Course DescriptionThis course introduces the concept of the limit and the derivative. In so doing, related topics in trigonometry and college algebra also are reviewed, including pertinent aspects of functions, polynomials, rational expressions, and analytic geometry. This course is a required skills-building course for students desiring to complete Math 109. (Credit cannot be earned in Math 108 after satisfactory completion of Math 110.) Prerequisite: By placement only. Not open to students who have completed Math 110 with a grade of C- or better. This course is being offered on a pilot basis for the 2018-2019 academic year. (This course meets the Quantitative Reasoning GEC requirement.)
Calculus 1 with Precalculus (3rd edition) by Larson and Edwards.
Topics to be coveredThe following is a tentative list of topics that will be covered:
The course grade will be based on:
Supported Study 5%,
Midterm 1 15%,
Midterm 2 15%,
Midterm 3 15%
Final Exam 30%.
There will be written homework weekly. The homework will be turned in and will reinforce the matertial learned in class. Collaboration in
the homework is permitted, however you must write your own solutions in your own words (or symbols). You must also support your answers with the intermediate
steps you took to reach the answer.
You can find the homework assignments for this class below:
There will be a weekly quiz. The quiz will be at the beginning of class on Fridays. The topics for each quiz come from the homework due the day of the quiz.
AttendanceStudents are expected to come to every lecture and every exam. If the dates of the exams conflict with Lake Forest approved events, inform me as soon as possible.
Supported StudyStudying Calculus individually is very important for solidifying concepts and recall in your own minds (vocabulary, basic problem-solving strategies, etc.). Study supported by more advanced students, however, is especially helpful in mastering the course materials (i.e. understanding how to modify basic strategies when presented with new problems). To that end, we\92ve instituted a Supported Study requirement of your participation grade in this course. The simplest way to meet this requirement is to attend Calculus Study Thursdays from 7 to 8 pm in Hotchkiss 101. Alternative ways to meet this requirement are to attend either (a) weekly tutor sessions at the Quantitative Resource Center or (b) faculty office hours. This requirement is in place through 10/25 and optional through review for the Final Exam on 12/19.
If you believe that you need accommodations for a disability, please consult with The Learning and Teaching Center. Since accommodations may require early planning and are not retroactive, please contact the center as soon as possible. For details about the services for students with disabilities and the accomodations process, visit http://www.lakeforest.edu/academics/resources/disability/.
You are also welcome to contact me privately to discuss your academic needs. However, all disability-related accommodations must be arranged through Teryn Robinson at the Learning and Teaching Center.
Description of instructional time and expectations:This course meets 3 times per week for 4.5 hours per week. The course carries 1.0 course credit (equivalent to four semester credit hours). Students are expected to devote a minimum of 12 hours of total work per week (in-class time plus out-of-class work) to this course.
Academic HonestyPlease read the College's information on Academic Honesty. If a student cheats in an exam, quiz or homework assignment, I will proceed with charging the student with the Academic Honesty Judicial Board. The usual (first) penalty is a 0 in the assignment on which the cheating occured plus some ethics lectures the student would take. The second penalty is usually suspension.
