Course Description
This course is intended to provide students with a fundamental account of the basic results and theorems of calculus. Topics include: function, limit, continuity; rules of differentiation, maxima, minima, rate of change, applications; basic methods of integration and area; ordinary differential equation; and probabilities.
Class Rules: 1. Full arguments must be given in all quizzes and exams. Write in complete sentences. Correct answers without proper justification will not be credited. Partial credits will be given for correct intermediate steps. No calculators in exams or quizzes. All numbers should be expressed in an exact way: E.g. write 1/3 instead of 0.333...; \pi instead of 3.14159...
2. With the advance approval of both tutorial TAs (Mr. Chan & Mr. Dai), you may attend the other tutorial section instead of your registered one in case of a time conflict. Missed quizzes with adequate justification (certificate from a doctor) can be excused, but no makeup quizzes will be given.
3. Homeworks will be posted weekly on WeBWorK by Wednesdays; due (usually) by Wednesday the following week. A tutorial session consists of 30 minutes of questions and answers, doing examples, followed by a 15 minutes quiz.

Honesty in Academic Work
The Chinese University of Hong Kong places very high importance on honesty in academic work submitted by students, and adopts a policy of zero tolerance on cheating and plagiarism. Any related offence will lead to disciplinary action including termination of studies at the University. Although cases of cheating or plagiarism are rare at the University, everyone should make himself / herself familiar with the content of the following website:
http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/policy/academichonesty/and thereby help avoid any practice that would not be acceptable.
