Calculus: An Applied Approach, 5th Ed., Larson and Edwards
A graphing calculator is required for this class. I will be demonstrating with the TI-89. I will do my best to assist with other models, but I promise
MAT 116 is a continuation of MAT 115. Topics
include: antidifferentiation, calculus for trigonometric, exponential and
logarithmic functions, and applications. In
this quarter we will delve into the other branch of Calculus, Integration.
Along the way we will see the links between differentiation and
integration, as well as develop rules for new classes of functions.
A grade of C or better in Math 115 or Math 105 or equivalent.
Successful Students Will:
Exhibit a proficiency in the topics covered in this
Engage in logical and critical thinking;
Read technical information; and
Demonstrate the solution to problems by translating
written language into mathematical statements, interpreting information,
sketching relevant diagrams, analyzing given information, formulating
appropriate math statements, and checking and verifying results.
Your final letter grade will be based on the usual grading scale:
A 90-100%, B
80-89%, C 70-79%, D 60-69%, F 0-59%
following items will make up the course grade:
Homework will be due the class period after it is assigned.
Homework not turned in at this time will be considered late. You may turn
in homework up to one week after it is assigned for half credit.
If all homework is turned in, and no more than two are late, the lowest
regular exam score will be dropped.
There will be approximately 5 announced quizzes given over the quarter.
These quizzes will be designed to help prepare you for the exams, and
quiz problems will be taken directly from the homework assignments. A missed
quiz may be made up with a penalty of 10% per day.
Students are to bring a calculator, pencil, and blank scratch paper to
each exam. If you cannot make it to
an exam (final not included), you may take it up to 2 school days prior to the
scheduled date. Otherwise, the exam may be made up after the scheduled date
with a penalty of 10% per day.
Registration Information: You
must register for this class at the Office of Admissions and Records.
You may drop the class with no penalty or mark on your record on or
before January 30. After January
30, you may drop the class and receive a grade of W until March 5.
After March 5, if you are still enrolled, you will receive a grade of A,
B, C, D, F or I.
to Succeed in a Math Class: I am often asked how to
successfully pass a math class, and here is my advice:
I) Come to
every class session. Be prepared,
and plan on participating.
II) Do your
homework. Remember that what I
assign is what I consider a bare minimum. If
you need more practice, do it. Donít
make me be a homework enforcer.
the book. You paid good money for
it, so you might as well use it.
IV) Make use
of available tutors and my office hours. You
will find tutors who know the subject matter in this course at the GMC.
V) Do math
every day. Math is just like
everything else: if you donít practice, you become rusty.
Disabled Students: It is important that students
who are identified as being learning disabled speak to me about their special
needs. I am more than willing to
grant you reasonable accommodations.
Dishonesty: Academic dishonesty of any form will not be tolerated.
Students caught cheating on exams or quizzes will receive a score of zero
on the assignment for the first offense and a course grade of F for the second
offense. Students my work together
on homework assignments (and, in fact, are encouraged to) as long as all
students understand the material covered.
following is a tentative schedule. If
things change (you and I both know they will), I will let you know.
Derivatives of Exponential Functions
Logarithmic Functions and their Derivatives
Exponential Growth and Decay
Antiderivatives and the General Power Rule
Exponential and Logarithmic Integrals
Fundamental Theorem of Calculus
Areas and Integrals as Sums
Volumes of Solids
Integration by Substitution
Integration by Parts
Angles and Trig. Functions
Graphs of Trig. Functions
Derivatives and Integrals of Trig. Functions
