We study calculus because it provides a useful language and a powerful toolkit for describing and modeling the world around us. This course will develop practical problem solving skills, enhanced by intuitive geometric understand- ing. Its main topics include limits, continuity, derivatives, maxima and minima, trigonometric, logarithmic and exponential functions, integration, calculating areas and volumes, and techniques of integration.
