Text: Calculus – Early Transcendentals, 4th ed.
Author: James Stewart
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.
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).
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:
Tests 1-4 400 points
Final* 100 points
*The grade from your final can be used to replace one of your in class test grades.
