    This course provides an introduction to calculus with exposure to applications in science, business, and economics. The main concepts covered are limits, derivatives, and integrals. Derivatives of exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions are used to solve optimization, linear approximation, and related rates problems. Techniques of integration and applications are also introduced. Studying calculus will expose students to a variety of important mathematical ideas and help students develop their calculation, critical thinking and problem solving skills.
