# Calculus 1

**Organization Of Course:** This a lecture-based course
where students are encouraged to discuss lecture

topics, text material, Mathematica labs and assigned exercises.

**Catalog Description:** MATH-155 - CALCULUS I 4
credits

Topics include the straight line, conic sections, inequalities, functions and

graphs, including trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic functions; limits

and continuity; differentiation of algebraic and transcendental functions;

maxima/minima theory; related rates; differentials. Computer laboratories

illustrating key concepts are an essential part of the course.

PREREQUISITES: Math232, Math145, Placement Level MM107, or

Permission of Instructor

**Attendance:** Attendance is required. A student who
misses 4 or more classes risks withdrawal

from the course. A student absent from class is responsible for all material

taught and for all procedural information discussed including any changes in

examination dates and assignments.

**STCC POLICY ON DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR**

"Behavior which disrupts the establishment or maintenance of the learning

environment may result in the student causing the behavior to be removed from

the classroom by the instructor. The student may be subject to further

disciplinary action..."

Please note that arriving late for class falls in this
category. Please make every

effort to arrive at class on time excessive tardiness is equivalent to missing
class

and will be dealt with likewise.

**Evaluation:** There will be four one-hour
examinations and a cumulative final examination,

which will be valued as two hour examinations, administered in this course. The

labs will count as one test score. The final average will be computed based on

the best six of seven scores (note: lab grade will not be dropped).

**Make-ups:** There will be no make up exams without
prior notice to the professor. The

makeup will be taken in the Math Center and you will not get the test back. You

will have to make an appointment with professor to discuss your grade.

**Mathematica Labs:** There are six labs to be turned
in for the value of one test grade. This grade will

not be dropped.

**Academic Dishonesty:** If at any time during the
semester there is any evidence of academic dishonesty

by students on an examination, then these students will be dismissed from the

course with an automatic grade of F and may be taken to the Dean of Students.
