Text: Varberg, Purcell and Rigdon, Calculus.
The main goal of this course is to provide students with an
understanding of both the theory and the applications of calculus.
This course is designed to provide students in science and engineering
with the fundamentals of calculus and also to provide experience with
how it is used to solve problems. Students will also gain experience
in working in teams on the laboratories that are an
important part of this course. Students will also become familiar
with software tools available on the workstations in the laboratory,
particularly the Computer Algebra System, Maple.
Lab reports will be due the same day the lab is introduced. Attendance at the lab sessions is required. No excuses will be accepted without prior arrangement with me. Labs will go up on the web on the Tuesday before the lab period.
