Fall 2016
Instructor: Andreas Holmsen
Office: Building E6-1, office 4411
email: andreash@kaist.edu
Telephone: 7300 (from outside of KAIST dial (042)-350-7300)
Teaching Assistant: TBA
Lectures: Mondays and Wednesdays 9h00-10h30 in E11 Room 201
Recitation classes: TBA
Course Language:
Lectures and recitation classes will be in English. Quizzes and exams are also expected to
be written in English.
Textbook:
Thomas Calculus. Early Transcendentals. (12th edition),
(by George B. Thomas, Maurice D. Weir, and Joel R. Hass)
International Edition, publisher: Pearson
Topics to be covered:
This course offers a thorough introduction to Calculus. Topics such as Limits, Differentiation, and Integration will be dealt with through formal definitions such as precise
definition of limits, continuity, derivatives, and integrals as limits of Riemann sums. We
also include formal proofs of important results such as the Limit Laws and Differentiation Rules. Integration techniques such as substitution and integration by parts will
be covered in detail together with applications such as volume and surface area of solids
of revolution, and arc length of parametrized curves. Polar coordinates will also be treated.
Homework:
Homework will be set weekly and reviewed during recitation classes.
Quizzes:
There will be a weekly quiz in the recitation class.
Exams:
There will be one written Midterm Exam and one written Final Exam given according to
the KAIST exam schedule.

Course grade:
The course grade will be assigned by considering your score from a total of 400 points
which consists of Midterm Exam (150 points), Final Exam (150 points), Quizzes (50
points), and Attendance (50 points). If you have to miss one of the exams, you should
have a documented reason. If you miss both exams, or miss more than 10 lectures you
automatically fail the course.

Weekly schedule:
The course will roughly cover the first 6 sections of the textbook plus polar coordinates.
The following schedule is tentative, and the timing might change somewhat as things
progress.
