Course Description
:
Math 231 is designed to provide a detailed introduction to the fundamental ideas of calculus. It does not assume any prior
calculus knowledge, but the student is expected to be proficient working with functions and their graphs as well as
manipulating variable expressions and solving equations using algebra and trigonometry.
Topics treated are limits,
derivatives and their applications, and integration of functions of one variable.
Course Objectives:
•
Calculate limits of functions; explain the relationship between a function and its graph and its limit at a point.
•
Define a derivative using limits and explain the geometric significance; evaluate derivatives of a given function.
•
Apply the concepts of limits and derivatives to real world problems and sketching curves.
•
Evaluate basic integrals using anti-derivatives and u-substitution; recognize the geometric significance of an integral.
•
Use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to relate derivatives and integrals.
Prerequisites:
Only students who scored 600 or better on the SAT 2 Math Level 2 test, scored 29 or higher on the ACT math subject test,
scored a 2 on the AP Calculus AB or BC exam, or passed Math 130 with a C- or higher may register for 231.
Students may
not receive credit for both MATH 231 and MATH 241.
Required Materials:
Our textbook is
Calculus
,
Early Transcendentals
, 3
rd
edition, by Briggs, Cochran, and Gillett.
Access to an e-book is
included with MyLab Math.
It is your choice whether you have a physical book in addition to the e-book.
Access to MyLab Math is required.
Some in-class questions and a portion of the regular homework assignments will be
turned in and graded through the online MyLab Math system.
If MyLabMath did not come with your textbook, you need to
purchase access separately.
A laptop, tablet, or smart phone should be brought to each class meeting for use with MyLab Math questions.
