                                          satisfying objective 00UP for the Science Program). You will also apply what has been learned to one or

                                                8) appropriate attitudes.

Course Objectives:                        The calculus courses introduce the student to that branch of mathematics called analysis. In this course the
                                          student will learn to apply integral calculus methods to the study of functions and to problem solving. To
                                          meet this objective, the student will learn:
                                               1) to calculate the indefinite integral of a function
                                               2) to calculate the definite integral over an interval as well as improper integrals
                                               3) to represent concrete situations as differential equations and to solve simple differential equations
                                                    (separable variables)
                                               4) to calculate areas, volumes and lengths as well as construct graphic representations of objects in
                                                    #2 and # 3
                                                 5)     Analyse the convergence of series

Course Description:                       The course will follow the lecture method with frequent problem solving interludes during which the
                                          teacher will be available for individual help.
                                          Student should feel free and are welcome to ask questions at any point during the lecture.

Integrative Activity:                     The integrative activity this semester is a multi-disciplinary study of the science of Working Out. This
                                          course will, in conjunction with the other science disciplines, cover the calculus techniques needed for this
                                          study. The assessment of this study will be done in the other science courses.

Absences:                                 Attendance is mandatory and a maximum of 7 absences will be tolerated (explained and/or unexplained).
                                          More than the 7 absences may mean failure in the course.

Rules & Regulations:                      St. Lawrence Campus has definite regulations concerning cheating, plagiarism and the quality of written
                                          English which are clearly indicated in the Student Handbook and the St. Lawrence Campus Prospectus. It
                                          will be assumed that all students have read and understood these rules and regulations.

         Criteria:             The evaluation in this course will verify that students have learned:
                                   1) to use the appropriate concepts
                                   2) to adequately represent surfaces in #2 and # 3
                                    3)    to choose and apply the correct rules and integration techniques
                                    4)    to manipulate algebraic expressions correctly
                                    5)    to arrive at exact answers
                                    6)    to arrive at correct interpretations of results
                                    7)    to be able to justify their reasoning in the steps they take
                                    8)    to use the appropriate terminology (notation)
           In order to do so, there will be
           Exercises:          Exercise problems will be given regularly; these will be neither collected nor graded but will be essential to
                               your progression. It will be imperative that you attempt some, if not all, of the assigned problems.
           Gifts:              Regular "Gifts" (i.e. homework) will be given. Students will be expected to submit their "Gift" the
                               following school day in a NEAT and LEGIBLE way, LATE "Gifts" will not be accepted
           Quizzes:            Regular (weekly, ~10 minutes) quizzes will be given during the semester on the topic(s) covered during the
                               week. A student missing a quiz will automatically be given the result “0” for that quiz.
           Tests:              • There will be 3 class tests during the semester which are compulsory. A student missing a test will
                                  automatically be given the result “0” for that test.
                               • Students are responsible for knowing when a test will be given. Ignorance of a test date will not be
                                  considered a valid excuse.
                               • In the event that the college closes or the teacher is absent on an assignment due date or a scheduled test
                                  date, the due date or test is moved to the next school day automatically.
           Final Exam:         There will be a three hours comprehensive final examination at the end of the semester.

           Grading             The midterm and final grade will be calculated as follows:
                                                                              Midterm Grade            Final Grade
