To give a thorough discussion of differentiation and integration, the basic processes of calculus, and their application in a wide variety of contexts. 2. To give you experience in writing well-organized and readable mathe- matical solutions, so that you will be able to communicate mathematical or technical ideas. 3. To give you experience in reading mathematics books (for example, the course text), so that you will be able to learn and use mathematics independently, whatever your field of endeavour.
