  5. REQUIRED / SUGGESTED COURSE MATERIALS

    Required:

    NOTE: Students continuing from Calculus I fall 2015 do NOT need to purchase a new access code or text book.

    Students may choose EITHER
    A "My Math Lab" access code. (MML will be accessed from Canvas. The code can be purchased when signing into MML through Canvas.)

    OR

    The text book:
    Thomas' Calculus, 13th edition, Pearson
    ISBN-13: 9780321884077

    In addition to either of the above a graphing calculator is also required. (TI-83+ or TI-84 are used by the instructor in class and is recommended.)

    Suggested:
    None.

    You can buy your books online at the NMJC Bookstore.

  6. GRADING POLICY

    Students attending New Mexico Junior College will be evaluated according to the following grading scale:

    						90 - 100%	=	A
    						80 -  89%	=	B
    						70 -  79%	=	C
    						60 -  69%	=	D
    					 	 0 -  59%	=	F
    

     

    For this course your grade will be made up of the following:

    HOMEWORK:                                             15%   

    CHAPTER TESTS:                                     25%   

    ASSESSMENTS:                                          60%   

     

    HOMEWORK must be done online using MyMathLab (MML) at http://pearsonmylabandmastering.com/.  Homework due dates are posted in MML.  Assignments can be accessed beyond the due date without penalty because minimum scores are required to open following sections.  Final submission for all MML work will be Sunday before final exam week.  Each homework assignment must be completed with a minimum score of 80% to open the next assignment or test. 

     

    CHAPTER TESTS must also be done in MML.  There are only two attempts allowed for each chapter test.  Tests are timed at 120 minutes.  Use the first attempt to gauge your knowledge of chapter material.  Then use the “Review” option following it to go over your mistakes and see correct answers as preparation for a second attempt.  Another way to “review” an attempt of a test is to click on the grade book button and find the link next to the score on the test.  The required minimum score is 70. 

     

    ASSESSMENTS must be taken on paper in a secure testing center.  Assessments will be taken twice over the semester.  The first set is to be done after chapter 8.  The second set acts as the final exam in three parts- graphing and geometric applications, techniques of integration and infinite series.  Reviews for each assessment will be given in class, posted in Canvas or emailed.  Midcourse assessments will be discussed in class.  Final Assessments will be taken during at the appointed final exam time in the classroom.  Assessments make up 60% of the course grade and there can only be one attempt on each. 

     

  7. INSTITUTIONAL STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES

    New Mexico Junior College’s institutional student learning outcomes represent the knowledge and abilities developed by students attending New Mexico Junior College.

  10. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

    GETTING STARTED:  Login to Canvas, view and complete all items in the first two modules, connect to MyMathLab from the navigation button on left side of course page in Canvas.  Note: temporary access is allowed for two weeks so do NOT wait to start working on assignments. 

    RESOURCES to successfully complete Calculus: 

    ·        Plan each day/week according to due dates for assignments and tests (see calculation of time needed below);

    ·        Communicate with your instructor early and often to get help; 

    ·        Use “Brainfuse”, an online tutoring service as needed (click here to check out Brainfuse);

    ·        Go to the Academic Success Center to work with a tutor for homework help (NMJC Academic Success Center is located in room 123 Mansur Hall, phone number is 575-492-2624).

    EXPECTED CONDUCT:

    Ř  Participate in class- watch videos for each lesson from the Homework list in MML, take notes, complete section assignments and chapter tests, abide by deadlines and requirements.

    Ř  Do not use “Mathway” or other online problem solving apps.  Quick answers from using those things for progress through lessons and chapter tests come at a cost on assessments.  Maintaining an A on regular course work, but failing assessments will lead to a final grade of D or F. 

    This class will require consistent effort all semester.  Allowing yourself to fall behind will greatly increase probability of failure or need to withdraw.  If it gets stressful, be willing to make adjustments to your schedule and priorities.  Finishing a required class is a very temporary intrusion to your life.  Be realistic, consider how much you actually want to complete your education.  Do you really want to earn your way to a career with a high paying job or not?  Don’t sacrifice your greater life goals for things going on right now. 

    What will it take to earn credit for Calculus?

    “To-Do-List” of 46 assignment scores:

    ·        37 Sections;

    ·        5 chapter tests;

    ·        1 mid-course assessment;

    ·        3 final assessments

    Calculation of reasonable time required for each of the above components of the course:

    37 section assignments @ about 2 hours each = 74 hours

    5 Chapter Tests @ about 2 hours each = 10 hours

    Mid-course Assessment about 3 hours

    3 Final Assessments @ about 2 hours each = 6 hours

    Total = 93 hours

    All this should fit into 15 weeks of class.  Allow for first week of “getting started” and we have 14 weeks- 93 hours / 14 weeks = 6.6 or round UP for safe approximate of 7 hours per week. 

    Some weeks will take more some will take less to meet deadlines.  This is the reality of what it takes to accomplish the stated objectives which warrant credit hours on a degree plan or preparation for the next course. 

    If you know you cannot commit to this amount of work, consider changing your schedule before the refund period expires to avoid waste of time and money.  (Refund period is through the first week of class only.  Check the academic calendar for the actual date and make a decision before then.)

     

     

     

  11. GENERAL/MISCELLANEOUS

    Students will be held responsible for the information on these pages.

    Academic Honesty
    Each student is expected to maintain the highest standards of honesty and integrity in online academic and professional matters. The College reserves the right to take disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal, against any student who is found guilty of academic dishonesty or otherwise fails to meet these standards. Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, dishonesty in quizzes, tests, or assignments; claiming credit for work not done or done by others; and nondisclosure or misrepresentation in filling out applications or other College records. Cheating or gaining illegal information for any type of graded work is considered dishonest and will be dealt with accordingly.

    Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Information
    Any student requiring special accommodations should contact the Special Needs Student Services Coordinator at (575) 492-2576 or by e-mail at specialneeds@nmjc.edu.

    Attendance Policy
    Attendance is required at every session of each course for which the student is enrolled. When unavoidable circumstances make attendance impossible, students must provide a satisfactory explanation of their absences to their professors. College-sponsored activities are considered excused absences and the appropriate sponsor of those students who will be absent from class will notify professors. Students having absences due to college-sponsored activities will need to make arrangements with the affected classes / professor to take care of required work; however, arrangements for make-ups should be made within a reasonable time frame, usually within one week of the absence. Regarding make-up work, absences due to late registration are considered the same as regular absences.

    Cell Phones/Pagers
    All cell phones and pagers must be turned off when the student is participating in any lecture, laboratory, or other learning activity.

    Classroom Conduct
    The professor is responsible for maintaining a class environment best suited for effective learning. By registering for this class, the student is assumed to have entered into an agreement with New Mexico Junior College and the professor to attend the class regularly and to behave in an appropriate manner at all times. Disruptive behavior may result in the student being removed from the class.

    Food and Drink Policy
    Food items and soft drinks may not be consumed in NMJC classrooms. Students are also discouraged from bringing food and drink items into the classroom even though these items remain in sealed packaging. Bottled water is permissible.

    No Children in the Classroom
    In order to adhere to instructional procedures as well as maintain the safety of children, NMJC’s policy of no children in the classrooms (lecture, lab, etc.) will be followed.

    Plagiarism
    Offering the work of another as one’s own, without proper acknowledgment, is plagiarism; therefore, any student who fails to give credit for quotations or essentially identical expression of material taken from books, encyclopedias, magazines and other reference works, or from the themes, reports, or other writings of a fellow student, is guilty of plagiarism. Plagiarism violates the academic honesty policy and is considered cheating.

    Smoking/Use of Tobacco
    New Mexico Junior College is cognizant of the health hazards associated with smoking / use of tobacco for the smoker, as well as the non-smoker. In an effort to provide a healthy environment for students, employees, and others who may frequent the campus, NMJC prohibits smoking / use of tobacco inside any campus building or facility.

    Tutoring Assistance
    Free tutoring services are available to all NMJC students through Brainfuse and the Academic Success Center located in Mansur Hall room 123 and 124.

    Withdrawal Policy
    Regular, punctual attendance is required for all classes at NMJC. Although the professor has the right to drop any student who has missed the equivalent of 2 weeks of instruction (based on a 16 week semester) whether it’s a face to face, online, or a hybrid course, it is not guaranteed that the professor will drop the student. If the student chooses to stop attending a class, he/she should withdraw from the class by accessing your student account in the T-Bird Web Portal at www.nmjc.edu, or submitting the required paperwork to the Registrar’s Office by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, 2017. All students are encouraged to discuss their class status with the professor prior to withdrawing from the class.
