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 (this includes partial derivatives and derivatives of higher order); maxima and minima of functions; elementary techniques of integration including substitution and integration by parts; and applications (business and social science applications are stressed throughout the course). A graphing calculator is required for this course (instruction will be based on a TI-83+). 4 credit hours
