Topics Outline for MA101 - Introductory Calculus - 2009-10

* last posted to site: 08/19/10 *

MA101 and MA102 combined are
equivalent to MA111, except that more that usual attention is paid to review
and practice. Depending on the class the amount of MA111 material covered
will vary though it is expected that the **non-italicized Course Topics,
given below, ** will be covered. The instructors
for MA101 and MA102 will collaborate on which set of topics will be covered
in each course.

### Textbook and other required materials

**Textbook:** Thomas' Calculus - Early Transcendentals Twelfth Edition - Weir, Hass

**Supplement:** Just in Time - bundled with text.

**Computer Usage:**** ** Maple14 must be available on your laptop

### **Approximate Timing and Pace **

There should be 3 or 4 tests, perhaps a final review day or two.
