Business Calculus

Credits: 5 
Clock Hours per Quarter: 50
Lecture Hours:50

Description
MATH& 148 is an introduction to calculus as applied to business and economics as well as the behavioral, social, and life sciences. Topics include limits, derivatives, and integrals and their applications. Prerequisite: Grade of C or higher in MATH& 141, satisfactory placement, or permission of the Mathematics Department. Formerly MATH 121, Survey of Calculus. 
Intended Learning Outcomes
Analyze limits graphically, numerically, and analytically and use limits to determine continuity and calculate derivatives.
Approximate derivatives numerically and graphically and interpret the derivative as a limit, slope, and rate of change.
Determine derivatives of polynomial, rational, root, exponential, and logarithmic 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.
Approximate definite integrals with left, right, and midpoint Riemann sums and interpret the definite integral in relation to the limit of Riemann sums, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, net change, and area under a curve.
Evaluate integrals using antiderivatives of polynomial, rational, root, exponential, and logarithmic functions and methods of integration including substitution and integration by parts.
Construct models for contextual problems and apply calculus to solve them.
Access and use technology as needed.
Communicate mathematics using relevant vocabulary and notation.
