Prerequisites

Calculus I and II

Calculus is the mathematical study of change. This course is designed for students interested in further studies in science, mathematics, engineering, technology and economics.

In the third quarter of this thematically-integrated course, students will cover a full year of calculus through small-group discussions, interactive lectures, and hands-on laboratory investigations. We will learn about limits, rate of change, differentiation and its rules, optimization, integration and its applications (area under the curve, volumes of revolution, arc length and surfaces), methods of integration, differential equations and multi-variable calculus. We will take a numerical, algebraic and graphical approach to the main concepts of calculus. This class will cover many of the traditional topics of a first-year calculus sequence.
