MATH 121 Calculus & Analytic Geometry 1

is the first course in the single variable calculus series intended for students going into areas of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. The course begins with a review of algebra and trigonometry followed by the introduction of limits and continuity. Derivatives of elementary, transcendental, and inverse functions are covered with their applications including L'Hopital's rule. The course ends with integrals of elementary functions. Because the order of the topics covered in the calculus series varies by institution, it is recommended that a student needing Calculus 1 and Calculus 2 complete both of them at the same institution. This course is applicable toward all certificates and degrees; group requirements include mathematics; areas of concentration include mathematics, engineering (credit hours 5.0, lecture hours 5.0).
