Text and Calculator: The text is Calculus of a single variable: early transcendental functions by Larson and Edwards, (Brooks/Cole, 2012). A TI-83 or TI-84 calculator is recommended. Calculators which perform symbolic algebraic simplification (such as the TI-89 or TI-92) are not allowed.
Course Goals: In this course you will be learning about limits and continuity, differentiation with applications to graphing of functions and word problems, and enough integration (both the concept and the practice) to prepare you for Calculus II.
Grades: Grades will be based on Homework and Quizzes (10% each), three Exams (15% per exam) and the Final Exam (35%). I will regularly assign homework. Discussion with classmates is alright, but direct copying is not, including from online sources. There will be quizzes during many lectures with problems based on the homework. Usually the quizzes are announced in advance, but this is not guaranteed.

When all the coursework is complete, grades will be assigned on the following basis. Let P be the percentage of points scored. Then

P Grade
P at least 90 A
P at least 88, but less than 90 B/B+/A-/A, depending on strength of final
P at least 80, but less than 88 B
P at least 78, but less than 80 C/C+/B-/B, depending on strength of final
P at least 70, but less than 78 C
P at least 68, but less than 70 D/D+/C-/D, depending on strength of final
P less than 68 D or F
Attendance and make-up policy: University policy states that regular and punctual class attendance is essential and that no assigned work is excused due to absence, no matter what the cause. If you miss a quiz due to absence it will count as a zero, except in cases of excused absence (these require a note from Campus Life or documented participation in university activities). Makeup exams are possible for students with an excused absence, in which case the student must inform me before the exam.
Exams: There will be three exams during the semester and a final. Please bring your calculators. The tentative dates for these exams are given above, however they are subject to change. I will announce any changes to exam dates in class at least a week in advance.
Course Website: I will maintain this website for our course; it will contain homework assignments, solutions, and other useful information. The address is
