Welcome to MATH 110, Section 003

MATH 110 is a two-term course in Differential Calculus. The main topics covered are Limits and Derivatives of elementary functions, Related Rates problems, Optimization, graphing, and Approximations. We also review some key precalculus concepts, such as functions, points and lines, basic trigonometry, exponentials and logarithms, etc. For a  list of topics and grade breakdown, visit Syllabus.

MATH 110 has three sections. All sections cover the same material, follow a similar schedule, and write the same exams, however, homework and quizzes are different in each section. This webpage contains specific information about Section 003.

The links at the top of this page will take you to useful pages where you can find information about the section syllabus, grade breakdown, posted notes for each class, quizzes and homework with solutions, and also some useful links and resources. Check out these pages regularly for updates.

Textbook:  The required textbook is Contemporary Calculus by Dale Hoffman. This is an online textbook available for free under the Creative Commons license. You are encouraged to download a copy from the link above; you may also print it out if you wish.
