Course Descriptions:

Fall 2017: Calculus I MATH& 151, 5 credits, item #3074 section 1DL
Winter 2018: Calculus II MATH& 152, 5 credits, item #0000 section 1DL
Spring 2018: Calculus III MATH& 153, 5 credits, item #0000 section 1DL

These FULLY ONLINE calculus courses are the first three courses of the four-term sequence of Calculus for Engineering and the Sciences. The goal of these courses is not only to learn calculus but also to improve your critical thinking and problem solving abilities. These are challenging technical courses intended for those in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) majors. The quantitative skills requirement of the general education distribution is met by any one of these course.

Calculus I covers limits, continuity, differentiation including applications, curve sketching, anti-derivatives, and introduces integration including numeric integration. Calculus II covers indeterminate forms, hyperbolic functions, methods of integration, applications of the integral to geometry and physics, and the calculus of parametric equations, polar equations, and conic sections. Calculus III covers infinite series, power series, vectors in two and three dimensions, and vector-valued functions. Calculus IV is a vector-based multivariate calculus course, but Clark does not currently offer it online.


These online courses require a basic knowledge of computers and the internet.

Prerequisite to Math& 151: To qualify for Calculus I you must have met BOTH of the following prerequisites: (1) College Algebra (Clark's math 111) passed with a grade of at least "C" or qualifying score on the placement test, AND (2) College Trigonometry (Clark's math 103) passed with a grade of at least "C" or qualifying score on the placement test.

Prerequisite to Math& 152: Calculus I (Clark's math& 151 or equivalent) passed with a grade of at least "C" or qualifying score on the placement test.

Prerequisite to Math& 153: Calculus II (Clark's math& 152 or equivalent) passed with a grade of at least "C" or qualifying score on the placement test.

Technology Requirements:

See MathOL Syllabus - Tech Reqs.


The mathematics division has identified the following course level outcomes for which you should be proficient upon successful completion of the course.

Math& 151 Outcomes

  1. Determine if a limit exists using appropriate techniques, and evaluate it if it does exist.
  2. Demonstrate understanding of the relationship between a function and its derivatives.
  3. Find a derivative by hand using basic differentiation rules.
  4. Solve an applied rate of change problem.
  5. Evaluate a basic integral, and interpret its meaning in context.

Math& 152 Outcomes

  1. Select and use an appropriate technique to evaluate an integral.
  2. Construct an integral to model an applied problem.
  3. Connect an integral with its geometric interpretation (such as its application to volumes.)
  4. Demonstrate calculus techniques in the context of parametric and/or polar equations.

Math& 153 Outcomes

  1. Distinguish between sequences and series, and use appropriate methods to determine convergence or divergence.
  2. Write a function as a power series, and demonstrate its use in an appropriate context.
  3. Represent points and equations in 3‐dimensional coordinate systems.
  4. Demonstrate understanding of vector algebra including lines and planes.
  5. Analyze vector‐valued functions using calculus.

How will you be assessed on these outcomes? See Mathematics Online Syllabus: Outcomes Assessment.

How to Register in WAMAP:

This class meets in WAMAP (WM) a course management system (CMS) designed for mathematics online courses. Register (free) as a new student in WAMAP or login if you already have an account.

Important! When registering in WAMAP you must use your Clark Student Email address (your @students.clark.edu addy) ONLY!

You will need the WAMAP Course ID Code below.
Leave the "enrollment key" blank.

Fall 2017 Math 151 WAMAP COURSE ID CODE: 15517
Winter 2018 Math 152 WAMAP COURSE ID CODE: 00000
Spring 2019 Math 153 WAMAP COURSE ID CODE: 00000

Textbook and Supplements:


MyMathLab Student Access Kit (ISBN 032119991X / 9780321199911)

MyMathLab (MML) access to the e-textbook, exercises, and tests is REQUIRED. MyMathLab is an online course delivery system provided by the textbook publisher. In MyMathLab you can read the complete textbook online, watch video lectures, work interactive tutorial exercises, and take tests.

CLICK HERE for MYMATHLAB COURSE ID CODE, free temporary access, purchasing options, and registration directions.

Calculus for Scientists and Engineers - Early Transcendentals
1st edition by Briggs/Cochran/Gillett/Schulz (ISBN 9780321785374).

Buying a hard copy text is completely OPTIONAL and unnecessary unless you really want one since the entire textbook is available online inside the required MyMathLab. If you do opt to buy the hard copy text new, make sure it comes bundled with a MyMathLab access code. If you buy the hard copy text used you will have to purchase the MyMathLab Student Access Kit separately.

TO STUDENTS WHO HAVE THE ON-CAMPUS TEXT: If you already have the textbook used in the on-campus Calculus 151-153 classes then you may use it to study from rather than the textbook listed above, but the sections will not match perfectly. Note that you are still required to have MyMathLab access since the tests are conducted there.

SUPPLEMENTAL ONLINE TUTORIAL VIDEOS: Your #1 source for video tutorials should be the videos linked to the textbook inside MyMathLab. If you need more help then search the topic you wish to study in one of the following recommended tutorial sites. Each has a long list of topics and peer-reviewed examples.


How to Purchase and Register in MyMathLab:

To register with MyMathLab you will need two codes:
(1) the MyMathLab Course ID Code below, and
(2) a MyMathLab Access Code (from the Student Kit you purchased *)

Important! When registering in MML you must use the SAME NAME that you use for Clark College class registration and your Clark Student Email address (your @students.clark.edu) ONLY!

Fall 2017 Math 151 MYMATHLAB COURSE ID CODE: keely44622 How To Reg
Winter 2018 Math 152 MYMATHLAB COURSE ID CODE: keely00000
Spring 2018 Math 153 MYMATHLAB COURSE ID CODE: keely00000

* Note: Pearson Publishing provides temporary FREE access to MyMathLab. This is a great option if you cannot pay for MyMathLab on the first day or class or if you might drop the class early in the term. It provides FULL access to the course for a couple of weeks. The course is set to allow conversion from free to paid access within the first month of class only, so be sure to purchase MML access and register your code by then.
