MAC2311: Calculus I

This course includes topics in analytic geometry, limits, continuity, differentiation of algebraic and transcendental functions and their inverses, differentials, indeterminate forms and L’Hopital’s Rule, introduction to integration and the fundamental theorem of calculus, basic rules of integration and integration by substitution, and applications of definite integrals and derivatives.
Certain sections of this course may require the use of a graphing calculator.
