|Prerequisites:||Math 211 (class taken with C- or better)|
|Additional materials:|| A standard scientific calculator such as the TI-30X IIS is recommended, and is the only type of calculator
allowed on exams. Graphing calculators are allowed in class and for
homework, but not on exams. On some assignments or parts of exams the
use of calculators of any kind will be prohibited.
|Course Structure:||This course will be structured the same as Prof. Sinha's Math 211 was structured,
which is probably different than any other math class you've taken.
We will have experience-building and mastery learning components of each unit,
with two units per week. Experience-building learning components include
"prework," where you must read new material and attempt four-to-six straightforward problems
to be handed in, as well as worksheets to be done in class in small groups.
Mastery learning components include lecture building on material from the pre-work and worksheets, and then homework problems to be done both correctly and clearly.
A typical week will be structured as follows:
There a few small changes from last term. Homework will be due on Tuesdays to give you more of a chance to get help with the more difficult problems. We will post comments on mistakes and partial solutions of prework worksheet problems (and not make those comments on individual papers). Also, Friday's lecture will be split into two parts, the second of which being discussion of the previous homework and worksheet questions (another exercise to aid mastery.)
In addition to pre-work/ worksheets/ homework and exams (see below), there will be two writing assingments, due on
|Exams:||There will be three exams. If you must miss any of these
exams, you must get my permission and schedule a make-up exam
|Grading:||20% Pre-work and worksheets |
10% Writing assignments
15% Each of three exams.
5% Review assignment due finals week.
