·        Prerequisites: A grade of C or better in Math 1301 or placement by exam taken at UHD.

·        Catalog Description: Functions, limits, continuity, differentiation, integration, and partial derivatives. Applications of all techniques to business, economics and the social sciences are stressed.

·        All students are subject to UHD’s Academic Honesty Policy and to all other university-wide policies and procedures as they are set forth in the UHD University Catalogue and Student Handbook.

·        UHD adheres to all applicable federal, state, and local laws, regulations, and guidelines with respect to providing reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities. Students should register with Student Services (S409 or 713-221-8430) and contact me to arrange for appropriate accommodations.

·        Any student enrolled in this course should make use of the Academic Support Center in N925 where there is free tutorial assistance, video tapes on the course topics to check out from the front desk or from the Math Lab Tutors for use in the room, and work areas.

·        You are expected to come to every class, be on time, take notes, read the textbook, do the homework corresponding to the material discussed in class (about one hour per section), correct your own homework with the answers in the back of the book, ask questions, and participate in a positive manner in class. All work passed in for credit must have your name, book’s section number, and all relevant work. Your questions must be indicated by a “?” in the margin to catch my attention – leave room for me to write. See me about any further clarification.

·        NO make-ups will be given. If your work is not passed in on the day due, it will not receive full credit so you will need to do extra credit point work to make up the points. If you miss a test, see me as soon as possible (I will do your current average, we can discuss your options, and you will be given a required test to do for homework.

·        Last day to withdraw is R, June 22, 2006 (6pm). The last class day is W, June 28th.


Goals/Objectives: At the completion of this course, the student should be able to

(1)               find limits of polynomial and rational expressions

(2)               check whether a given function is continuous or not

(3)               find derivatives of various elementary functions

(4)               find the maximum and/or minimum values of functions using calculus techniques

(5)               apply differentiation to problems in business, economics, and social sciences

(6)               find anti-derivatives, indefinite and definite integrals, and apply these concepts to problems in business and economics

(7)               use calculus to analyze functions and sketch their graphs

(8)               find the area under the curve or the area between curves and apply this technique to selected applications


Grades will be available at www.uhd.edu/eservices from noon R, July 6th
