**Course Description:** The first of a three-course
sequence in calculus. Limits, applications of derivatives to problems in
geometry and the sciences (physical and behavioral). Problems which lead to
antiderivatives.

**Topics:** Limits, Continuity, Tangents and Velocity as Rates of Change,
Differentiation Rules (including the Power Rule, Product Rule, Quotient Rule,
and Chain Rule), Differentiation of Trigonometric Functions, Implicit
Differentiation, Higher Derivatives, Derivatives of Logarithmic Functions,
Hyperbolic Functions, Related Rate Problems, Maximum-Minimum Problems, The Mean
Value Theorem, L'Hospital's Rule and Indeterminate Forms, Curve Sketching,
Newton's Method, Antiderivatives, Definite Integrals, the Fundamental Theorem
of Calculus, and Integration by Substitution

**Learning Outcomes:**

- The
student will be able to compute limits
(see L1)
- The
student will be able to compute derivatives of polynomial, rational,
exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions (see L1)
- The
student will be able to apply calculus to related rate, maximum-minimum,
and curve sketching problems (see L1)
- The
student will understand the definition of the indefinite and definite
integral (see L1)
- The
student will understand and be able to apply the Fundamental Theorem of
Calculus (see L1)
- The
student will be able to compute definite integrals using the techniques of
integration by inspection and integration by substitution (see L1).

TEXT:
CALCULUS Early Transcendentals, Stewart

TESTS: There will be exams on **Tuesday, January 28, Tuesday, February 25** , **Tuesday, April 1** and **Tuesday,
April 22**. Each will count 100
points towards your final grade.

FINAL: The final is **Friday, May 2 at 8:00-10:00**.
It counts 200 points towards your final grade and will be comprehensive.

HOMEWORK: Homework will be assigned each class and
collected the following class. Each
assignment is worth 2 points. You will
lose 1 point for each day it is late.
You may count a maximum of 100 points towards your final grade.

CLASS: You are expected to attend class on a
regular basis. Occasionally, in class,
you will be given time to work on problems.
During these times, you can work with others or by yourself but you must
be working on the problems assigned and not work from other classes, homework
or talking!! Occasionally, points will
be awarded for doing work on the board based on these problems. These points will count towards you homework
score. If you do not fully participate,
you will have one homework assignment deducted from your homework score.

CALCULATORS: You are required to have a graphing
calculator. I will be using a

TI-83,
but TI-85 and TI-86 are also acceptable.
You __cannot__ have a calculator with a CAS on it such as the TI-89
or TI-92. If you are unsure, ask me
BEFORE you show up to a test with a calculator that I will not allow!!

GRADES: Your grade will be determined based on the
following formula

TEST 400
points

FINAL 200 points

HOMEWORK 100 points

TOTAL 700 points

__POINTS__ __GRADE__

630-700 A

560-629 B

490-559 C

420-489 D

0-419 F

There
will be no curve or extra credit assignments, so don’t ask!

If
you ever have any questions or suggestions, feel free to come by my office at
any time. I will definitely be there
during my office hours, you can just stop by.
You can also stop by or call to see if I am there at other times.
