This course is an introductory four-credit course in trigonometry and applied calculus. Students in this course will develop the mathematical skills associated with the core topics of derivatives and integration, and learn to apply these skills within technology subjects, finance, and the life and social sciences. In a unified fashion, the course makes the case for using functions to model phenomena in science and technology and simultaneously teaches methods to analyze these functions in a meaningful way. Applications of calculus also abound in the social sciences and economics. For these reasons, the course will count for the Quantitative Reasoning requirement in the General Education program Education for Participation in the Global Community.
