MATH 151: Calculus for Business & Social Science
Prerequisite: Completion of Math 106 or assessment. Note, a graphing calculator is required for this course (instruction will be based on a TI-83+). This calculus course is designed specifically for students in business and the social sciences and does not count toward a major or minor in mathematics. It emphasizes applications of the basic concepts of calculus rather than proofs. Topics include limits; techniques of differentiation applied to polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions; partial derivatives and applications; maxima and minima of functions; and elementary techniques of integration including substitution, integration by parts and multivariate integration. Business and social science applications are stressed throughout the course. 4 HRS
