**Textbook:** Applied Calculus with Linear Programming, by Barnett and
Ziegler, (this is similar but not identical to the 5th edition of Barnett
and Ziegler's
*Applied Calculus*)
**Prerequisites**: M301 with grade of B, M305G with grade of C, or satisfactory
score on SAT II. If you do not meet these requirements you will __AUTOMATICALLY__
be dropped from the course.
**Syllabus:** Chapters 1, 2, 3, and 4, plus sections 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3.
**Sections**: You are assigned, according to your unique number, a section
that meets on Mondays and Wednesdays, either 8-9 AM or 5-6 PM. Sections
will meet beginning September 6.
**Attendance**: Attendance in lecture and in discussion section is mandatory.
**Homework and quizzes**: There will be weekly problem sets. These
will not be collected, but will be the basis for short quizzes given every
Wednesday in section.
**Exams:** There will be three in-class midterm exams, on September
21, October 24 and November 21, plus a final exam on December 16.
These exams will all be closed book. However, each student will be allowed
to bring a single letter-sized ``crib sheet'' (2-sided) to each midterm,
and 2 crib sheets to the final. These notes must be __HANDWRITTEN ORIGINALS
- NO XEROXING ALLOWED__.
**Grading:** Each midterm counts 20%. The final exam counts 40%. The
homework quizzes, taken together, count 20%. At the end of the term I will
drop your lowest 20%. The final grade distribution is neither a straight
scale nor a fixed curve. It depends on how well the class does as a whole,
but I have typically given more B's than C's, more C's than A's, more A's
than F's, and more F's than D's.
**Coordination**: This section is being coordinated with Dr. Adriana
Sofer's M403K section (lectures MWF 10-11). For information on her
section, see http://www.ma.utexas.edu/users/asofer
**Honor system:** There will be a vote on the first day of class
on whether to govern the class by the honor system. See accompanying
page
for details.
**Disabilities: **The University of Texas at Austin provides upon request
appropriate academic accommodations for qualified students with disabilities.
