We shall cover most of Chapters One to Five, and part of Chapter Six in the text. We aim to introduce concepts and techniques of calculus: functions, limits, differentiation and integration. It is hoped that by the end of this course, students will have learned some useful tools in calculus and will be able to apply such tools to tackle problems, most of which are related to business applications. “This course is part of the University of South Florida’s Foundations of Knowledge and Learning (FKL) Core Curriculum. It is certified for Mathematics and Quantitative Reasoning and will meet the following four dimensions: Critical Thinking, Inquiry-based Learning, Scientific Processes, and Quantitative Literacy. Students enrolled in this course will be expected to participate in the USF General Education assessment effort. This might involve answering questions that measure quantitative reasoning skills (but are not directly related to the course), responding to surveys, or participating in other measurements designed to assess the FKL Core Curriculum learning outcomes.” Required Prerequisites: C (2.0) or better in MAC 1105, or C (2.0) or better in MAC 1140, or C (2.0) or better in MAC 1147, or SAT Math score of 590 or better, or ACT Math score of 26 or better, or College-Level Math CPT score of 78 or better. Grades: Tests: best 2 out of 3 tests, 20% each WebAssign homework: 10% Best 6 of (about) 8 quizzes from help sessions: 15% Peer-leading sessions: 5% Final exam: 30% • Each test is out of 50, and the final is out of 100. • WebAssign homeworks are mandatory. A student with an overall (final) score at least 50% in WebAssign will get a 20% boost. That is, it is ok to miss some homework problems (and there will be many homework problems)....
