The learning objective of this course is to introduce the fundamental ideas of the differential calculus of

functions of one variable, as indicated in the list of topics.

student should be able to:

    • Compute limits and derivatives of algebraic, trigonometric, and piece-wise defined functions,
    • Compute definite and indefinite integrals of algebraic and trigonometric functions using formulas and substitution,
    • Use the derivative of a function to determine the properties of the graph of the function and use the graph of a function to estimate its derivative,
    • Solve problems in a range of mathematical applications using the derivative or the integral,
    • Apply the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus,
    • Determine the continuity and differentiability of a function at a point and on a set, and
    • Carry out computations with ease and solve problems related to the list of topics
