MTH 141
College Calculus I
4.0 Stewart, Calculus: Single Variable (Early Transcendentals, 7th UB Custom Edition OR Regular 7th ed..), Brooks/Cole/Cengage (Use of 7th edition begins Fall 2011.) This is the beginning of a 3-semester sequence in calculus for students of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering. Covers differentiation and integration with applications. NYS Regents Math B or MTH 115. MTH 141 covers through Chapter 5 of the text. The syllabus is written for 12 full teaching weeks, 24 lectures on a TTh schedule or 36 lectures on a MWF schedule. In a typical semester there are 28 or 29 TTh teaching days and 41 or 42 MWF teaching days. Some time is thus available for review and for exams. The schedule below is a guideline. Omit optional material if you have any doubts about finishing the material from Chapter 5. Dont leave MTH 142 instructors with a gap! You can help us improve this guideline by recording your actual pace (and any other relevant thoughts) as you go, and providing a copy of this record to the Office of Undergraduate Studies at the end of the semester. Thanks!
