The topics for this course include Limits, Derivatives, and Integrals (both Definite and Indefinite). We will explore tools and techniques for applying these concepts, such as the Derivatives of Products and Quotients, and the Chain Rule. We will also form connections with the physical world, both for understanding and also for application. We'll use computers and apps where appropriate. PLEASE NOTE: This course is under revision: textbook and computer software will be upgraded, with information available by late April. Contact instructor if more information is needed before then.
