This is the first course in a two-course, terminal calculus sequence. It is designed to introduce students to the beauty and power of calculus. Topics include functions, limits, the derivative, tangent lines, curve sketching, exponential and logarithmic functions and the calculus of several variables. Applications to the life sciences are emphasized.

Suggested Homework
**

The suggested homework is very useful and important for the tests and the final exam.

15 minutes quizzes with 3 simple problems in every Tue class (first quizee on Sep 4th.)

Final quizze grade = exact average quizze grade / 80% = exact average quizze grade * 1.25
(no more than full grade)

Time: 10:00AM-11:00AM and 2:00PM-3:30PM on Tues and Thurs, or by appointment.

Location: 215 Carnegie Building, Room 207

Your semester average will be based on your performance on the final exam, the three hour exams, homework, quizzes, and exam corrections. These components will be weighted as follows:

**
**

- Final Exam: 20%
- 3 Hour Tests: 20% each
- Quizzes: 10%
- Homework: 10%
- Exam Corrections: Additional Homework (add 5% to the final grade of your homework, each)

An essential part of success in a mathematics course is to learn from one's mistakes. Part of your grade will be to submit correct solutions to problems that you missed on each exam. An exam score of at least 90 exempts you from making corrections on that particular exam. Corrections are to be submitted to your instructor within one week after the exams are returned in class. Late corrections will not be accepted.
