– Early Transcendentals**,** 4^{th}
ed.

Author: James

Description: This is the first of a three-course sequence in
calculus for students majoring in science, engineering, and mathematics.

Topics: Limits, continuity, the derivative and
it’s applications in problems from science and engineering, an introduction to
the indefinite integral and basic techniques of integration, an introduction to
the definite integral and the basic techniques in evaluating them, and
application of the definite integral to solving areas between curves.

Learning
Objectives:

1.
The
student will understand the definition of a limit and will be able to give the
geometric significance of limits (L1).

2.
The
student will be able to compute limits (L1).

3.
The
student will understand the definition of a derivative and be able to give the
geometric significance of the derivative (L1).

4.
The
student will be able to compute derivatives of polynomial, rational,
exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions (L1).

5.
The
student will be able to apply differential calculus to related rate, optimization,
and curve sketching problems (L1).

6.
The
student will understand the definition of the indefinite and definite integral
and will be able to give the geometric significance of the definite integral (L1).

7.
The
student will understand and be able to apply the Fundamental Theorem of
Calculus (L1).

8.
The
student will be able to compute both definite and indefinite integrals using
the basic techniques and by the method of substitution (L1).

Assessment:

4
Tests
during class periods. (These will be
given on either a Wednesday or a Thursday class period and will be for 75
minutes.)

1
Comprehensive
Final. (This will be given December 11,
2002 from 2pm to 4pm in Boyd 301.)

Your
course grade is based on these 3 parts as follows:
