Class meets MWF 17:30-18:40 in WH A 117.

Instructor:  Serban Raianu

Office: NSM A-123; Office phone number: (310) 243- 3139

Course Description: MAT 191, Calculus I,  covers Chapters 2-6 from the textbook: Differential and integral calculus of one variable: limits, continuity, derivatives and application of derivatives,  integrals, Fundamental Theorem of Calculus,  basic techniques of integration and application of integrals.

Text: James Stewart, Calculus, 5th edition, Brooks/Cole, 2003.

Objectives: After completing MAT 191 the student should be able to:

• Understand the four basic concepts of one-variable calculus; the limit, the concept of continuity, the derivative and the integral of a function of one variable
• Use the rules of differentiation to compute derivatives of algebraic and trigonometric functions
• Use derivatives to solve problems involving rates of change, tangent lines, velocity (speed), acceleration, optimization, and related rates.
• Investigate the graph of a function with the aid of its first and second derivatives: asymptotes,  continuity, tangency,  monotonicity,  concavity,  extrema,  inflection points, etc.
• Understand the meanings of indefinite integral and the definite integral of a function of one variable, and their relationship to the derivative of a function via the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus
• Use rules of integration including the Substitution Rule to evaluate indefinite and definite integrals

Prerequisites: MAT 153 or equivalent with a grade of "C" or better.

Grades: Grades will be based on three in‑class 70-minutes examinations (60% total), a comprehensive final examination (25%), and quizzes, homework, attendance and other assignments (15%) for the remainder.

Each of the three 70-minutes exams will be graded  on a 100 scale, then the sum of the scores is divided by 5 and denoted by E.

Homework will be collected three times, on the days of the three exams, and each homework is worth 5 points. No late homework will be accepted. The average of all homework scores is denoted by H.

5 to 10 minutes quizzes will be given in principle every Friday, with the exception of the review and exam days, and will be graded on a scale from 1 to 5. The average of the quizzes scores is denoted by Q.

There are also 5 points awarded for attendance and class participation. This portion of the grade is denoted by A.

The final exam will be graded out of a maximum possible 200, then the score is divided by 8 and denoted by F.

To determine your final grade,  compute E+H+Q+A+F. The maximum is 100, and the grade will be given by the rule:

A: 93‑100;      A‑: 90‑92;      B+: 87‑89;      B: 83‑86;   B‑: 80‑82

C+: 77‑79;      C: 73‑76;        C‑: 70‑72;      D: 60‑69;   F: Less than 60.

WebWorK:  There will be three WebWork assignments. You should go to my web site, follow the link, then log in using as user name your CSUDH email user name (i.e. first initial followed by last name), and the last 5 digits of your ID as password (change the password after the first log in). Each of the three assignments are due before 11pm of the day before each of the three exams. Completing an assignment will bring you 10 bonus points toward the grade of the following exam (this is 2 extra points toward your final grade).

Makeups: No makeup examinations or quizzes will be given. If you must miss an examination for a legitimate reason, discuss this, in advance, with me, and I may then substitute the relevant score from your final examination for the missing grade.

Students with Disabilities: Students who need special consideration because of any sort of disability are urged to see me as soon as possible.

Academic Integrity: The mathematics department does not tolerate cheating. Students who have questions or concerns about academic integrity should ask their professors or the counselors in the Student Development Office, or refer to the University Catalog for more information. (Look in the index under "academic integrity".)

Technology: Symbolic calculators, such as TI-89 or TI-92 are not acceptable for this course.
