MTH 1290

Calculus I

This course is the calculus of one variable, beginning with an intuitive study of limits and a geometric interpretation of the derivative. Topics include differentiation of functions and the application of the derivative to graphing functions, approximating functions, solving max/min problems and related rate problems, anti-differentiation and its link to the signed area under a curve, the fundamental theorem of calculus and applications of the definite integral.

MTH 1286

Applied Calculus II

A continuation of the study of calculus as applied to science, business, technology and social science. The integral will be further studied, including applications of area, volume, accumulation functions, curvilinear motion, and solutions to some simple differential equations and other applications chosen from a variety of disciplines. Students will examine sequences and series involving convergence and divergence, power series and Taylor polynomials and series.
