10, 10/1,

    10/15, 11/5, 11/19. There will be no make-up quizzes or projects.

    Midterms and Finals: These exams are departmental, i.e., all sections of Math 2425 will take the same exam and the grades will have the same weight in each

    section. All of these exams are comprehensive. The format of each exam will be

    approximately half multiple choice problems and half show-your-work problems.

Any student who scores below 50 on the final exam cannot receive a

    grade higher than D in the course.

Recent exams can be accessed online at HYPERLINK

    "" All midterms and

    some final exams are also available in the Science Education and Career Center,

    106 Life Sciences Building.

    Make-up Policy: If you have a conflict with either midterm or final, you must contact the course coordinator no later than Census Date (September 9), by

    using a form attached to the coordinator's office door (PKH 448) and submitting

    it together with necessary documentation as indicated on the form. You may also

    contact the coordinator by e-mail ( HYPERLINK "" no later than February 4. Do not assume that you e-mail has been received if there is no response from the coordinator. If a conflict arises

    after September 9, contact the coordinator immediately. Delays in submitting

    a make-up request may mean that your request cannot be approved.

Drop Policy: The last day this semester to drop a course is Friday, October 30

    at 5 pm. Any student who drops the course on or before October 30 will receive

    a W. Students must contact an advisor in their major in order to drop a


Calculators: The only calculators allowed for the midterms and final are TI-

    30XA and TI-30XIIS. If you wish to use a different calculator, then you

    must get permission to do so BEFORE an exam. Only nonprogrammable calculators with basic computational features, such as arithmetic and

    transcendental functions will be allowed. Calculators with the following features

    are NOT allowed: graphing, equation solving, differentiation and integration. Any

    device that has internet or e-mail capabilities this includes cell phones -

    and any device with a QWERTY keyboard are also not permitted.

Americans with Disabilities Act: The University of Texas at Arlington is on

    record as being committed to both the spirit and letter of federal equal

    opportunity legislation; reference Public Law 93112 - The Rehabilitation Act of

    1973 as amended. With the passage of new federal legislation entitled Americans

    with Disabilities Act (ADA), pursuant to section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act,

    there is renewed focus on providing this population with the same opportunities

    enjoyed by all citizens.

    As a faculty member, I am required by law to provide "reasonable accommodation" to students with disabilities, so as not to discriminate on the

    basis of that disability. Student responsibility primarily rests with informing

    faculty at the beginning of the semester and in providing authorized

    documentation through designated administrative channels.

Academic Dishonesty: It is the philosophy of The University of Texas at

    Arlington that academic dishonesty is a completely unacceptable mode of

    conduct and will not be tolerated in any form. All persons involved in academic

    dishonesty will be disciplined in accordance with University regulations and

    procedures. Discipline may include suspension or expulsion from the University.

"Scholastic dishonesty includes but is not limited to cheating, plagiarism,

    collusion, the submission for credit of any work or materials that are attributable

    in whole or in part to another person, taking an examination for another person,

    any act designed to give unfair advantage to a student or the attempt to commit

    such acts." (Regents Rules and Regulations, Part One, Chapter IV, Section 3,

    Subsection 3.2, Subdivision 3.22)

    Grade Replacement and Grade Exclusion Policies: These policies are described in detail in the University catalog and can also be founded online at

     HYPERLINK "" The deadline for filing a grade replacement request is Census Date, September 9.

Student Disruption: The University reserves the right to impose disciplinary

    action for an infraction of University policies. For example, engagement in
