This is the first course of a three-part Calculus sequence to prepare students for advanced work in mathematical fields including, but not limited to the engineering, computer science and economics fields. It introduces the student to the basic concepts and techniques of differential calculus. Topics include a pre-Calculus review (functions, graphing), limits, derivatives, computations (Power rule, Product Rule, Quotient Rule and Chain Rule), special functions (trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic), implicit differentiation, applications of differentiation (approximations, optimization and related rates), and curve sketching. It is highly recommended that the student has taken MATH 200 Analytical Geometry or a similar course. (Prerequisite: MATH111)
