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