Current Catalog Description

  • (4) Credit Hours. The calculus of functions of one real variable. Precise definitions of limits, derivatives, and integrals including Riemann sums; applications of these concepts and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Every semester. prerequisites: MATH 1720 or MATH 1730 with a minimum grade of C or Math ACT 28 or above, or department head approval.

  • We will quickly review Chapter 1 and then go through Chapters 2-5 in detail.

Attendance Policy

  • You are expected to attend every class. Coming late and leaving early should be rare occurrences since it is impolite and distracting to the entire class. However, it is better to be tardy than not to come at all. If you are tardy, please enter as quietly as possible and sit near the entrance. If you have to leave early for any reason, please let me know ahead of time and sit near the exit, if possible.
  • Attendance will be recorded beginning September 3rd. You will be rewarded 2% bonus points if you miss no class or have a documental excuse (e.g., doctor's excuse) for each missed class. You will fail this course if you miss more than 9 classes, unless your overall score is over 90%.


  • We will have homeworks, four in-class exams, and the comprehensive final exam. They count 30%, 40%, and 30%, respectively.
  • Your grade is determined by your overall score as below:
    90% - 102% = A, 80% - 89% = B, 70% - 79% = C, 60% - 69% = D, 0% - 59% = F.

  • Doing homework seriously is of crucial importance for gaining mastery of the materials, as well as a good grade (because homeworks count 30%, the same amount as the final exam).
  • For each homework, I will select one problem to grade.
  • Your homework score will be determined by the following two equally weighted criteria: completeness (of all assigned problems) and correctness (of the selected problem). 

Exam Guide (PDF)

  • This is for you to prepare exams.
  • It also serves as a study guide, because it lists the most important knowledge and skills you should know in this class.
