Course Objectives: The course will introduce the central ideas of calculus: the notion of limit, the instantaneous rate of change of a function as a limit of average rates of change, the integral of a function over an interval as a limit of finite sums, and the fundamental relationship between instantaneous rates of change and integrals. The course will show how these concepts can be applied to solve problems in a variety of areas, including business, economics, biology, and sociology.
