Fundamentals of Calculus I
is the ﬁrst course in a two-course sequenceintended for students in business or the social sciences. Students majoring in mathematics orengineering should take the Math 21-22-121 sequence. In Math 19 we will investigate the un-derlying concepts of diﬀerential calculus including trigonometry, covering Chapters 1–6 and 13 of the textbook. This will include an understanding of functions, limits, continuity, rates of change,derivatives, and applications of derivatives. The material is presented via mathematical modelingof real world situations. We emphasize understanding these new concepts graphically, numerically,verbally, and algebraically. Upon the successful completion of the course a student will understandrates of change, have stronger quantitative reasoning skills, will have enhanced his or her problemsolving techniques, and will be prepared to take Math 20.
: Your grade in this course will be based on homework assignments, quizzes, midtermexams, and a ﬁnal exam as follows:
Homework (15%): After each class I will post a homework assignment on MyMathLab. Theseassignments are due one week after the date they are posted.
Quizzes (20%): There will be about 4 in-class quizzes. I will drop the lowest quiz score.
Midterm Exams (40%): There will be two midterm exams which will each be worth 20% of your ﬁnal grade.
