This course is designed to provide you with a basic knowledge of calculus. Topics covered include the concepts of a limit, continuity, the derivative, and the integral as well as practical applications of these concepts. Topics will be approached from numerical, graphical, and analytical standpoints.

Course Learning Outcomes
1.  Demonstrate the concepts of limits and continuity; find the limit (if it exists) of functions by using symbolic, graphical and numeric methods.

2.  Find derivatives using the derivative definition and use derivative formulas for problems with powers, products, quotients, trig functions, logs and exponentials.

3.  Apply derivative solution methods to solve a variety of types of problems.

4.  Integrate polynomial, trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic problems, including the difference of functions and integration by parts, and demonstrate the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
