MATH& 151
Calculus I


Credits: 5
Clock Hours per Quarter: 50

AA Discipline: [Quantitative][Natural Sciences]

Lecture Hours:50


Description
MATH& 151 is the first in a sequence of four calculus courses for students who are planning to major in engineering, mathematics, or the sciences. Graphical analysis of concepts is emphasized through the use of technology. Prerequisite: Grade of C- or higher in MATH& 142, satisfactory placement score, or permission of the Mathematics Department. Formerly MATH 124, Calculus with Analytic Geometry I.

Intended Learning Outcomes
  • Analyze limits graphically, numerically, and analytically.
  • Use limits to determine continuity and calculate derivatives.
  • Interpret the derivative as a limit, slope, and rate of change.
  • Approximate derivatives numerically and graphically.
  • Determine derivatives of polynomial, rational, root, trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic, inverse trigonometric functions and products, quotients, and compositions thereof; find derivatives implicitly when necessary.
  • Demonstrate the relationships between the behaviors and graphs of functions and their limits, first derivatives, and second derivatives.
  • Construct models for contextual problems and apply calculus to solve them.
  • Access and use technology as needed.
  • Communicate mathematics using relevant vocabulary and notation.
