MATH 109 - Calculus with Applications in Business and Social Science


Prerequisite, MATH 99 , or equivalent. In this course, students study the mathematical theory of continuous change with emphasis on using the theory to analyze real world phenomena. The key ideas have to do with how quantities (cost for example) relate to their rate of change (marginal cost,). Study includes limits, theory and interpretation of differentiation and integration, and the key linking idea: The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Applications include marginal analysis, optimization, modeling by differential equations. Students who take MATH 109 or MATH 110  or MATH 111  may not also receive credit for MATH 115 . (Offered every semester.) 3 credits
