Calculus 1

MTH 2100 3 Semester Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Semester
Description Focuses primarily on differential calculus. Using mathematical models, offers students an opportunity to make predictions and inferences in a variety of applications that relate to the fields of engineering, economics, biology, etc. For example, students can use differential calculus to determine what is the most cost-effective speed to drive a car, using the least amount of fuel. These types of problems, called optimization problems, require an understanding of the derivative as a rate of change. The course focuses on how to apply rules and properties of derivatives to model and solve application problems in science, engineering, and technology. As a prelude to MTH 2105, at the end of the semester, the concept of the integral is introduced as a limit of sums and antidifferentiation.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
