Section Description

Calculus 1 is an introduction to calculus of functions of one variable. We will study concepts such as limits, continuity, techniques and applications of differentiation and integration. These topics will be presented in a manner that is accessible to students in the hybrid course environment, will retaining the rigor needed for pursuing degrees in technical fields such as mathematics, statistics, engineering, or the physical sciences. A strong background in secondary school algebra and trigonometry is a pre-requisite for this course. Students with insufficient preparation in secondary school mathematics should take MATH 010 prior to enrolling in MATH 021. Our course is set-up in three parts. ? June 16 - June 22 (Online) In this week, we will be studying functions and models. This chapter will cover: ways to represents a function, mathematical models, shifting/stretching of functions, exponential and logarithmic functions. Homework will be completed online through WebAssign. Learning modules will consist of videos and online lecture notes for these topics. ? June 23 - June 27, 9:00am-12:00pm and 1:15-4:15pm (Classroom) and June 30 ? July 2, 9:00am-12:00pm and 1:15-4:15pm (Classroom) In this portion of our course, we will be reinforcing ideas related to limits and developing concepts related to derivatives, including their applications. Our class time will consist of lectures, exploratory activities and labs, as well as quizzes. Generally, morning sessions will be a blend of lecture, activities and quizzes. The afternoon sessions will include time to work on homework. ? July 5 - July 11 (Online) In this week, we will be wrapping up a few last topics and concluding our course. You will be completing your final projects in this week.

Evaluation

Homework (25%) will be completed online through WebAssign. Labs and in class explorations (25%) are completed during our class time on campus. These involve both paper/pencil type explorations, as well as explorations using Mathematica. Quizzes (35%) will occur both online and in the class sessions at UVM. Quiz questions are generally similar to homework and in class examples. For each quiz, an outline of topics and/or selected exercises are announced to help you focus your preparation for the quiz. The final project (10%) consists of a two free response type questions which tie together course concepts and your choice of five exemplary exercise/concepts (one from each Chapter of study). Participation (5%) in all class sessions is expected. You are expected to arrive on-time and to stay in the class for the full class period, to actively participate in class (e.g. asking/answering questions in class), to refrain from any distracting behavior during class.
