Math 2253 - FALL 2007 Secrions 001 and 002 Calculus I Instructor: Nicolae R. Pascu Office: D151, Phone: (678) 915-4989 E-mail:  n    [email protected]     Web:  http://www2.spsu.edu/math/Npascu/index.html TEXTBOOK : Thomas' Calculus, Media Upgrade 11/e by George Thomas , Joel Hass , Maurice Weir and Frank Giordano (Pearson Addison-Wesley). MEETING TIMES/LOCATION/Course ID: C alculus I - 8393 MATH 2253-001 (8 - 8:50a MTRF) / D205 Course ID: pascu32877 C alculus I – 8403 MATH 2253-002 (9 - 9:50a MTRF) / D219 Course ID: pascu44313 COURSE DESCRIPTION: This is a first course in calculus. Topics include limits, derivatives and integrals of algebraic and trigonometric functions; also, tangent lines, instantaneous rates of change, related rates, maxima, minima, the area between curves, volumes, centers of mass and moments of inertia, and the work done by varying forces. GOALS: Upon completing this course students should be able to: 1. Find limits of functions and determine continuity of functions. 2. Find derivatives of algebraic and some trigonometric functions, and use derivatives to solve applied problems. 3. Find integrals of some algebraic and trigonometric functions, and use integrals to solve applied problems OFFICE HOURS : MRF 9:50-11:00, T 9:50-11:10. PREREQUISITE : A grade of C or higher in MATH 1113 or placement by the Mathematics Assessment Test. CLASS ATTENDANCE : I strongly suggest the attendance to class. If you miss a class, it is your responsibility to find out what has been taught in that lesson and to learn this material. Active participation is necessary if you wish to do well in this course. HOMEWORK : We will use MyMathLab to complete the HW assignments (please read the registration instructions on the attached paper). For each section, there will be a minimum number of problems, which I strongly suggest to be done by the next class meeting. Homework

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
