Math 135 course material

Spring 2002

The final exam will be on THURSDAY, MAY 9 from 4pm to 7pm

This is the first semester of a two-semester sequence in calculus (Math 135-136). It is intended for students who are unlikely to take any math after this sequence. It is suitable for students who plan to major in biology (but not biochemistry!), pharmacy, or business, or who just want to take a little more math and investigate one of the major intellectual achievements of humanity.

Students who think they might major in mathematics, physics, biochemistry, chemistry, engineering, or those who think they might want to take almost any mathematics course at the 200 level or higher should take Math 151 rather than Math 135.

The textbook is:   Applied Calculus, customized for Rutgers University, by S.T. Tan

You are expected to read the book IN DETAIL, preferably prior to attending the lecture on the topic; lectures will not cover all the material you are expected to know, and if you try to read it first, you will come armed with questions.

  • Syllabus
  • WebWork: This semester all sections of math 135 will have a significant portion of their homework and grade given via the computerized system WeBWorK. Your lecturer will tell you how much of your grade will be based upon WeBWorK.
    For instructions on its use, see Student Introduction to WeBWork
  • Homework Assignments in addition to WeBWorK assignments.

  • Note: Just as one cannot develop muscles or endurance by watching sports, one cannot learn mathematics by watching lectures only. Doing all the homework is the only reliable way to learn mathematics. If you find it difficult, do MORE problems!
