This course is an introduction to the mathematics of rates of change. Students explore limits, investigate the concept of the derivative, master differentiation techniques, apply the first and second derivatives to the graphing of functions, related rates problems, and maxima and minima problems, and glimpse an introduction to integration. Graphing calculators, DERIVE, and MAPLE may be used extensively to explore and reinforce the material.Prerequisite: MAT 1500 Precalculus; or both MAT 1510 Precalculus I: Algebraic Functions and MAT 1520 Precalculus II: Transcendental Functions; or sufficient score on the math placement exam.General Education: Quantitative Reasoning
