MATH225 Calculus (3 semester hours)

This course begins with a study of limits and continuity, which leads into the study of derivatives. Students will be taught to find the derivative of many functions using a variety of methods, including power rule, product rule, and chain rule. Students will then learn how to tackle several different applications of derivatives, including optimization, curve sketching, approximations, and related rates. Finally, students will be introduced to integration and how it can be used to determine areas. (Prerequisite: MATH111, MATH112, or an equivalent course)
