INSTRUCTOR: K. Q. Lan, Ross S514, tel. 736-5250 ext 33956,

e-mail: kunquan@yorku.ca

OFFICE HOURS: Mon 1:30-2:30; Wed, Fri 11:30-12:20 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:

SYLLABUS: We will study the following sections: Chapter 1: sections 1-6; \

Chapter 2: sections 1-10,12; \ Chapter 3: sections 1-3. 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 in-class exams and a 3 hour final exam.

MARKS: The final exam will count as 35% of your mark, each in-class exam

will count as 15% of your mark and the quizzes will count as 20% of your

mark.

MISSED EXAMS: There will be no make-up exams for missed quizzes or

missed in-class 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 make-up 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.
