__ Course Description__: We will cover the following topics:
trigonometric functions and their inverses; real and complex zeros of
polynomials; polar coordinates; DeMoivre's theorem; conic sections; solutions
of linear systems of equations by substitution and elimination; systems
of non-linear equations; systems of inequalities; and arithmetic and
geometric sequences.

__ Prerequisites__: Three and a half years of high school math,
or a C- in Math 1031 or Math 1051, or a placement exam.

__ Required Textbook__:

__ Calculator Policy__: You are allowed to use only a

`sin x`

, `cos`^{-1} x

, ```
log
x
```

, `ln x`

, `e`^{x}

, etc. Graphing
calculators or calculators which can do symbolic manipulations are not
permitted. If you aren't sure if your calculator is acceptable, ask.
__ Exams__: You will have three midterm exams. Each will be a
one hour exam, and you will take them during the lecture hour. You will
also have a comprehensive final exam at the end of the semester. The dates
are:

First Midterm | Friday 9/27/02 | 12:20-1:10pm |

Second Midterm | Wednesday 10/23/02 | 12:20-1:10pm |

Third Midterm | Wednesday 11/20/02 | 12:20-1:10pm |

Final Exam | Monday 12/16/02 | 1:30-4:30pm |

__ Make up Exams__: Because you are registered for this
lecture, I assume that you have no other conflicts during our alloted time.
Therefore you should be able to take the midterm exams during the normal
time. Make up exams will be permitted only in very serious and unavoidable
circumstances. Emergency surgery would qualify; a routine appointment
which could be moved will not. You've been told when the exams are --
keep those days clear of other conflicts!

__ Homework__: Homework is an important part of the course;
the only way to learn mathematics is by

Mathematicians often work together, and I encourage you to do the same
with your homework. Feel free to discuss problems with your classmates.
However, *you must write up your homework solutions on your own.*
Handing in homework which is identical (or nearly identical) to a
classmate's is a form of cheating, and I consider it unacceptable! At
best, you will receive no credit for any homework like this, and the
consequences could be more severe than that. Consider yourself warned.

Your homework should be:

- neatly and clearly written. You must show your answer
*and*your work to arrive at that answer. Homework which is unreadable will receive little credit. - handed in on time, at the beginning of class. Late homework will be graded only under unusual circumstances.
- stapled, in order to form a more perfect union and promote the general welfare.

__ Attendance__: We will conduct the class under the
presumption that you have attended every lecture and recitation section.
In particular, you are responsible for any announcements made in class.
Note that your attendance in your recitation section will count towards
your grade.

__ Incompletes__: These are given only in extremely unusual
circumstances, and only if you arrange it with the instructor (not the TA)
in advance. Incompletes are given only if you have completed most of the
course material at a satisfactory level -- at least two midterms at a C
level -- but some terrible, unexpected event prevents you from finishing
the course. In particular,

__ Grading Policy__: Homework 15%; Recitation attendance 5%;
Midterms 20% each --

Homework | 15% |

Attendance | 05% |

Midterm | 20% |

Midterm | 20% |

Final Exam | 40% |

Total | 100% |
