The Textbook

The Syllabus

The syllabus follows the textbook.
I expect to cover chapter 2 on limits and derivatives (except 2.4), chapter 3 on differentiation rules (except 3.10, 3.11), chapter 4 on applications of differentiation (only sections 4.1, 4.3, 4.5, 4.7), chapter 11 on infinite sequences and series (only sections 11.1, 11.2) and chapter 12 on vectors and the geometry of space (except 12.5).
The central source for the course is the textbook. Each lecture I will assign exercises from the textbook which you should do by the next lecture.
