MATH 109 - Calculus with Applications in Business and Social Science


Prerequisite, MATH 100  or equivalent. In this course, students study the mathematical theory of continuous change with an 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  may not also receive credit for MATH 115 . Some sections of this course may be offered as hybrid courses or online only. Letter grade with Pass/No Pass option. (Offered every semester.) 3 credits
