Fundamentals of Calculus I is the first course in our two-course applied calculus sequence. The follow-up course is Math 020 – Fundamentals of Calculus II. Fundamentals of Calculus I is an introduction to the calculus of functions of one variable. This will include an understanding of the concepts of limits, continuity, the definition of the derivative, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, techniques and applications of differentiation, basic integration including substitution, and assorted applications of integration. This basically covers chapters 2 – 5 of the textbook given below. Topics will be presented with a level of depth and rigor appropriate for students pursuing degrees in business, economics, social and life sciences. Please speak to the Department of Mathematics and Statistics if you are unsure if you are taking the correct calculus course.
Required Course Materials: Text (either e-text or hardbound text) and Online Homework Access Code You will need an access code for MyMathLab online homework, which includes access to the eBook version of the text. The access code can be purchased with or without a hardcover textbook; note that only the access code is required. Option #1: Minimum Requirement --- Choose this from the UVM Bookstore MyMathLab: Calculus for Business, Economics, Life and Social Sciences with ebook. ISBN 0134856791 • This is the stand alone Access Code for MyMathLab. If you would like a printed textbook in addition to the homework access code and ebook, choose the following bundle instead of the minimum requirements described above. Option #2: More than Minimum --- Choose this from the UVM Bookstore Calculus for Business, Economics, Life and Social Sciences with MyMathLab and ebook. ISBN 0134862635 • This includes a hardbound textbook and the Access Code for MyMathLab. Per University policy regarding work required for a three credit hour course, students should expect to spend a minimum of six hours outside of class time each week on course work.
Grades will be based on homework assignments (~ 3 per week), weekly quizzes, 2-3 midterm exams, and a final exam.
