Unformatted text preview: MAC 2311 (Section 17): Calculus with Analytic Geometry I (Monday 5:15 pm - 6:05 pm, Tuesday and Thursday: 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm, Room: 106 LOV) INSTRUCTOR and OFFICE HOURS : Instructor : Hoa Nguyen ([email protected]) Office : 461C, 4th floor of DIRAC library, School of Computational Science. Office Hours : Monday: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm, Tuesday: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm, Thursday: 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm. CLASS INFORMATION : Text : Calculus (Early Transcendentals) (Sixth Edition), by James Stewart Class Web-site (On-line lecture notes, homework assignments, quizzes): http://people.scs.fsu.edu/ ∼ nguyen/MAC2311 17.html Blackboard Site (Class announcements, grades, office hours, links): http://campus.fsu.edu Tentative Course Schedule (Dates of lectures, tests and final exam): http://people.scs.fsu.edu/ ∼ nguyen/MAC2311 17/schedule.pdf Blogging Site (Class discussion): http://learncalc1.blogspot.com/ Calculator Policy : No calculators are allowed on quizzes and tests. For homework and other assign- ments, a simple calculator is enough. Remember that we are learning thought processes, not how to use sophisticated calculators. Please turn off cell-phones when in class. ELIGIBILITY : You must have the course prerequisites listed below and must never have completed with a grade of C- or better any course for which MAC 2311 is a prerequisite. Students with prior credit in college calculus may be required to reduce credit for MAC 2311 accordingly. It is the students responsibility to check and prove eligibility. PREREQUISITES : You must have passed MAC 1140 (Precalculus) and MAC 1114 (Trigonometry) with a grade of C- or better in each or have appropriate transfer credit. Placement in AMP Group 1 or 1H (or 2 if you are also taking trigonometry) is also considered to satisfy the prerequisite. AMP Group 3A with prior Precalculus or AMP Group 3B with prior college trigonometry will also work. COURSE OBJECTIVES : Calculus was developed independently by the Englishman Sir Isaac Newton and the German Gottfried Leibniz to describe quantities in motion. It is a core part of mathematics and has many applications in physics, biology, chemistry, economics and other sciences. Learning Calculus I will give students a good understanding of: • 1. limits and continuity for functions of a single variable; • 2. differentiation of elementary functions and how to solve related problems; • 3. the Riemann Integral and its applications....
