Note that once you use your MML code then NWACC has no way of acquiring a refund for you. This includes if you
get purged for nonpayment of fees or for not satisfying the prerequisites of the course
. I recommend using MyMathLab
for this course, but it is completely optional and will not be calculated into your grade.
Course Description
The first course in a threesemester sequence designed to provide comprehensive coverage of differential and integral calculus.
Topics include limits and continuity, differentiation with applications, integration with applications, and basic differential equations.
Course Objectives
Upon successful completion of this course students should exhibit mastery of certain knowledge and basic skills.
These skills will
include, but not be limited to:
1)
Evaluation of algebraic and trigonometric limits using appropriate limit laws.
2)
Evaluation of derivatives for algebraic, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, hyperbolic, exponential and logarithmic functions
and combinations thereof.
3)
Computation of definite and indefinite integrals including the 19 basic integral forms and usubstitution.
4)
Graphing by hand using calculus techniques to find key points such as extreme values and points of inflection.
5)
Using knowledge of derivatives to solve various types of application problems including related rate and optimization
problems.
6)
Applications of both integration and differential equations.
