II. OBJECTIVES/LEARNING OUTCOMES:
Upon satis factory completion of this course, students
should be able to perform the following tasks:
•Identify and graph linear , quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, and
•Find the limit of a function and determine its continuity.
•Find the derivative and integral of a function.
•Sketch the graph of a curve .
•Use the derivative and integral to solve applications .
•Use the integral to determine area between curves.
III. COURSE TOPIC OUTLINE/PURPOSE:
1. Linear Functions
2. Non‐Linear Functions
3. The Derivative
4. Calculating the Derivative
5. Graphs and the Derivative
COURSE POLICIES/PROCEDURES: •The lecture method is used to explain new materials and answer questions
•Any remaining class time is used for students to work on assignments in groups
close supervision of instructor.
