We will follow the text `Calculus' by Jon Rogowski published by W.H. Freeman and Co. and cover
Chapters 0-11.

This is a Calculus course for people who have had
some single variable calculus, but who are not quite ready for the next level
of courses (linear algebra, differential equations, calculus of several
variables). We will review the early chapters on limits, differentiation and
integration very quickly and then slow down a bit to cover the chapters on
exponentials, applications, differential equations and infinite series. Thus
the course is a mixture of reviewing things that I expect you to know already
and an introduction to other topics that you will study more carefully in later
courses. Expect to move quickly and do lots of difficult problems.

Homework problems will be asssigned
from the text and will be handed in at the recitation sections. The recitation
instructor will grade and return the homework and go over the solutions as
necessary. Unless otherwise stated, homework will be due at the Tuesday
recitation of each week, starting in Week 2.

There will be an in-class midterm at a date to be
announced. The final will count 40% of your grade and the midterm and homeworks will count 30% each.
