MAT1300: Calculus

05/01/2023 to 04/30/2024 • Modified 06/08/2023

Course Description

This year-long course builds on principles of geometry, algebra, trigonometry, and other prior mathematics courses to take students into the world of limits, derivatives, and special computational techniques such as the power rule and differentiation. It is an important prerequisite for many educational programs in engineering and science. The student will also explore topics related to sequences, series, and the fundamental theorem of calculus as well as differential equations. Students will have access to engaging multimedia video lectures, notes pages for each lesson summarizing the video content, practice problems, and assessments. All video lessons include a transcript and closed captioning in English and Spanish.
