MT 210 Overview
Calculus is a transition course from lower-division courses to upper-division mathematics and computer science courses. Students will extend their experience with functions as they study the fundamental concepts of calculus: limits, difference quotients and the derivative. Students will review and extend their knowledge of trigonometry and basic analytic geometry. Important objectives of the calculus sequence are to develop and strengthen the students' problem-solving skills and to teach them to read, write, speak and think in the language of mathematics. In particular, students will learn how to apply the tools of calculus to a variety of problem situations. Prerequisite: Placement results or strong background in algebra and some familiarity with trigonometry (high school trigonometry and advanced algebra or at least a C in MT 196).
