Course Description

This course has a co-enrollment requirement with MATH2250.

This 1-credit hour course is a co-enrollment course for MATH2250: Calculus I for Science and Engineering, where students will develop skills to be successful active learners in Calculus I for Science and Engineering. Students will learn to engage peers and instructors; embrace collaborative learning and study groups; reflect on their progress and strategies; and adapt their learning based on self-reflection and performance results.

Course Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Calculate and interpret basic trends, rate, and accumulation using the limit, the derivative, and the integral, respectively.
  • Use a function’s graph to:
    • Identify increasing / decreasing behavior and critical numbers of the first or second derivative of the function
    • Identify extrema
    • Determine limits
    • Identify points of continuity/discontinuity
    • Identify asymptotes
    • Identify points where function is/is not differentiable
  • Use information (a formula or table and/or first or second derivative, etc.) about a function to predict:
    • Behavior of the function and/or its first or second derivative
    • Extrema
    • Limits
    • Points of continuity/discontinuity
    • Asymptotes
    • Identify points where function is/is not differentiable
    • Apply calculus to solve an application problem by selecting an appropriate model, identifying an appropriate calculus technique, using the calculus technique on the model to solve the problem, and interpreting the solution in context.
