Course Objectives

  1. To gain a mastery of the advanced techniques and concepts in the calculus of a single variable and the application of these the techniques to real world problems.
  2. To develop problem solving skills.
  3. Instruction will also emphasize analytical, graphical, and numerical approaches using technology. Reasonable proficiency with the use of technology will be expected.


  1. Attendance is mandatory, and you will be responsible for all material covered in class. We reserve the right to drop anyone from the course who has more than four unexcused absences. Roll will be taken until we know all the students.
  2. The grade will be based on exams, projects, homework, and class participation. The final exam will count 20%. There will be three exams and three projects. Each exam and project will be worth 10%. The grade on the final can be used to replace the lowest of grade on the exams or projects. There will be a collection of web-based, graded homework exercises, and the entire collection will be worth 10%. Each section of the textbook has a series of reflections. Answers to these reflections will be turned in online. More complex homework problems will be presented on the board in class. The reflections, the homework presentations, and general class participation will be worth 10%.
