Description. This is the first course in diffenrential and integral calculus. We will firstintroduce the notion of limits. Then we will focus on computation of derivatives. In theend, we will define integrations and look at some simple cases. More on integrations will bestudied in the course Math 31B.
Schedule. In the first two parts of the course, we will first define limits, trigonometricfunctions, and derivatives., and then focus on calculus of derivatives. In the last part, wewill look at some simple integrals.

Holidays:

- Martin Luther King, Jr, holiday, Monday, January 15.
- Presidents’ Day holiday, Monday, February 19

Homework. Homework is assigned weekly and collected at the begining of the class onWednesday. Homework exercises are picked from the textbook. There is no make-up homework. The lowest score is dropped from the computation of your grade.
Exam Dates:
- Midterm 1: Monday of week 4, Jan 29, 2:00pm-2:50pm.
- Midterm 2: Wednesday of week 7, Feb 21, 2:00pm-2:50pm.
-Cumulative Final Exam: Monday, Mar 19, 11:30am-2:30pm.

Grading. For homework and exams, we will use centesimal system. In the end, we will calculate a “pre-final grade” by using the following two methods, and only the higher output will count.
- 10% Homework + 30% Best of the two midterms + 60%Final Exam.
- 10% Homework + 25% Midterm 1 + 25% Midterm 2 + 40% Final Exam.
For the final grade we will use ABC system. It depends only on the rank of your pre-final grade in the class. Roughly, the first 25% of the class will get an A (including A+, A and A-), the second 50% will get a B (including B+, B and B-) and the last 25% will get a C or lower (including C+, C , C- and D).
