2014-2015 Course Schedule


General course overview and outline of expectations

The topics for this course include Limits, Derivatives, and Integrals (both Definite and Indefinite). We will explore tools and techniques for applying these concepts, such as the Derivatives of Products and Quotients, and the Chain Rule. We will also form connections with the physical world, both for understanding and also for application. We'll use calculators and computers where appropriate.

Calculus is a "contact sport", with new and different ways of thinking about the world. The number of possible problems you may encounter explodes - you can't possibly learn "a solution for each". Math becomes a game of strategy, as well as tactics. It takes practice to become fluent in strategic ways of thinking.

Other information.

Students should allow at least 6 hours a week for homework.
