Course Description: Calculus is a transition course to upper-division mathematics and computer science courses. Students will extend their experience with functions as they study the fundamental concepts of calculus: limiting behaviors, difference quotients and the derivative, Riemann sums and the definite integral, anti-derivatives and indefinite integrals, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Students review and extend their knowledge of trigonometry and basic analytic geometry. Important objectives of the calculus sequence are to develop and strengthen the students’ problem -solving skills and to teach them to read, write, speak, and think in the language of mathematics. In particular, students learn how to apply the tools of calculus to a variety of problem situations. Calculus is an intense course and you will be required to spend some time at home reviewing material on your own. Please make use of KhanAcademy.org, Calculus-Help.com, and other online resources to help in your studies. You should expect to spend at least 30-45minutes every evening reviewing material you learned in class that day. Students are encouraged to form study groups to work together outside of the classroom.
