Math 221 Course Syllabus
Fall 2001

Instructor: Prof. Sigurd B. Angenent
Lecture: MWF 2:25-- 3:15, Room B130
Text book: Calculus and Analytic Geometry, by Thomas and Finney, 5th edition.
Grades: The course grade will be based on two midterm exams, the final exam, and your discussion section grade. In total you can get 100 points: 20 per midterm, 20 from your discussion section, and 40 from the final exam. The total scores will then be curved. (Past experience shows that one needs roughly(!) 85 points or more to get an A, while at least 55 points are usually needed to score above an F.) The precise curve will NOT be determined until after the final exam.
Exams: There will be two midterm exams. These will be 50 minute exams held in class, and will be announced well in advance. "Make-up exams" cannot be given, except in the most unusual circumstances.
The final exam will be held as announced in the time table.
TAs: Joshua Davis, Fernando Miranda, Edith Adan, Mike McQuista
Office hours: Monday & Wednesday, 10am to 11 am, or contact me after class for an appointment.
Calculators: You may use a graphing calculator on the exams as long as it does not have a computer algebra system. This excludes the TI-89, and TI-92, but allows TI-82, TI-85, TI-86, or similar machines.

A message concerning the timetable:
In Math 222 in the coming spring semester there will be three large lectures with associated discussion sections. There will also be eight lectures which meet each session with the same teacher, i.e. they do not have separate discussion sections. Most of these meet Monday through Friday at the same time for fifty minutes. One is an evening section which meets for seventy five minutes on just three evenings. If you find the presentation in the timetable confusing, note that the three lecture-discussion groups are listed in detail below all of the lectures.
