**Office: **Robinson Hall, Mathematics
Department Room 229E

**Phone:** 256-4500 ext
3888. **E-mail:** hassen@rowan.edu

**Office Hours:** MTR 9:25am - 10:00am.

**Prerequisites**: Math
01122 (Precalculus ) or 60 on the CLM exam

**Course Description**:
This course begins with a discussion of functions, the limit concept and
continuity. The concept of a derivative is introduced and the student
learns to differentiate algebraic functions, exponential, functions,
logarithmic and trigonometric functions. Differentiation is applied to analysis
of functions, extreme problems and to problems in related rates. The
integral as the unit of a sum is linked to the antiderivative
by the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and used to find areas. A graphing
calculator is required for this course, and so is the use of computer software,
such as Mathematica. Students are expected to have completed an
equivalent of (Math 01.122) Precalculus.

**OBJECTIVES:** Students will
demonstrate the ability to: (i) compute limits; (ii)
differentiate and integrate polynomial, rational, algebraic, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions; (iii) use
differentiation to solve extreme and related rate problems, and (iv) use integration
to find areas and volumes.

**Content**:
The following sections from the text will be covered in this course.

CHAPTER 1 ** Precalculus Review**

All Sections will be reviewed with details left to the students

CHAPTER 2 **

Sections 2.1 to 2.8 will be covered

CHAPTER 3
**Differentiation**

Sections 3.1 to 3.11 will be covered

Applications of the Derivative **

Sections 4.1 to 4.9 will be covered

CHAPTER 5 ** The Integral**

Sections 5.1 to 5.6 will be covered

CHAPTER 6 **
Applications of the Integral**

Section 6.1 will be covered

**Grading Policy**: Your final grades will be determined
by your results on four tests, *Mathematica *and homework assignments, and
class participation. The dates for each test will be announced in class two
weeks before the test date. Thus attendance will be very important. The
materials covered in the four tests will be as follows:

**Test 1** (**20%**
of the total grade) Chapters 1 and 2

**Test
2 **(**20%** of the
total grade) Chapter 3

**Test
3 **(**20%** of the
total grade) Chapter 4

**Test 4 **(**20%**
of the total grade) Chapters 5 and 6

** **

**10%** of your grade will be from homework
assignments as well as class participation and **10%** will be from *Mathematica
projects. *(Here is project 1)

The letter grade assignment will be as follows:

*A(**A-)
= 90 to 100 B(-,+) = 80 to 89 C(-,+) = 67 to
79 D(-,+) = 55 to 66 F = 0 to 54*

**Attendance Policy:** Attendance is mandatory. An attendance sheet will
be passed around at the beginning of each class period. Please write your
signature next to your printed name on the list. If you are absent/tardy
from a class, you must submit a note requesting that the absence/tardiness be
excused by the next class meeting. Each student is allowed a total of three
unexcused absences/**tardiness** (combined). If you miss a class, it is your
responsibility to study the section(s) covered and do the homework.

If you are absent the day of a regularly scheduled test, a grade of zero is
automatically recorded as your test score. You will be permitted to make up
this zero only when you can confirm that you were absent for reasons beyond
your control. In such cases, you must telephone 256-4500 extension 3888
(or send me an e-mail) and leave a message including your name and telephone number,
the reason for your absence and the date you anticipate returning. *Students
who fail to leave the above information will be assigned the grade of zero for
that test.*

**Academic Honesty:** Cheating on a test or assignment
seriously undermines the integrity of the academic system and will not be
tolerated. If I determine that a student has cheated, I will assign the
grade of F for this course and send a letter to this effect to his
advisor. Although a student is not cheating, he or she is expected to refrain
from actions that could be suspicious. Using common sense on your part
should avoid unnecessary embarrassment.

**Classroom rules:** · Students will abide by
Rowan's student code of conduct and policy on academic honesty (p. 19 and p. 28
of Rowan 1999-2000 undergraduate catalog, respectively). Improper
behavior will not be tolerated. Students are not permitted to leave the
classroom during class period except for emergencies or unless prior
arrangements have been made with the instructor. Please use the restrooms
before class begins.

**Students with Disabilities and Special Needs:** Please
speak with me as early in the semester as possible so that we can make
appropriate accommodations for you. If necessary, you can also contact the
Office of Special Services.

**Questions in Class: **The best time to ask questions is during class. Many
times students fear that their questions will seem foolish, while in fact, many
others also have the same question. I urge you to ask your questions
during class. If you have questions that were not answered in class, you may
stop by my office during my office hours.
