Course description: This course will cover vectors in two dimensions, differentiation and integration of functions of one variable, and applications such as work, velocity/acceleration, optimization (max/min), and curve sketching. The course meets three times in lecture and twice per week in recitation. One of your recitation meetings is designed to discuss questions concerning the homework or lectures. The other recitation meets in the computer laboratory where the computer package Matlab will be introduced. The goal of the laboratory portion of the course is to show how problems that are too difficult to solve hand can be solved with the help of the computer. The prerequisite for this course is either Math 150 (precalculus) or a good high school mathematics background that includes algebra II, analytic geometry and trigonometry.
