An elementary treatment of topics from differential and integral calculus,
with applications in social science and business.
Calculus and its Applications,
by Bittinger (2000)
The course will introduce the central ideas of calculus:
the instantaneous rate of growth of a function,
and the average value of a function over an interval.
The course will show how these concepts can be applied
to solve problems in a variety of areas,
including business, economics, biology, and sociology.
The course will include problems on exponential growth and decay.
