MATH 137 Calculus 1 Fall 2010 Course objective MATH 137 is intended to deepen your understanding of calculus that you began to learn in high school. We will treat the subject in greater depth, involving more care with deFnitions, more proofs of the results, more subtle examples, and a number of new topics. Textbook Calculus, Early Transcendentals, 6th Edition , by James Stewart, is the textbook for this course. The book, which can be bought at the campus bookstore, comes with a Students’ Solutions Manual for the odd numbered problems. This book will also be used for your second calculus course, MATH 138. Prerequisites You are supposed to be familiar with a variety of functions, including polynomial, rational, power, trigonometric, and exponential functions. You should know how to calculate some basic derivatives and interpret their geometric meaning. You need some skills at sketching the graphs of simple functions. As well, skill with algebraic manipulations and inequalities will help signiFcantly. You may want to review Appendix A–C of the textbook on your own if you have forgotten a lot of high school mathematics. UW-ACE The MATH 137 web page on UW-ACE will contain a wealth of information about our course. In particular, it will contain the weekly written assignments and (after you have submitted them) their solutions, course announcements, and other useful items about MATH 137.
