COURSE DESCRIPTION

MATH 1476 BUSINESS CALCULUS AND APPLICATIONS II (4-4-0). A course treating multivariable calculus and its applications for business students, as well as selected other business applications. Topics include functions of several variables and their derivatives, partial differentiation, optimization problems and LaGrange multipliers, special methods of integration, differential equations, probability and calculus, Taylor polynomials and infinite series, and topics in matrix theory and linear programming. Prerequisites: MATH 1425 or MATH 2413 or the equivalent. (MTH 1684)
PREREQUISITES: MATH 1425 or MATH 2413 or the equivalent. (MTH 1684)

COMMON COURSE OBJECTIVES: MATH 1476, Business Calculus II


To the instructor: These are to be printed in hard copy on the handout and can be found at: http://www2.austin.cc.tx.us/mthdept2/tfcourses/obj1476.htm

REQUIRED TEXTS/MATERIALS


Text: Applied Calculus with Linear Programming A Special Edition by Barnett & Ziegler, Pearson Custom Publishing.

Calculator: Students need either a scientific or business calculator. If you cannot purchase one, they are available from the library. Graphing calculators are fine, but their use may be restricted on the graphing test. Most ACC faculty are familiar with the TI family of graphing calculators. Hence, TI calculators are highly recommended for student use.  Other calculator brands can also be used.  Your instructor will determine the extent of calculator use in your class section.
INSTRUCTIONAL METHODOLOGY

This course is taught in the classroom primarily as a lecture/discussion course.


COURSE RATIONALE

This is the second course in a two-course business calculus sequence. The course covers more multivariable calculus, differential equations, probability, numerical techniques and linear programming. The course stresses applications in business and economics, and is intended to give students the appropriate conceptual and computational mathematical background for future study in business.




EVALUATION/GRADING SCHEME

The instructor is to insert his/her own policy if any on the following:

Grades Testing in class r testing center or both.

Homework Corrections:

Retake/makeup: Lab requirements:

Student participation:

Incomplete Grade Policy


Incomplete grades (I) will be given only in very rare circumstances. Generally, to receive a grade of "I", a student must have taken all examinations, be passing, and after the last date to withdraw, have a personal tragedy occur which prevents course completion.
Attendance/ Withdrawal Policy (withdrawal deadline is ----------)

Attendance is required in this course. Students who miss more than 4 classes may be withdrawn



It is the student's responsibility to initiate all withdrawals in this course. The instructor may withdraw students for excessive absences (4) but makes no commitment to do this for the student. After the withdrawal date, neither the student nor the instructor may initiate a withdrawal.

Reinstatement policy: The instructor is to insert his/her own policy if any

STUDENT SERVICES

The web address for student services is: http://www.austincc.edu/support The ACC student handbook can be found at: http://www.austincc.edu/handbook/


TESTING CENTER POLICY

ACC Testing Center policies can be found at: http://www.austincc.edu/testctr/

When a test is given in the testing center a deadline will be given and if a test is not taken by that deadline it will be considered as a missed test, see grading policy above.

Course-Specific Support Services


Sometimes sections of MATH 0165(1-0-2) are offered. The lab is designed for students currently registered in Business Calculus and Applications II, Math 1476. It offers individualized and group setting to provide additional practice and explanation. This course is not for college-level credit. Repeatable up to two credit hours. Students should check the course schedule for possible offerings of the lab class

ACC main campuses have Learning Labs which offer free first-come first-serve tutoring in mathematics courses. The locations, contact information and hours of availability of the Learning Labs are posted at: http://www.austincc.edu/tutor



Statement on Students with Disabilities


Each ACC campus offers support services for students with documented physical or psychological disabilities. Students with disabilities must request reasonable accommodations through the Office of Students with Disabilities on the campus where they expect to take the majority of their classes. Students are encouraged to do this three weeks before the start of the semester.

It is also recommended that instructors add the following:

Students who are requesting accommodation must provide the instructor with a letter of accommodation from the Office of Students with Disabilities (OSD) at the beginning of the semester. Accommodations can only be made after the instructor receives the letter of accommodation from OSD.
Statement on Scholastic Dishonesty

Acts prohibited by the college for which discipline may be administered include scholastic dishonesty, including but not limited to, cheating on an exam or quiz, plagiarizing, and unauthorized collaboration with another in preparing outside work. Academic work submitted by students shall be the result of their thought, work, research or self-expression. Academic work is defined as, but not limited to, tests, quizzes, whether taken electronically or on paper; projects, either individual or group; classroom presentations; and homework.



Statement on Scholastic Dishonesty Penalty


Students who violate the rules concerning scholastic dishonesty will be assessed an academic penalty that the instructor determines is in keeping with the seriousness of the offense. This academic penalty may range from a grade penalty on the particular assignment to an overall grade penalty in the course, including possibly an F in the course. ACC's policy can be found in the Student Handbook under Policies and Procedures or on the web at:

http://www.austincc.edu/handbook

Statement on Academic Freedom


Institutions of higher education are conducted for the common good. The common good depends upon a search for truth and upon free expression. In this course the professor and students shall strive to protect free inquiry and the open exchange of facts, ideas, and opinions. Students are free to take exception to views offered in this course and to reserve judgment about debatable issues. Grades will not be affected by personal views. With this freedom comes the responsibility of civility and a respect for a diversity of ideas and opinions. This means that students must take turns speaking, listen to others speak without interruption, and refrain from name-calling or other personal attacks.
Statement on Student Discipline

Classroom behavior should support and enhance learning. Behavior that disrupts the learning process will be dealt with appropriately, which may include having the



student leave class for the rest of that day. In serious cases, disruptive behavior may lead to a student being withdrawn from the class. ACC's policy on student

discipline can be found in the Student Handbook under Policies and Procedures or on the web at: http://www.austincc.edu/handbook
