The TI-83 Calculator is "required". You will be allowed to use the calculator on tests. Other calculators will be permitted, but you will be responsible for getting adequate functionality from them.

Instructor: Campbell, R. B. Wright 328. x-32447 e-mail: campbell Office hours: Unless there is excessive demand, office hours will not be restricted to specified times. You may either catch me after class, call me on the phone, or leave an e-mail message to find a time that is mutually convenient. (I shall generally be available after class.) N.B.: There will also be scheduled times when a graduate student or advanced undergraduate is available in Wright 338 to help you with the material in this course. Help is also available in the Math Lab (Center for Academic Achievement -- SSC 214).

There will be three tests worth 100 points each and a final worth between 100 and 200 points. A portion of the tests may be common to several sections of this course. Tentative test dates are:

   chapters 1, 2                                      12 September    100
   chapters 3, 4                                      17 October      100
   chapters 5, 6                                      21 November     100
   chapter  7, comprehensive                          17 December     125?
(The coverage and dates are tentative. I reserve the right to omit sections of the text and/or provide supplementary material, including material from chapters/sections not listed.)

There will also be about 10 quizzes worth 7 points each on the thursdays when there is not a test (there will be no quiz on December 12); the best seven will be added to your point total (i.e., 49 possible points). There will be no make-up quizzes.

Homework will be collected weekly, and in some manner contribute 50 possible points to your point total.

Attendance is not a component of your point total, but it is a courtesy to me to send me an e-mail (campbell@uni.edu) when you cannot attend class.

On Tuesday, September 03 I shall pass around a seating plan where you will indicate where you will sit for the remainder of the semester. I hope that this will facilitate my learning of your names and your learning of each other. Although I (as a representative of the faculty) and the library are two important reasons for coming to UNI to learn instead of reading books at home, your peers are also a valuable resource.

Although this text has undergone significant review, it is not perfect. I shall try to draw to your attention any inaccuracies I notice. You are invited to draw errata to my attention. You are also invited to correct any mistakes I make in lecture.

Those of you who live in the residence halls and wish a more informal atmosphere to interact with faculty are reminded of the `take a professor to lunch (or breakfast or dinner)' program. Check with your local residence hall desk for details.

This handout has been prepared using PC-Write. You should learn to use a word processor before you graduate. (It has been revised using the TPU texteditor on ICEMAN/COBRA/VIPER, textedit on a Sun, and Kedit under debian Linux.)

This course covers lines, polynomials, logarithms, and exponential functions. Most of you will have already seen these topics. It is hoped that this course will present them from a different perspective, which will be more useful to you.

In the event of a fire [alarm], Wright Hall may be exited by the stairwells which are located at each end (north and south) of the building. Fire extinguishers are located near each stairwell on each floor. In the event of a tornado, go to the corridor on the floor where your class is meeting, there is not room for everybody to gather on the ground floor if classes are in session; do not remain on the third (top) floor in the event of a tornado.
