Office Hours: XXXXXXXXXX
Required Materials: Scientific Calculator or Graphing Calculator (equal to TI-85 or less)
Required Text: Applied Calculus by Tan, Brooks/Cole, 2012. Ninth Edition
Course Description: Limits, derivatives of algebraic, exponential, and logarithmic functions, curve
sketching, applications to optimizing, and anti-differentiation. F, S, Su.
Course Objective: To provide students with an introduction to calculus as applied to business, economics,
the life and physical sciences, and the social sciences. Topics covered will include limit definition of a
derivative, derivatives of algebraic, exponential, and logarithmic functions, curve sketching, applications to
optimizing, and anti-differentiation.
Prerequisite: Math 130 or Math 130I with a grade of C or better or appropriate placement score.
Students Learning Outcomes: After completing this course, students should be able to:
Differentiate between Revenue, Profit and Cost, as well as, Marginal Revenue, Marginal Profit and
Marginal Cost functions.
Apply the topics of average rate of change and instantaneous rate of change (Derivatives) to
economic functions and other real-world applications.
Compute the limit definition of a derivative.
Demonstrate knowledge of derivative rules for algebraic, exponential, and logarithmic functions.
Apply derivatives to find local maxima and minima, inflection points, concavity and global maxima
and minima.
Construct anti-derivatives for algebraic, exponential and logarithmic functions using a variety of
integration techniques.
Compute definite integrals and its applications.
Class Attendance: Students are expected to attend class regularly. New information is given each day of
class, so it is important to pay attention to the topics covered so you will be prepared for the exams. You are
allowed to miss only 4 classes for T Th classes. If a student misses more than this, a grade of “F” may be
assigned, regardless of the grades earned on tests and quizzes. If you happen to miss a class, it is your
responsibility to get the lecture notes from another student in the class. Absences (include leaving class
early), whether excused or not excused, do not absolve the student from this responsibility. Attendance is
MANDATORY on scheduled exam days. There will be NO make-up tests unless approved ahead of time.
Missed tests may be made up only at the discretion of the professor. Under no circumstances will anyone
be able to take the test once the exams are returned. If you miss one test for an excused absence, the grade
you make on the final exam can be used to replace the missing grade. There will be NO make-up quizzes or
in-class homework. No extra credit will be given. This is a more stringent attendance policy than found in
the course catalog.
Students with Disabilities: Any student with a documented disability needing academic adjustments or
accommodations is requested to speak with me during the first week of class. All discussions will remain
Cell Phone Policy: All cell phones should be turned off and out of sight during class.
Student Code of Conduct: Coastal Carolina University is an academic community that expects the highest
standards of honesty, integrity and personal responsibility. Members of this community are accountable for
their actions and reporting the inappropriate action of others and are committed to creating an atmosphere of
mutual respect and trust.
