COURSE OBJECTIVES AND LEARNING OUTCOMES:
Math 125 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 125 covers chapters 1 - 6 and section 7.1 of Calculus, Single Variable; 6th edition; Hughes-Hallett, et al.; Wiley.
The Textbook and WebAssign access for homework are being delivered digitally via D2L through the Inclusive Access program.
A graphing calculator is required for Math 125. 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. See here for more information about calculator models. Students are not allowed to share calculators during exams and quizzes.
Math 125 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 125 D2L site.
Additional homework and/or quizzes may be assigned by instructors. Be sure to check with your instructor.
