MATH 125 - Spring 2017

Math 125 prepares students for math, science, and engineering majors. Anyone considering going beyond Calculus II should take this sequence. The course focuses on the study of limits, derivatives, applications of differentiation, the integral and basic applications of the integral, and uses exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions.

Math 125 is taught as a Lecture-Lab course. Students attend a large lecture (125-250 students) three times per week and a small laboratory section (25-33 students) twice per week. Lectures record attendance and participation through the iClicker Response System. Laboratory sections are taught by mathematics graduate teaching assistants who also hold office and help room hours. All students take the same midterm and final exams.

Prerequisites: Math 103 or 104 with a grade of C- or higher, or three years of college preparatory mathematics including trigonometry and a score of 28 or higher on ACT mathematics, or a qualifying score on the mathematics placement exam.

Calculators and Midterm/Final Exams:   Only basic or scientific calculators will be permitted while taking exams. Calculators must not be able to perform calculus calculations (limits, derivatives, integrals, series) and must have no graphic capabilities. Recommended calculator:   TI-30X IIS
