Text: Briggs and Cochran Calculus: Early Transcendentals 1st Edition, Pearson, 2010 ISBN: 978-0321570567 Content: Chapters 1 to 5 Calculator: Graphing calculator can be used as a supplement. Websites: Sample Tests: http://www.ohlone.edu/instr/math/101atests Calculator Help: http://www2.ohlone.edu/people2/joconnell/ti Catalog Description: This course includes a review of functions and graphs; elements of analytic geometry, limits, continuity, differentiation of algebraic, trigonometric, logarithmic, exponential, and inverse trigonometric functions, applications of the derivative, and introduction to integration and some applications of the definite integral. Counselor Information: MATH 101A is the beginning course of the calculus sequence, applicable to a variety of majors (most especially mathematics, engineering, and the sciences). It is important that students be well prepared for this course by successfully completing a precalculus course (such as MATH 188 here at Ohlone) or the equivalent. Student Learning Outcomes The student will: 1. Manipulate and evaluate mathematical expressions involving limits and derivatives at the intermediate level. 2. Apply differential calculus to problems involving related rates and optimization at the intermediate level. 3. Use the methods of calculus to analyze the qualitative behavior of graphs of twodimensional functions at the mastery level. 4. Manipulate and evaluate mathematical expressions involving integration at the beginning level. 5. Use technology to analyze functions found in differential calculus at the intermediate level. Grading: A 100 % - 90% B 89.9% - 80% C 79.9% - 65% Assignments - 15% Tests - 55% Final - 30% D 64.9% - 55% Homework: The assigned homework is the minimum work that should be done every day to reinforce the concepts learnt. Homework will not be collected. Assignments: Should be turned in on the date printed on the assignment. It should be done neatly with appropriate work shown. Answers only will not be accepted. Students can submit one day late with no points deducted. Assignments submitted later than that will not be accepted. Two lowest scores will be dropped. Tests/ Finals: There will be five chapter tests during the semester. One make-up test may be given along with the finals depending on the reason for missing a test. The final exam will cover all the material discussed during the semester.
