Course Description

This is an accelerated course of one and several variable calculus. The first part of the course is devoted to those topics of one variable calculus not covered in pre-university math courses: applications of differential and integral calculus and the study of series. The second part deals with differential calculus of more than one variable and multiple integrals leaving out integration in vector fields.

The course is applications oriented and the presentation is not rigorous: some results are proven formally but others are only justified intuitively. The applications are drawn from the world of engineering and economics. Mathematical software will be used extensively as a tool to understand concepts and solve problems.


Learning Outcomes

By completion of the course the student will have achieved competency in the following skills:

  1. Use derivatives to compute differentials and approximate linearly functions of one variable.
  2. Apply derivatives to analyze the graph of a function.
  3. Apply differential calculus to solve optimization problems.
  4. Find anti derivatives and evaluate integrals.
  5. Apply integration to find the area of plane regions and volumes of revolution.
  6. Analyze convergence of improper integrals and evaluate them.
  7. Find limits of sequences and establish the order of growth.
  8. Analyze the convergence of series and sum geometric series.
  9. Find the power series expansion of functions.
  10. Represent two and three dimensional curves and find tangent lines.
  11. Calculate arc length and surface of revolution.
  12. Graph functions of several variables and understand contour lines.
  13. Compute partial derivatives of functions of several variables.
  14. Understand gradients and use them to find tangent planes and normal lines.
  15. Apply differential calculus of several variables to solve optimization problems.
  16. Apply the Lagrange method to solve max/min problems with constraints.
  17. Compute double and triple integrals and apply them to find volumes.
