MAT 122-OVERVIEW OF CALCULUS-SPRING 2008

Lecturer: Bill Bernhard (bill@math.sunysb.edu)

Course Description: We will cover linear functions, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, the concept of the derivative and the concept of the integral. There will be an emphasis on applications of calculus to business models. A scientific calculator OR a graphing calculator is required for this course. Our textbook is Applied Calculus (Third Edition) by Hughes Hallet/Gleason/Lock/Flath/et al.

Grading: 25% for each of our 3 exams and 25% for a recitation grade. The recitation grade consists of attendance, participation, and completion of homework that is given in lecture. Please note that homework will not be posted, so you must attend lecture
