Learning Outcome

This course is designed for students majoring in the mathematical and physical sciences, engineering, or mathematics education and for students minoring in mathematics or mathematics education. Calculus is the foundation for most of the mathematics studied at the university level. The mastery of calculus requires well-developed skills, clear conceptual understanding, and the ability to model phenomena in a variety of settings. Calculus 1 develops the concepts of limit, derivative, and integral, and is fundamental for many fields of mathematics. This course contributes to all the expected learning outcomes of the Mathematics BS. For more detailed information, visit the Math 112 Wiki page.
