Title:                Calculus I

Credit: 4-0-4

Textbook:       Calculus (Early Transcendentals), by J. Stewart, 6th edition, Brooks/Cole, 2008.

Objectives:     To introduce the student to basic concepts and methods of Calculus. Topics include: Limits and continuity of functions of a single variable. Differentiability. Exponential, Logarithmic, Hyperbolic, trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions. Applications: Related rates, Local linear approximation, Differentials, Curve sketching and Applied optimization problems.

Grading Policy

 

  1. Exam I: 25% (100 points) (Tuesday Nov.02, 2010). A common written exam. Material: Chapter 2.
  2. Exam II: 25 % (100 points) (Tentative) (Tuesday Dec.28, 2010). A common multiple choice exam. Material: 3.1 4.3.
  3. Class Work: 15% (60 points). It is based on quizzes (around 5 quizzes), homework, or other class activities determined by the instructor. Any quiz or test under class activity should be of written type and not of multiple choice types.
  4. Final Exam: 35% (140 points), a comprehensive common multiple choice exam.  (Sunday January 23, 2011 at 7:30 AM).

 

Class Work Average. The average (x out of 60) of the Class Work of the sections taught by the same instructor should be in the interval [36, 45].

 

Exam Questions: The questions of the common exams are based on the examples, homework problems, recitation problems and the exercises of the textbook.

 

Missing one of the Two Common Major Exams I or II:  No makeup exam will be given under any circumstance. When a student misses Exam I or Exam II for a legitimate reason (such as medical emergencies), his grade for this exam will be determined based on the existing formula which depends on his performance in the non-missing exam and in the final exam.

 

Attendance: Attendance is a University Requirement (see p. 38 of the Undergraduate Bulletin 2006-2009). A DN grade will be awarded to any student who accumulates 12 unexcused absences (lecture and recitation).

 

Academic Integrity: All KFUPM policies regarding ethics apply to this course.

*          CAS problems require the use of a technology tool (e.g., graphing calculators or computers). You are encouraged to do these problems in order to enhance your understanding of the concepts involved.

Tips on how to enhance your problem-solving abilities:

 

1.        Do all the homework assignments on time.

2.       You are urged to practice (but not memorize) more problems than the above lists.

3.       You should always try to solve a problem on your own before reading the solution or asking for help.

4.       If you find it difficult to handle a certain type of problems, you should try more problems of that type.

5.       You should try the recitation problems before coming to class.

6.       You are encouraged to solve some of the review problems at the end of each chapter.

7.       The practice you get doing homework and reviewing the class lectures and recitations will make exam problems easier to tackle.

8.      Try to make good use of the office hours of your instructor.
