A first course in differential and integral calculus of a single variable: functions; limits and continuity; techniques and applications of differentiation and integration; Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Primarily for Science, Technology, Engineering & Math Majors.
Precalculus, or college algebra and trigonometry, or equivalent.
 Definition and computation of limits using numerical, graphical, and algebraic approaches
 Continuity and differentiability of functions
 Derivative as a limit
 Interpretation of the derivative as: slope of tangent line, a rate of change
 Differentiation formulas: constants, power rule, product rule, quotient rule and chain rule
 Derivatives of trigonometric functions
 Implicit differentiation with applications, and differentiation of inverse functions
 Higherorder derivatives
 Graphing functions using first and second derivatives, concavity and asymptotes
 Maximum and minimum values, and optimization
 Mean Value Theorem
 Antiderivatives and indefinite integrals
 Applications of integration to areas and volumes
 Definite integral; Riemann sum
 Properties of the integral
 Fundamental Theorem of Calculus
 Integration by substitution
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
 Compute the limit of a function at a real number;
 Determine if a function is continuous at a real number;
 Find the derivative of a function as a limit;
 Find the equation of a tangent line to a function;
 Compute derivatives using differentiation formulas;
 Use differentiation to solve applications such as related rate problems and optimization problems;
 Use implicit differentiation;
 Graph functions using methods of calculus;
 Evaluate a definite integral as a limit;
 Evaluate integrals using the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus; and
 Use the definite integral to find areas and volumes
Tests, examinations, homework or projects where students demonstrate their mastery of the learning objectives and their ability to devise, organize and present complete solutions to problems.
A college level textbook designed for science, technology, engineering and math majors, and supporting the learning objectives of this course.
