Text:

Calculus is a formal set of notation, definitions and tools that create a language useful for the modeling of real-world phenomena and the subsequent analysis of that phenomena. The primary technical topics covered are limits, continuity, derivatives, rates of change, maximum and minimum values, finding roots, optimization and integration.

Homework: Homework will be managed through the online WebAssign system, which requires the access card that comes with the textbook. No homework grades will be dropped. Late homework is not accepted without receiving my permission on or before the due date, which will require a reasonable explanation as to why the homework cannot be completed on time.Quizzes: See the schedule below. The lowest two quiz grades will be dropped.

Calculators: The use of calculators will not be permitted on exams or quizzes.
