and is particularly useful in the first week of the term.
Course name Calculus I, Course number MATH& 151, 5 credits, section D04D, item #1943 Dates: 9/20/2021 – 12/7/2021 including the final examination. Format: This is a fully online course conducted asynchronously in Canvas and MyMathLab. This is NOT a "remote learning" format, thus has no real-time class meetings (ie. NO Zoom). FAQ - What's the difference between online and remote class? What does "asynchronous" mean? Coverage: Calculus I is the first in a four-quarter sequence of Calculus for Engineering and the Sciences. Calculus I covers limits, continuity, differentiation including applications, curve sketching, anti-derivatives, and introduces integration including numeric integration. The goal of this course is not only to learn calculus, but also to improve your critical thinking and problem-solving abilities. This is a challenging technical course intended for those in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) majors. The quantitative skills requirement [Q] of the general education distribution is met by this course. To qualify for Calculus I you must have met BOTH of the following prerequisites: (1) College Algebra (Clark's math 110 or 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. The Mathematics Department has identified the following course level outcomes for which you should be proficient upon successful completion of the course.
How will you be assessed on these outcomes? See Mathematics Online Syllabus: Outcomes Assessment.
MyMathLab Software and e-Textbook: MyMathLab access with included e-textbook is REQUIRED. Physical textbook is OPTIONAL. MyMathLab (MML) access is required to access the tests. MML is a digital learning platform provided by the textbook publisher. In MML you can read the e-textbook, watch video tutorials, work interactive practice problems, and take tests. The complete textbook is included as an online e-textbook inside MyMathLab.
Free Temporary Access to MML: If you do NOT already have access to this textbook in MML from a previous term, start with the free temporary access to MML available through Canvas from Pearson. It provides full access to the course materials for two weeks. Registration directions are provided in class. Ultimately you will need to purchase access, but it is wise to take advantage of the free access first. MML Course ID Code: The directions provided in the MML access card will not work. Instead, you must register for MML using the link provided in our Canvas classroom. Using a different textbook or older edition for study: All standard “early transcendental” Calculus-for-STEM textbooks cover about the same material. So if you have a textbook that you connect well with, certainly use it to study from. Of course, you are still required to have MyMathLab access since the tests are conducted there. |
