Frequency: Fall/Spring Terms
Catalog description: Functions, limits, continuity and derivatives. Applications: extreme values, the Mean Value Theorem and its applications, graphing. The definite integral. Area and volume as integrals. The indefinite integral. Transcendental functions and their derivatives. L'Hospital's Rule. Techniques of integration. Improper integrals.
Justification for the Course Proposal: This is a fundamental course designed for all science and engineering students.
Course Objectives: The sequence Math 119-120 is the standard complete introduction to the concepts and methods of calculus, taken by all engineering students. The emphasis is on concepts, solving problems, theory and proofs. All sections take uniform midterm and final exams. Students develop their reading, writing and questioning skills in mathematics.
Course Coordinator: İbrahim Ünal (office: R-134, phone: x2916, email: uibrahim_at_metu.edu.tr)
Exams and Grading: Course grades are determined by (online) homework, short exams (given in recitations), two (non-cumulative) midterm exams, and a cumulative final exam, as well as a small number of bonus points awarded on the basis of attendance, class participation, and/or project completion.
- Homework: 10 % (WeBWork)
- Short Exams: 10 %
- Midterm Exams: 2x 25 % = 50 %
- Final Exam: 30 %
- Bonus: 5 % (policy varies between sections)
Homework: There will be 7 online homeworks and 3 written homeworks. The online homeworks are assigned and graded weekly using the online WeBWork system. The written homeworks cover epsilon-delta proofs, optimization, and curve sketching. The final written homework (curve sketching) includes a MATLAB component.
Suggested Problems: Due to the limitations of WeBWork, complete mastery of subject material will require solving additional theoretical problems. For each lecture, the assistants will announce additional suggested problems from the textbook. Their list of problems is available on the course website. It is important for students to solve these problems regularly; however the solutions will not be collected or graded.

Make-up Policy: In order to be eligible to enter the make-up examination for a missed examination, a student must have a documented or verifiable and officially acceptable excuse. It is not possible to make up multiple missed exams. The make-up examination for all exams will be after the final exam, and will include all topics.
Math Help Room: The mathematics help room in T-103 is a room staffed by mathematics faculty and teaching assistants where students may gather to ask questions, work on homework, and view exams. Students are also invited to seek out instructors in their offices.
