In addition to learning the customary computational skills in calculus,
the student will be exposed to mathematics as mathematicians view it.
Students will learn to write proofs and think more rigorously about
mathematics, and will come to grips with challenging concepts and problems.
In that regard, this course is an excellent preparation for students considering
a career in law, medicine, or the sciences.
1. Numbers, inequalities, rigorous review of algebra, and proofs by induction.
2. Functions and their graphs.
3. Limits, including delta-epsilon definition and many concrete examples.
4. Continuity and the three hard theorems.
5. Differentiation: the rules and applications to related rates problems and
6. The theory of differentiation: local and global behavior, Mean Value
Theorem, Cauchy Mean Value Theorem and L'Hopital's Rule; the second
derivative and convexity; curve sketching.
7. Inverse functions; review of inverse trigonometric functions.
8. Brief introduction to antidifferentiation.
