4. Course Description:

This is a first course in calculus, covering limits, differentiation and integration. The course begins with a brief review of the concept, properties, and graph of a function, which students are expected to have mastered previously. The definition of a limit is introduced, and processes for determining limits are developed. The derivative of a function is defined and applied to algebraic and trigonometric functions. Several applications of differentiation are covered, including optimization and related rates. Anti-differentiation and elementary differential equations are introduced, and then students see the definite integral as a limit of a Riemann sum and as an antiderivative via the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Finally, the course explores differentiation and integration of exponential and logarithmic functions.
