## Course Description

Calculus is the mathematics of change and Calculus I is the first course in a three course sequence of Calculus. This course provides the essential foundation for all higher level mathematics courses. For students not requiring additional math courses, MATH 211 provides important exposure to the concepts of the derivative and the integral, both important to solving real-world problems.

In Math 211 course we will introduce limits, derivatives, integrals and their applications. Derivatives are used to determine the rate of change of functions, to solve optimization problems (maximum and minimum values of a function), to sketch curves. Applications of Integrals include area and volume problems. We will also consider inverse functions and derivatives of inverse functions

## What to Expect in this Course

In Math 211 we will cover the fundamental concepts of single variable calculus and their applications. Topics in this course are functions and graphing, limits and continuity, derivatives, applications of derivatives, integrals, applications of integrals, integration by substitution. We will consider “The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus”, that establishes a connection between differential calculus and integral calculus. It gives the precise inverse relationship between the derivative and the integral.

## Types of Assessments

Your knowledge will be assessed on the base of four Exams, homework assignments, weekly homework assignments (quizzes), and Final Exam. All exams will be in person (in Campus).
You will need to have access to Canvas. Through Canvas, you will be able to upload/submit assignments.
