In this course the student will be expected to gain computational skill with
calculus concepts and do a significant amount of problem solving. The clear
and careful exposition of word problems will be quite important. The honors student
in this class will be expected to tackle and solve somewhat more
challenging problems than appear in the non-honors equivalent, MATH 2200.
1. Overview of calculus.
2. The limit concept, properties, continuity.
3. The derivative: the derivative, rules, derivatives of
and exponential functions.
4. Applications of the derivative: maximum/minimum problems,
the derivative as best linear approximation.
5. Mean Value Theorem and applications, interpretation of first
derivatives, curve sketching, L'Hôpital's Rule.
6. The integral, area under curves, Fundamental Theorem of
