|Text: Calculus: Early Transcendental Functions, 6th edition by Larson and Edwards, (Cengage, 2015). I do not plan to use web assign for the home work, so you don't need to pay for the access code if you can find a copy without it.|
|Calculator: 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 will be based on Homework and Quizzes (10% each),
three Exams (15% per exam) and the Final Exam (35%).

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.
|Course Website: I will maintain this website for our course; it will contain homework assignments, solutions, and other useful information. The address is www.math.tcu.edu/math/faculty/Nollet/courses/calc1.html.|
