Summer 2018 Courses

All courses are taught from June 11 to August 3, 2018.

Add/Drop dates follow Summer Programs deadlines.

Calculus I (110.108) Syllabus

This is a two course sequence in the differential and integral calculus of functions of one independent variable. Topics include the basic analytic geometry of graphs of functions, and their limits, integrals and derivatives, including the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Also, some applications of the integral, like arc length and volumes of solids with rotational symmetry, are discussed. Applications to the physical sciences and engineering will be a focus of this course, as this sequence of courses is designed to meet the needs of students in these disciplines. 4 credits

This course is part of a two course sequence and precedes AS.110.109 Calculus II (Physical Sciences and Engineering). Students planning to take this course must demonstrate a proficiency in pre-calculus, either through the successful completion of a prior course in pre-calculus (such as AS.110.105) or by achieving an adequate score in the Placement Exam I offered by the Mathematics Department. This sequence of courses is considered foundational to all higher-level courses in mathematics. This sequence satisfies a core requirement of two semesters of single variable calculus for both the major and minor in mathematics.
