Unformatted text preview: MTH 271 Applied Calculus I Section 080L, Tues and Fri, 8:00 AM to 10:45AM Second Eight Weeks LR 106 Fall 2010 Instructor: Ms. Lara Langdon Office: Room LR 268A Office Hours : Tues. and Fri., 10:45 AM to 12:00 PM Mon. and Thurs., 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (Also by appointment) Phone: (703) 948-7793 or (571) 434-0998 (home) Email: [email protected] Required Text: Calculus with Applications, 9 th edition, by Lial, Greenwell, and Ritchey. Optional Material: Student Solutions Manual, by Lial, Greenwell, and Ritchey. Calculator: You will need a graphing calculator for this course. (Some preferred models are the TI-83, TI-83 Plus, TI-84, or TI-84 Plus.) Please bring your calculators to class every day. No sharing of calculators allowed during tests or quizzes. No using phones as calculators during tests or quizzes. Other Resources: In the Math Center (LR 204), as well as on reserve at the circulation desk in the library, you will find a set of CD-ROMs containing videos that accompany the textbook, section-by-section. In the Computer Lab (LW 230) you can access tutorial software to do additional drill and practice (with step-by-step instructions) for problems similar to those in the exercise sections of the text. The Math Center also has videotapes that give instructions on using the TI-83 graphing calculator. Course Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the student should be able to: 1. Evaluate limits. 2. Find derivatives of algebraic, exponential, and logarithmic functions. 3. Use derivatives to find equations of tangent lines, to sketch curves, and to solve maximum and minimum problems. 4. Find antiderivatives (indefinite integrals) of algebraic and exponential functions. 5. Evaluate definite integrals. 6. Use a graphing device as an aid in problem solving....
