Course Description:
This is an introductory course in one-variable calculus. Topics include functions and graphs, limits of functions and continuity, derivatives and their applications, basic indefinite and definite integrals.
Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:
1. develop basic computational skills in calculus;
2. express quantitative relationships using the language of functions;
3. apply the concepts and methods of calculus in modeling and problem solving.
