MAT 151 : Calculus 1 : The Study of Change COURSE OUTLINE
Catalog Description:
This is the
first course in the standard integrated calculus sequence. Topics covered
include differentiation and integration of algebraic and trigonometric
functions.
Applications include curve sketching, related
rates, maxima and minima, and approximations, and calculation of areas and
volumes of revolution.
There is an emphasis on the theory of limits and continuity.
Prerequisites: MAT146 or MAT116 with minimum C grade

Makeups: No makeups are given for any reason. When valid excuses are produced in writing, work may be replaced by equivalent work from the final exam.
Classwork can only be done in class or via "Zoom," and answers are presented in complete sentences. Reviews are culminations of quizzes, with help available. Quizzes have no help and are due before the next class. Practice tests and Exams have time limits of 2 hours. All exams/midterm/final require worksheets showing all work including calculator steps, and failure to do so will result in lost credit..
