First Semester Calculus (MATH 122B)


COURSE OBJECTIVES

Math 122B is an introduction to first-semester calculus for engineering, science and math students, with an emphasis on understanding, problem solving, and modeling. Upon completion of the course, the student will:

  • Use derivatives to analyze and graph algebraic and transcendental functions;
  • Select and apply models and differentiation techniques to applications involving, but not limited to, optimization and related rates;
  • Apply the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to evaluate integrals;
  • Use estimation techniques to approximate rates of change, area, and total change.

Math 122B is a 4-unit course that will run from September 12 through the end of the semester. Students must meet eligibility requirements. Students who complete Math 122B with a grade of C or higher are eligible for Math 129 or other courses which require completion of Calculus I.

CALCULATORS

A graphing calculator is required for Math 122B. We recommend any model in the TI-83 or TI-84 series. Models that can perform symbolic calculations (also known as CAS) are NOT allowed on exams and quizzes. CAS models include (but are not limited to) the TI-89,TI NSpire CAS, HP 50g, and Casio Classpad 330. For more information about models, see http://math.arizona.edu/academics/calculators . Students are not allowed to share calculators during exams and quizzes.


HOMEWORK

Math 122B uses a computer grading program called WebAssign for textbook assignments. Logging into WebAssign can only be done through the WebAssign Login link in your Math 122B D2L site.

Additional homework and/or quizzes may be assigned by instructors. Be sure to check with your instructor.
