# MATH-1600-LN01

Welcome to the permanent home page for Section LN01 of MATH-1600 (Calculus 1) at Southeast Community College in the Spring term of 2024. I am Toby Bartels, your instructor.

• Official syllabus (DjVu).
• Course policies (DjVu).
• Class hours: Mondays through Fridays from 10:00 to 10:50 in room U103.
• Final exam: May 17 Friday from 10:00 to 11:40 in room U103 (or by appointment).

## Contact information

Feel free to send a message at any time, even nights and weekends (although I'll be slower to respond then).

The official textbook for the course is the 4th Edition of University Calculus: Early Transcendentals by Hass et al published by Addison Wesley (Pearson). You automatically get an online version of this textbook through Canvas, although you can use a print version instead if you like. This comes with access to Pearson MyLab, integrated into Canvas, on which many of the assignments appear. I also have a supplemental text (DjVu) containing my notes on the material.

• Exercises due on March 6 Wednesday (submit this on Canvas or in class): Look at Example 3 on page 186 in Section 3.10 of the textbook. To solve this example, the textbook writes down five equations that are derived from the set-up (rather than from other equations):

2. x = 0.8;
3. y = 0.6;
4. dy/dt = −60; and
5. ds/dt = 20.
For each of these equations, in the context of this example, state (Yes or No) whether it makes sense to differentiate the equation with respect to time, that is to take the time derivative of both sides of the equation. (You can answer this from only understanding the set-up to the example; even if the textbook never differentiates an equation to solve the problem, it might still make sense to do so, or it might not.)

## Final exam

There is a comprehensive final exam on May 17 Friday, in our normal classroom at the normal time but lasting until 11:40. (You can also arrange to take it at a different time May 13–17.) To speed up grading at the end of the term, the exam is multiple choice and filling in blanks, with no partial credit.

For the exam, you may use one sheet of notes that you wrote yourself. However, you may not use your book or anything else not written by you. You certainly should not talk to other people! Calculators are allowed (although you shouldn't really need one), but not communication devices (like cell phones).

The exam consists of questions similar in style and content to those in the practice exam (DjVu).
