MAT-231 Calculus I

Calculus I is an intensive, higher-level course in mathematics that builds on courses like precalculus. The course aims at serving the needs of a wide student audience, including students in engineering, mathematics, the physical and life sciences, and economics. It is constructed around multiple focal points with the intention of helping students become creative and efficient problem solvers. The course uses technology as a means of discovery for numerical, graphical, and analytical solutions to problems. It also emphasizes communication skills and requires students to interpret, describe, discuss, justify, and conjecture as they search for solutions to problems. Real-life applications provide links with students' everyday life. Topics covered include the Cartesian plane, limits and continuity, problems of tangents, velocity and instantaneous rates of change, rules for differentiation, implicit differentiation, maxima and minima theory, antiderivatives and the indefinite integral, exponential and logarithmic functions, and the area between curves.

Advisory: It is advisable to have knowledge in a course equivalent to MAT-129: Precalculus with a grade of C or better to succeed in this course. Students are responsible for making sure that they have the necessary knowledge.
