This course is an introduction to
We will review antiderivatives and then do the
Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. We will use this
theorem to compute areas and volumes. A number of
techniques to compute difficult antiderivatives will
be discussed. We will conclude with an introduction to
differential equations. If you want a good grade in
this class, you should expect to spend at least 12
hours a week on homework. Worksheets, schedules and old exams can be found on the
125 course page.
Grades will be based on total points
earned. There are 300
possible points in the course. Homework is worth 30 points and the
worksheets are worth 20.
There will be two midterms which are worth 75 points each and the
final is worth 100.
assigned on Webassign. You are responsible for all the problems assigned (ie:
any of it
could appear on the exams).
No late homework will be accepted.
There will be 2 midterm exams. They
will be on Thursday October 18 and Thursday November 15.
They are 80 minutes

Rules for taking exams
You are allowed to use one handwritten 8.5 by 11
sheet (both sides) of notes. Ti-30x IIS calculators are the only calculators allowed for
exams. There are no make-up exams. If you have a compelling
well-documented reason for missing a test, speak
to the professor about it.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays you will meet with a
Teaching Assistant in a smaller group. This gives you
a chance to get more help with your homework.
Sometimes there will be a worksheet that you can work
on while the TA circulates and answers questions. You will hand
in homework on Tuesdays to your TA and they will
return it to you, probably a week later. On Thursdays your
section will be 80 minutes long. You will either work on a worksheet or
take a midterm on Thursdays.
