Text: Calculus, Single Variable by Hughes-Hallett, Gleason, McCallum, et.al.; 2nd edition; published by Wiley.
Calculator: A TI-83 or TI-82 calculator is required. A TI-83 is preferred. It is essential that you bring your calculator to class each day.
Purpose: This is a course on differential calculus with an introduction to integral calculus. It is the first in a sequence of three courses designed to provide the skills and concepts necessary to either continue study in mathematics or physics, computer science, and engineering. This course is a part of the core requirements for any mathematics major.
Objectives: Upon completion of this course, students will have:
Topical Outline: This course covers Chapters 1 – 6 of the text. In particular the course covers:
Requirements: In order to accomplish the objectives of this course, the learner is required to:
Evaluation: Grading Scale: A [90, 100]; B [80, 90); C [70, 80), D [60, 70), F [0, 60)
Semester grade will be composed of the following:
Daily Grade (quizzes and homework) 20%
4 exams (announced at least 1 week in advance) (15% each) 60%
Comprehensive Departmental Common Final Exam 20%
Daily grade may include quizzes, homework assignments, projects, and classwork. Frequently we will have a pop quiz during the first 5 or 10 minutes of class. Unless you are told otherwise in advance, quizzes will be verbatim from the homework assignment you were asked to do for the previous day. Thus it is absolutely essential to complete homework faithfully! On any given day your homework assignment for that day or for any previous day might be taken up, with no prior notice. Three daily assignments will be dropped. (A small number of assignments may not be eligible for being one of the three drop grades; you will be notified of this when these assignments are made.) Make-up tests may be harder than the original. There will be no make-ups for daily grades, since three daily grades will be dropped. Note that being on time for class is important. For example, if a quiz is to be given from 9:10– 9:20 and a student arrives at 9:15, he will have 5 minutes to complete the quiz instead of 10. If she arrives at 9:20 he will not be allowed to take the quiz. Remember there are three drops on daily assignments.
