### COURSE DESCRIPTION

Math 165 is a calculus course intended for those studying business, economics, or other related business majors. The following topics are presented with applications in the business world: functions, graphs, limits, exponential and logarithmic functions, differentiation, integration, techniques and applications of integration, partial derivatives, optimization, and the calculus of several variables. Each textbook section has an accompanying homework set to help the student better understand the material.

### TEXTBOOK

Calculus and its Applications, 14th Edition, by Barnett, Ziegler, and Byleen.

MyMathLab access is REQUIRED for this course and the student has the option to purchase the text with MyMathLab or just MyMathLab

### CALCULATOR

A graphing calculator such as the TI-83 and TI-84 (including Plus models) is recommended, while a Scientific Calculator is required, such as a TI-30. TI-89, TI-nSpire Calculators, cell phones or any telecommunication devices are not allowed during exams or quizzes. Sharing calculators is also not allowed.

### PREREQUISITES

MATH 110 or a grade of C or better in MATH 121 or appropriate performance on the UIC mathematics placement test or a MATH ACT subscore of 27.

### GRADING

The course grade will be determined by Midterms, Quizzes, Homework Assignments, and the Final Exam shown in the table below. The grading scale of 90%(540 pts) for an A, 80%(480 pts) for a B, 70%(420 pts) for a C, and 60%(360 pts) for a D are guaranteed levels for each letter grade.

Two Midterm Exams | 100 points each |

Quizzes(best 6 of 8) | 120 points total |

Homework | 80 points total |

Final Exam | 200 points |

Total | 600 points |

### QUIZZES

Quizzes (20 points each) will be given throughout the semester and the best six quiz scores will be kept. Since two quizzes are being dropped, there are no make-ups on quizzes.

Quizzes will be given in Discussion classes on Tuesdays or Thursdays. Quiz dates will be announced in Lecture by your Instructor.

### EXAMS

Midterm Exams will be given in the evening for ALL Math 165 lectures.

Midterm 1 is scheduled for 6:00pm-7:15pm on Wednesday, October 10th.

Midterm 2 is scheduled for 6:00pm-7:15pm on Wednesday, November 14th.

Legitimate conflicts, such as Wednesday evening courses, should be discussed with your Instructor as soon as they are known. Make-ups will be scheduled under appropriate circumstances.
