(2008-12-21) Final Grades Posted at http://betterfilecabinet.com/f08/226grades.html

**Course Title**. Calculus I**Instructor of Record**. Eric Hsu, erichsu@math.sfsu.edu, http://math.sfsu.edu/hsu, TH 932, 510-288-8438.**Co-Instructors**. Addie Evans, adde@sfsu.edu / Kristen Freeman, kdfreema@sfsu.edu / Eric Miranda, emiranda@sfsu.edu.**Office Hours**. Eric’s are probably Tu 2-3:15, Thu 11-11:45, and by appointment. Also as an experiment: M 2-4 by Skype (DrEricHsu) or AIM (DrEricHsu).**Bulletin Description**. Graphs; differentiation: theory, techniques, and applications. Integration, fundamental theorem of calculus, applications of integration, transcendental functions.**Prerequisite**. Satisfactory completion of ELM requirement and MATH 109 or equivalent with a grade of C or better.**Meeting Time and Place.**- (226.06) Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:35-10:50,
~~HUM 129~~**GYM 114**(changed!) - (226.08) Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:35-1:50, HUM 383
- There is an official 4th hour listed, but we will not meet for that hour. Instead, you will watch lectures streamed on the internet at a time of your choosing.

- (226.06) Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:35-10:50,
**Course Home Web Page.**http://coursecompass.com.- Register; for an account and use Course ID: meredith34706 (for 226.06); or meredith07688 (for 226.08). Don’t worry if David Meredith appears to be the teacher. It really is our class. Click “Find Course”. Click “Access Code”. Enter the access code that came with your textbook in ALL CAPS.

**Your; Grades**. I will occasionally post the master grade spreadsheet at http://betterfilecabinet.com/f08/226grades.html.

- You will get an
of material via lectures streamed over the internet as well as through reading a textbook (*organized presentation**University Calculus ELEMENTS with Early Transcendentals*by Hass, Weir, and Thomas). You should buy the textbook package at the school store, as it includes a bundle of solutions and access to the textbook web site.- You will need RealPlayer (http://www.real.com/freeplayer/?rppr=rnwk). This should be free; they may try to trick you into paying, so beware.

- You will practice the
of calculus during homework assignments entered on the computer at the textbook web site. The computer will grade your work on the spot and give you a chance to redo/get help on/re-practice items. There will also be a weekly written assignment.*mechanics*- Register on a computer you have regular access to. You will need to install a number of software packages.

- You will learn to use calculus to
in the live meeting time. We’ll solve problems alone and in small groups. Because of the emphasis on in-class activity, attendance is mandatory. Missing class without prior notice will cause damage to your academic experience, your grade, and may cause you to be dropped from the class roster. You will also have short weekly writing assignments to practice making arguments.*solve problems and make arguments*

Assignments are due by **Tuesday**. For full credit, complete the previous week’s * online* HW before Tuesday class time. Turn in any

You are allowed and encouraged to work on the homework in groups, but you must write up (or type in) the solutions yourself and in your own words or it will be considered cheating. This includes the computer homework problems. It would be fine to try the computer problems separately, then meet to discuss the harder ones, then separately complete the online assignment.

There is no curve, so the grades of your fellow students cannot affect your grade. You’ll all be better off helping each other. My intention is to give points of 900+ some kind of A, 800+ some kind of B, 700+ some kind of C, 600+ some kind of D.

**Key Dates for This Class**. See Math 226.06 and 226.08 F08 Schedule (also linked at coursecompass.com).**Add, Drop, and Withdraw Deadlines**. You can find an official list athttp:/www.sfsu.edu/admisrec/reg/regsched.html/**Religious Holidays**. I will make reasonable accommodations for you to observe religious holidays when such observances require you to be absent from class activities. It is your responsibility to inform me during the first two weeks of the class each semester, in writing, about such holidays. You can jog your memory by referring to http://www.interfaithcalendar.org/**Disabilities**. Students with disabilities who need reasonable accommodations are encouraged to contact me. The Disability Program and Resource Center is available to facilitate the reasonable accommodations process. The DPRC, located in SSB 110, can be reached by telephone at 338-2472 (voice/TTY) or by email at dprc@sfsu.edu .**Tutoring**. There are two free tutoring services on campus: CARP (http://www.sfsu.edu/~carp1/) and LAC (http://www.sfsu.edu/~lac/). Did I mention they are free? You should take advantage of this if you want someone to talk with about the math. The math department also offers free tutoring in the Fourth Floor Tutoring Room in Thornton Hall.

- (
**Limits**) evaluate a variety of limits including limits at infinity, one-sided limits, and limits of indeterminate forms; be able to identify discontinuities in functions presented algebraically or graphically; - (
**Definition of derivative**) apply the definition of derivative to calculate and estimate derivatives from formulas, graphs, or data; - (
**Differentiation skills**) differentiate sums, product and quotients of composite polynomial, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions; - (
**Interpreting derivatives**) discuss the conceptual relations between derivatives, rates of change, and tangent lines in the context of an applied example; - (
**Graph analysis**) use asymptotes, first and second derivatives to graph functions; - (
**Problem solving**) solve applied problems using calculus and justify answers; - (
**Riemann sums**) estimate a definite integral with a Riemann sum, supply a sketch; - (

Furthermore, successful students will

- Learn and explore the ideas of calculus, one of the great human intellectual achievements built on thousands of years of study by cultures around the world;
- See math as interesting and relevant;
- Communicate precisely about logical and mathematical material;
- Represent mathematical situations in different powerful ways;
- Be prepared to succeed in Calculus II or whatever future path builds on this experience.
