Text: Worldwide Integral Calculus with infinite series by David B. Massey and Worldwide Multivariable Calculus by David B. Massey. Both texts are required. PDF and printed versions available at:
http://www.centerofmathematics.com/wwcomstore/index.php

The PDF textbooks contain a link, at the beginning of each section, to one or more free video lectures by Prof. Massey, on the contents of that section. The PDFs have hyperlinked Tables of Contents, Indices, and cross-references; you may need to activate the Forward and Back buttons in your PDF viewer to take full advantage of the hyperlinks.

The PDF textbook is $9.95. A paperback, printed, bound, gray-scale (no color) textbook can be ordered online for $29.99.

It is absolutely NOT required that you purchase a printed textbook.

Tests and Quizzes: We will have quizzes on Thursdays every week. Ordinarily there will be no make-up quizzes; instead, I will drop the two lowest quiz scores. There may be exceptions to this policy for students due to their religious observances or their participation in university-sponsored activities. Students should confer with me about such circumstances as far in advance as possible.

We will have two 65-minute tests during the semester: one on February 10 and the second on March 24 (these dates are tentative). In the rare event that a student misses one of these tests due to a university-sanctioned absence or religious observances, the final exam score will be counted in place of the test that was missed. The two hour, common, commonly graded, final exam will count as 40% of your grade in this course. You must take the final exam during the time it is scheduled unless you have a registrar-created conflict. The final will be given between April 17 and April 25. Do not make travel plans that conflict with the exam. There is no make-up for the final.

Homework: Homework will be assigned daily, but will not be collected. It is essential that you do all the homework. We will not be able to go over all homework problems in class, and even those that we do go over may not get worked out completely. Therefore, if you have a lot of questions on the homework, I strongly encourage you to come to see me during my office hours or make special appointments. It is very helpful to work on the homework in groups.

No Make-ups: There will be no make-ups for any of the class assignments: quizzes, tests, final. The only exceptions are provided by the University policy.

Snow Days: If classes are canceled due to snow, or for other official reasons, any scheduled quiz or exam will occur on the next class meeting.

Technology: All computers should be completely silent during all class meetings; this includes laptops, tablets, and cell phones. Students may use any form of computer technology to aid them during the lectures. During quizzes, tests, and the final only calculators are allowed. Graphing calculators are OK, but students are required to show all relevant work in order to receive credit.

Grading: The course grade will be determined as follows:
Final Exam: 40%
Tests: 30% (15% each)
Quizzes: 25% (The two lowest quiz grades will be dropped).
Class Participation: 5%

You will be graded on the following scale:

Total Average Grade for Course
93-100A
90-92 A-
87-89 B+
83-86 B
80-82 B-
77-79 C+
73-76 C
70-72 C-
67-69 D+
63-66 D
60-62 D-
0-59 F

As a matter of Math Department policy, the "I" grade (incomplete) will be given only rarely. It is intended to cover real emergency situations in which a student who is doing reasonably well ("C-" or better) is unable, due to circumstances beyond the student's control, to complete all course requirements (for example, is unable to take the final exam due to hospitalization). An "I" grade may not be used to rescue a failing grade, or to postpone the final.

Attendance: You are expected in class each day. If you are unable to come to a class for some reason, then (if possible) please send an e-mail to let me know. Attendance counts as part of your class participation grade.

Travel Plans: It is NOT possible to change the scheduled time for the final exam. So, do not make your travel plans to conflict with the final exam schedule.

Additional Resources: The Mathematics Department Tutoring Center is in Room 540B, Nightingale Hall. Tutoring should begin there two weeks after the start of classes. The tentative schedule is 10am-8pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays; 10am-6pm on Thursdays; and 10am-1pm on Fridays. This is walk-in tutoring; no appointment is necessary. If there is a discrepancy between how the tutors present material and how your instructor presents material, you should follow your instructor's presentation, but you should discuss the matter with your instructor.

The PDF textbook contains links at the beginning of each section to online full-length, free, video lectures on the contents of that section. These videos can also be accessed by going to http://www.centerofmath.org. In addition, there are video solution links for select exercises. If there is a discrepancy between how the videos present material and how your instructor presents material, you should follow your instructor's presentation, but you should discuss the matter with your instructor.

Issues with The Course/Instructor: If you have issues with this course and/or instructor which you are not comfortable discussing with your instructor, you should contact the course coordinator, Prof. Donald King, d.king@neu.edu. If you are not satisfied with his response, you should contact Prof. David Massey, d.massey@neu.edu.

Academic Honesty: The university views academic dishonesty as one of the most serious offenses that a student can commit while in college and imposes appropriate sanctions on violations. Cheating on a quiz or exam will not be tolerated. All incidents of cheating will be reported to the Office of Judicial Affairs. The University's policy on cheating and related disciplinary actions are detailed in the Student Handbook and at the following web site:
http://www.northeastern.edu/osccr/academicintegrity/
