COURSE OUTLINE FOR MATH 1310, SECTION Q

INSTRUCTOR: Y. Kazmerchuk, Ross N629, tel. 736-5250 ext 20195, e--mail: yorik@mathstat.yorku.ca

OFFICE HOURS: Tues, Thurs 2:30-3:00pm or by appointment.

REQUIRED TEXTS: S. O. Kochman, Single Variable Calculus: Concepts, Applications and Theory, and the Maple Manual, both published by Prentice Hall, 2002.
Please inform me of any errors that you find in these texts.
OPTIONAL AID: There is a Student Manual, written by Valerie Mishkin, available in the bookstore. It contains complete solutions for all the exercises of the sections of the text which are covered in Math 1310.

MATH LAB: Assistance with mathematical questions on the course or the homework is available at the Mathematics and Statistics Laboratory, room S525 Ross.
The hours will be announced in class.

WEB PAGE: There is a web page for this course which contains the course outline, homework problems, text errata, hints on homework problems, the tentative course schedule, information on the Maple Labs as well as solutions to current and old tests. Announcements made in class will be posted there and will not be repeated in class. The address of this web page is:

SYLLABUS: We will study the following sections:
Chapter 3: sections 4 to 7;
Chapter 4: sections 1 to 7, 9;
Chapter 5: sections 1 to 5, 7.
Note that we will not cover all the sections of each chapter.

Integral calculus is the study of computing areas. By the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, integration is the inverse operation of differentiation. We will cover the basic techniques of computing and estimating integrals. In addition, logarithm and exponential functions will be studied. Applications will be made to computing volume, distance, mass, work and solving simple differential equations. The second part of this course studies infinite series. In particular, power series representations of definite integrals will be used to approximate the values of these integrals. 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. Experience has shown that the only way to learn math is to do it - math is not a spectator sport! The amount you learn in this course and the grade you receive will be proportional to the amount of time you spend doing problems.

MAPLE LABS: You are required to complete six Maple assignments. These may be done in the Gauss Lab, S110 Ross. Each assignment has two parts which can be submitted by leaving a printed copy in a drop box. A sheet with detailed instructions will be distributed.
LATE LABS: Labs that are handed in late may be penalized at the rate of 1 mark (out of 10) per day.

EXAMS: There will be three in-class exams and a 3 hour final exam. Each in-class exam will include several short questions on Maple.

MARKS: The final exam will count as 37% of your mark, each of the three in-class exams will count as 15% of your mark and each of the six Maple labs will count as 3% of your mark.

MISSED EXAMS: There will be no make-up exams for 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 exam. If you miss the final exam then it is your responsibility to complete the required paperwork for deferred standing within one week of the exam. A make--up final exam for students with deferred standing will be given in June. 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 Fall Math 1310 final exam given in December.
