LECTURE TIME: Mon , Wed, Fri 8:30---9:30 a.m. at CLH G.

OFFICE HOURS: Mon , Wed, Fri 10:00---11:00 a.m. or by appointment.

REQUIRED TEXT : S. O. Kochman, Calculus: Concepts, Applications and Theory, Part I, 2000 Edition, available as a course kit from the bookstore.

OPTIONAL AID: V. Mishkin, Student Manual for Math 1300, (should be) available from the bookstore, contains solutions to the Basic Exercises of the sections covered in Math 1300.

TOPICS TO BE COVERED : Limits, derivatives with applications, antiderivatives, fundamental theorem of calculus, beginnings of integral calculus. Other topics include continuity, the Mean Value Theorem, curve sketching, L'Hospital's Rule and maxima-minima.

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 Tuesday, February 27, weekdays 10:00---15:00.

WEB PAGE: There is a web page for this course which contains the course outline, homework Problems. 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 all of the assigned homework. There will be a weekly quiz each Friday at 9:00 a.m. with one problem analogous to one of the assigned homework problems. Each marked quiz will be available for pickup at the Math Lab the following Monday.

EXAMS: There will be seven quizzes, three in-class midterm exams and a 3 hour final exam. All quizzes or midterm exams will start from the second week.

Quizzes: 9:00 a.m. March 9, 16, 30, April 6 16, 27, May 4.

Midterm exams: 8:30 a.m. March 23, April 23, May 11.

Note that on each Monday, I will announce on which Section(s) the following Friday's quiz or midterm exam will be.

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.
