COURSE OUTLINE MATH 1300.03 FALL 1999 

INSTRUCTOR: K. Q. Lan, Ross S514, tel. 7365250 ext 33956, email: kunquan@yorku.ca OFFICE HOURS: Mon 1:302:30; Wed, Fri 11:3012:20 or by appointment. TEXT: S. O. Kochman, Calculus: Concepts, Applications and Theory, available from the bookstore. Please inform me of any errors that you find in this text. MATH LAB: Assistance with mathematical questions on the course or the homework is available at the "Mathematics and Statistics Laboratory", room S525 Ross, beginning on Monday, September 13. The hours will be announced in class. HELP SESSIONS: An optional help session will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 in Stedman Lecture Hall C, Monday through Thursday afternoons, beginning on Monday, September 13. GAUSS LAB: The Gauss Lab in room S110 Ross will be accessible to Math 1300 students at times which will be announced in class. A lab assistant will be present to assist you in using MAPLE to solve calculus problems. This may be helpful to those students who feel comfortable using computer software. Use of this lab is optional. WEB PAGE: There is a web page for this course which contains the course outline, homework problems, course schedule as well as solutions to quizzes and tests. Announcements made in class will be posted there and will not repeated in class. The address of this web page is: http://www.math.yorku.ca/Who/Guests/Lan /info.html SYLLABUS: We will study the following sections: Chapter 1: sections 16; \ Chapter 2: sections 110,12; \ Chapter 3: sections 13. Note that we will not cover all the sections of each chapter. Calculus is the study of functions. Differential calculus studies the tangent lines to their graphs while integral calculus studies the areas under their graphs. Limits are used to define the derivative and integral. We will develop formulas for computing derivatives. Consequences of the Mean Value Theorem will be used to find local extrema and to sketch curves. Applications of the derivative will be made by interpreting it as a rate of change. The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus will be used to evaluate integrals, and integrals will be applied to compute areas. Other applications of integrals will be given in Math 1310. A more detailed list of topics is contained in the table of contents of the text. HOMEWORK: You are expected to do of the assigned homework. There will be a weekly quiz each Friday at 1:00 p.m. with one problem analogous to one of the assigned homework problems. Each marked quizz will be available for pickup at the Math Lab the following Monday. EXAMS: There will be three inclass exams and a 3 hour final exam. MARKS: The final exam will count as 35% of your mark, each inclass exam will count as 15% of your mark and the quizzes will count as 20% of your mark. MISSED EXAMS: There will be no makeup exams for missed quizzes or missed inclass exams. Upon presentation of documentation of a valid excuse the corresponding percentage of the final mark will be added to the final exam. With no presentation of such documentation a grade of zero will be entered for the missed quiz or exam. If you miss the final exam then it is your responsibility to complete the required paperwork for deferred standing during the first week of January. A makeup final exam for students with deferred standing will be given on the Monday of Reading Week. Any student who receives deferred standing after that date will have to write the final exam with the students of a later course such as the Winter Math 1300 final exam given in April. IMPORTANT DATES: Drop deadline: November 5.
