Introduction to Calculus

Course Code: CALC 103

Academic Year: 2023-2024

The primary goal of this course is to introduce students to efficient computational tools for solving applied engineering problems. This introductory course starts with the topic of limits and proceeds with developing the notion of the derivative. Further topics covered include derivatives and basic integrals of algebraic, trigonometric, logarithmic and exponential functions that are commonly used in modelling applications. Emphasis is placed on applications to particle motion, curve sketching, optimization, areas bounded by curves, net amount of change and voltage-current-charge connection in circuits.
