Description of Course Content

 

     This course provides an overview of calculus with an emphasis toward business applications.  Both differential and integral calculus will be stressed. Students will be taught:

 

Chapter 1-Differentiation

Limits, limits and asymptotes, problem solving/rates of change, the derivative, derivatives of constants, powers, and sums, derivatives of products and quotients, the chain rule

 

Chapter 2-Applications of Differentiation

Differential and linear approximations, marginal analysis, measuring rates and errors, implicit differentiation and related rates, first derivatives and graphs, second derivatives and graphs, graphical analysis and curve sketching, optimizing functions on a closed interval, the second derivative test and optimization

 

 

Chapter 3-Exponential and Logarithmic Functions

Derivatives of log functions, derivatives of exponential functions

 

Chapter 4-Integration

The indefinite integral, area and the definite integral, fundamental theorem of calculus, problem solving/integral calculus and total accumulation

 

Rating

 

     There will be 4 tests @ 100 points each and a comprehensive Final @ 150 points. The total possible points earnable will be 550.  Grades will be assigned on a point scale format:

A = 495-550

B = 440-494

C = 385-439

D = 330-384

F = 0-329
