This course is designed to prepare students for undergraduate calculus courses. As a Math 31 equivalency, this course covers topics of calculus as well as essential precalculus topics, including: review of functions, review of algebra, limits and continuity, differentiation, applications of differentiation, integration, and applications of integration.
Course Learning Outcomes
By completion of this course, successful students will be able to:
- Develop a strategic overview of a mathematical problem and use problems solving skills to analyze the problem
- Use calculus to model some real world problems mathematically and interpret solutions as well as communicate results to a general audience
- Observe that there are several useful techniques to tackle a given mathematical problem: graphically, algebraically or numerically, then decide the most useful or most appropriate technique for solving the problem
- Determine if using technology tools and/or software is or is not appropriate to solve or analyze a given problem
- Recognize the vital role of calculus not only in Science and Engineering; but also in the wider world (Social, Health, Economics, Business...Etc.)
