WELCOME

This is the homepage for MA 125: Calculus I

  • First-day handout available here


    Handouts (Click to download.)

  • 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.

    Assignments

    Monday, August 18: Section 2.1, 1 -- 17 odd-numbered problems. Guess the slopes of the tangent lines after doing some calculation, as we did in class.

    Wednesday, August 20: Section 2.2, 1 -- 17 odd. Find the limits by sketching the graph and letting the intelligent bugs do their thing.

    Friday, August 22: Section 2.2, 19 -- 65 odd.

    Monday, August 25: Section 2.3, 1 -- 23 odd.

    Wednesday, August 27: Section 2.3, 53, 54, 55, 59; and Section 2.4: 1 -- 19 odd.

    Friday, August 29: Section 2.4, 21 -- 41 odd; and Section 2.5, 1 -- 9 odd. We will say much more about Section 2.5 next Wednesday.
