2021-2022 Curriculum Catalog

MATH 155 Calculus I

This is a course in differential calculus, which is the study of the instantaneous rate of change, or derivative, of a function. The course also introduces the concepts of limit and continuity, which are fundamental to many areas of mathematics and science. Students will learn how to interpret, compute, and apply derivatives of functions of one variable to real-life problems in science, economics, and geometry. An introduction to antiderivatives and differential equations is also included, if time permits.
