Math 180, CALCULUS 1Spring 2008
Instructor: Dimiter Vassilev Office : Humanities Bldg, Office 447 Email: vassilev@unm.edu
Calculator: Not required. Graphing Calculators are NOT allowed on any inclass exam.
Text: Calculus & Its Applications, Eleventh Edition, by Goldstein, Lay, et al.
Please note the following guidelines for the course:
 Grades: Your grade will be based on your performance on the following assignments and exams. Your instructor may also give short inclass quizzes and special homework assignments that will contribute to your grade. To receive a C grade for this course you must have a passing grade on the core final exam and a passing grade overall.
Quizzes and Assignments 100 points
3 inclass tests 300 points
Final Exam 200 points
Total 600 points
Homework: Homework is due every Thursday. There will be one HW a week. You are encouraged to work
together on the homework, but you do need to write up your own solutions in your
own words (yes, please include words in your writeup!).
To help the grader, please write your solutions up
neatly and clearly (no points for work that the reader cannot
follow this is true for exams), and box your answers. Note that you will lose
points if your work is inconsistent with your answer. An incorrect answer
consistent with your work is worth more than a correct number, which is
inconsistent with your work.
The syllabus lists also recommended homework problems. These are NOT to be handed in. Keep all of your homework together in a folder so that if you are having trouble in the course, you can bring it with you when you go to see your instructor or get tutoring. The problems used on exams and quizzes are based on these homework problems. Work as many as it takes for you to understand the material.
 Attendance is mandatory, and if you have three or more unexcused absences, you may be dropped from the course. NOTE: it is YOUR responsibility to drop the course if you decide to stop attending. The syllabus contains boldprint notices that give the deadlines for dropping the course or making other changes.
 Missed Exams: If you miss an exam, contact your instructor immediately and provide a note (hardcopy or email) explaining your reason. Provide enough detail so that the instructor can check your excuse. Makeup tests will only be given if your excuse is valid. “I wasn’t ready for it” is not a valid excuse. Be aware that makeup exams are more difficult than the original exam. No exam scores will be dropped. Graphing Calculators are NOT allowed on any inclass exam. A note card can be used only on the final exam.
 Student Behavior: Students are expected to behave in a courteous and respectful manner towards the instructor and their fellow students. Please be on time for your lectures, turn off your cellphone and refrain from talking or doing any other activity that could be disruptive to the class. If you need to leave the class early, inform your instructor before the lecture starts.
 Disability Statement: We will accommodate students with documented
disabilities. During the first two weeks of the semester, those students should
inform the instructor of their particular needs and they should also contact
Accessibility Services in Mesa Vista Hall, Room 2021, phone 2773506.
In addition, they should see CATS Counseling and
Therapy Services;
 Academic support and tutoring: Center for Academic Program Support (CAPS) on 3rd floor Zimmermann Library (2774560) or at the Calculus Table, 3^{rd} floor of Dane Smith Hall near the elevator, Monday through Friday, 9am  2pm. In addition, the course Math 110 (1 unit/CRNC) is a free optional course that is designed specifically for Math 180 students with algebra deficiencies. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
