TEXT:
Calculus of a single variable
2nd ed., by E. Swokowski, M. Olinic and D. Pence
PWS Publishing Company, Boston.

Description:

This course is a first course in Calculus. We will discuss functions and their properties. The course is designed to have a compuer lab section in which the topics covered in the lectures will be further explored with the help of the Maple program. In order to facilitate the learning of Maple and in order that you would have more time to practice and do your computer labs, I require you to OBTAIN A COMPUTER ACCOUNT ON THE VAX MACHINE.

There will be four in--class exams. I will count the best three towards your final grade. Your grade for the course will be the sum of all these exams plus the grade from your labs. There will be no cummulative final exam.

It is your responsibility to be aware of the dates of the exams and the content and due date of assignments. If you miss a class, it is your responsibility to be aware of the topics discussed during that class, the assigned homework and the and the possibly given assignment. There is no reason to miss an exam other than getting sick (bring note from doctor), being on a team that has a game at the same time an exam is given (bring a note from your coach), or a death or serious illness in your family. In the event you can not attend an exam, that will count as your worst exam out of the other 3. There will be NO MAKE UP exams.

Exam 1: Sep 20 Sections: A,B,C,D, 1.1-1.5, 2.1-2.2
