A one-semester calculus course for non-science majors. Topics include limits, continuity, rates of change, differentiation and integration techniques and applications, calculus of the logarithmic and exponential functions and partial derivatives.
Course Learning Outcomes
The student will:
Evaluate limits functions from their graphs and/or equations.
Determine derivative for selected functions and solve applications using these results.
Integrate selected functions and solve applications using these results.
Apply the concepts of limits, derivatives, and integrals to solve problems involving functions unique to business applications.
