WELCOME

This is the homepage for MA 125: Calculus I

  • First-day handout available here


    Handouts (Click to download.)

  • Solutions to the first exam are here.

  • Two Mathematica examples here. The first refers to problem 15 in section 2.2. The second shows the graph of sin(x)/x and computes a value close to x=0. Using Mathematica is very easy. Try typing in the (bold-face) line and hitting "return." Then modify and try again. Mathematica has on-line help features, if you need them. I strongly encourage you to experiment with this program, which is installed on the computers in the lab.
