Math 141: Calculus I

MWF 10:10-11am, HSS 60

Course Description

First-semester course in single variable differential calculus. Intended for students of the sciences, engineering, mathematics, and computer science.


High school trigonometry and satisfactory placement score, or Math 130. (Students who earn a grade of C or better in 141 or 151 may not subsequently receive credit for 130.)
We will assume that you have had sufficient pre-calculus preparation before enrolling in this course. In particular, you should know your trig identities and exact values, and inverse trig functions and their graphs. If you have not mastered these topics, it is recommended that you drop this course and take Math 130 (pre-calculus) first.

Calculator Policy

Calculators are not allowed in exams, and are not required for the class.

Nevertheless, a graphing calculator may be used for working on homework --but not one with advanced alphanumeric capabilities, such as the TI-89. The Mathematics Department highly recommends (and provides support for) the TI-83+ and TI-84+ models for this class.
