Section Description

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, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus; techniques and applications of differentiation; basic integration, including integration by substitution; and applications of integration including area and volume. Topics will be presented with a level of depth and rigor appropriate for students pursuing degrees in technical fields such as mathematics, statistics, engineering, or the physical sciences. The computer algebra system Mathematica will be used throughout the course. A strong background in algebra and precalculus, including trigonometry, is a necessary pre-requisite for the course. Students with insufficient preparation in secondary school mathematics should take MATH 1034 prior to enrolling in MATH 1234.

Section Expectation

Students should expect to spend 8-10 hours a week on coursework outside of class. Approximately once per week we will spend class time using Mathematica. Mathematica is available free of charge to students in the class. A laptop is required on the days we are using Mathematica. The purchase of an access code for the online homework system is required. Details will be provided at the start of the semester.

Evaluation

Grades will be based on WebAssign homework, Mathematica labs, quizzes, exams, and a cumulative final exam.
