Math 19, Section Z1: Fundamentals of Calculus I Summer 2013 Syllabus and Course Information Class Meetings: TWR

9:00-11:30 AM, 223 Votey Instructor: Sam Schiavone Website: http://www.uvm.edu/~sschiavo/MathSite/samschiavone.html Email: Samuel.Schiavone@uvm.edu Oce: 106 Lord House (basement), 16 Colchester Ave Oce Hours: TWR 11:30 - 12:30 and by appointment Course Materials: Calculus with Applications by Lial, Greenwell, and Ritchey, 10th Edition. You can buy a hard copy of the textbook (ISBN-10: 0321760026), which comes packaged with MyMathLab and the e-text, or just MyMathLab and the e-text (ISBN-10: 032119991X). Each student must have his or her own access code for MyMathLab for homework. (required) A scientic or graphing calculator (recommended) Check the course MyMathLab page frequently for announcements and assignments! www.MyMathLab.com, Course ID: schiavone87732 Prerequisites: Math 9, 10, or suciently strong background in secondary school algebra and geometry. Course Description: Fundamentals of Calculus I is the rst course in a two-course sequence intended for students in business or the social sciences. Students majoring in mathematics or engineering should take the Math 21-22-121 sequence. In Math 19 we will investigate the underlying concepts of dierential calculus including trigonometry, covering Chapters 16 and 13 of the textbook. This will include an understanding of functions, limits, continuity, rates of change, derivatives, and applications of derivatives. The material is presented via mathematical modeling of real world situations. We emphasize understanding these new concepts graphically, numerically, verbally, and algebraically. Upon the successful completion of the course a student will understand rates of change, have stronger quantitative reasoning skills, will have enhanced his or her problem solving techniques, and will be prepared to take Math 20. Grading: Your grade in this course will be based on homework assignments, quizzes, midterm exams, and a nal exam as follows: Homework (15%): After each class I will post a homework assignment on MyMathLab. These assignments are due one week after the date they are posted. Quizzes (20%): There will be about 4 in-class quizzes. I will drop the lowest quiz score. Midterm Exams (40%): There will be two midterm exams which will each be worth 20% of your nal grade. Final Exam (25%): There will be a cumulative nal exam given in class on Thursday, June 27th.
