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.
