An elementary course introducing the student to the basic concepts of calculus: functions, limits, derivatives, and integrals. Emphasis is placed on problem solving.
Objectives of the course
- demonstrate the ability to analyze and solve mathematical exercises in introductory calculus with a style and precision appropriate to the first-year level of university;
- appreciate the enormous influence and contributions of calculus to the development of the natural and social sciences over the last 200 years;
- demonstrate a modest familiarity with the applications of a computer algebra system to solving problems and displaying results in calculus.
