This course is an introduction to integral calculus. 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.

Homework is 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 long and will be given in section. You must bring a Photo ID to all exams. The final exam will take place from 1:30pm to 4:30pm on Saturday December 8. Note that this is not the time listed in the final exam schedule.

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 and 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.
