MATH 103(F,S) Calculus I (Q)

Calculus permits the computation of velocities and other instantaneous rates of change by a limiting process called differentiation. The same process also solves "max-min" problems: how to maximize profit or minimize pollution. A second limiting process, called integration, permits the computation of areas and accumulations of income or medicines. The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus provides a useful and surprising link between the two processes. Subtopics include trigonometry, exponential growth, and logarithms. This is an introductory course for students who have not seen calculus before. Students who have previously taken a calculus course may not enroll in MATH 103 without the permission of instructor. Format: lecture. Evaluation will be based primarily on homework, quizzes, and/or exams. Prerequisites: Mathematics 101 (or demonstrated proficiency on a diagnostic test; see Mathematics 101). No enrollment limit (expected: 50-60).
