Objective

Upon completion of the course, students will be able to define the derivative and integral for one-variable functions. They will be competent in derivating and integrating the more common mathematical functions and calculating definite integrals and applying their knowledge to common applications. Students will also be capable of calculation tools to solve problems in one-variable differential and integral calculus. They will also apply this knowledge in their Professional Studies and working world.
