MATH 1070 - Survey of Calculus

Credits: 4
Hours/Week: Lecture NoneLab None
Course Description: This course is designed for those who need only an introduction to calculus. Topics include limits and continuity, derivatives, differentials, indefinite integrals, definite integrals, exponential and logarithmic functions, techniques of integration, applications of differential and integral calculus, integral tables, functions of two variables, partial derivatives, maxima and minima, and applied problems. A graphing calculator is required. Instruction will be provided in the use of the TI-83/TI-84 calculator. Students planning to take more than one semester of calculus should begin with MATH 1081 . Offered S.
