WEB PAGE: The Mathematics Department has a web page for Math

** Course Description. Credit 4. This course will cover
vectors in two dimensions, differentiation and integration of
functions of one variable, and applications such as work,
velocity/acceleration, optimization (max/min), and curve sketching.
The course meets twice in lecture and twice per week in recitation.
One of your recitation meetings is designed to discuss questions over
homework or lecture. The other recitation meets in the computer
laboratory where the computer package Maple will be
introduced. The goal of the laboratory portion of the course is to
show how problems that are too difficult to solve hand, can be solved
with the help of the computer. The prerequisite for this
course is either Math 150 (precalculus) or a good high school
mathematics background that includes algebra II, analytic geometry
and trigonometry. **

** Texts. Calculus: Early
Vectors, preliminary edition, by Stewart et al, published by
Brooks/Cole. The computer laboratory will also use Calclabs with
Maple , also published by Brooks/Cole. **

Grading. Your grade will be determined by three exams, a
cumulative final exam, and a laboratory grade. The weights of each of
these are as follows. **

Exam I Exam II Exam III Final Exam Pop Quizzes Lab 15% 15% 20% 25% 8% 20% Date Date Date Date

Exams I, II and III are common exams (same exam is given for all sections of Math 151) and are administered in the evenings from 7:30-9:30pm. The increased weights of the third and final exams reflect the cumulative nature of the course. The Pop Quiz grade will be determined by quizzes in lecture; (the extra 3% serves to compensate for the possibility that some questions may have a theoretical bent). The laboratory grade will be determined by lab quizzes (40%) and computer assignments (60%).

** SCHEDULE ** A weekly course schedule
and suggested
homework list are available from the departmental Math 151
course web page.

**Make-ups** for exams and quizzes will only be given with
documented University-approved excuses (see University Regulations).

**Scholastic integrity is expected and is taken seriously. **
Any instance of scholastic dishonesty will be handled as consistent
with University Regulations.
