Calculus A CourseRegistration Code: Math-calc
Credits: 0.5 Credit
This course introduces limits, differentiation, and integration of functions.
Students will find and evaluate finite and infinite limits graphically, numerically, and analytically. They will
find derivatives using a variety of methods including The Chain Rule and Implicit Differentiation. They will
use the First Derivative Test and The Second Derivative Test to analyze and sketch functions.
Subsequently, students will find antiderivatives using a variety of methods including substitution. They will
evaluate integrals using a variety of methods including numerical integration. They will understand and
apply Riemann sums, definite integrals, and The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. In particular, they will
differentiate and integrate logarithmic, exponential, and inverse trigonometric functions. They will solve
simple differential equations that can be solved by separation of variables and use them to solve applied
problems. They will use integration to determine the area between two curves, volume, and surface area.
Finally, they will apply integration to determine work, center of mass, and fluid force.
The use of a graphing calculator is considered an integral part of the course and students will use a
graphing calculator throughout this course.
