MATH 2214 - Calculus I*

4 Credits
Calculus I includes the study of limits and continuity; the derivative; differentiation rules for transcendental functions including exponential, logarithmic, inverse trigonometric, and hyperbolic functions; implicit and logarithmic differentiation; applications of differentiation to analytic geometry, rates of changes, and optimization; the integral; integration techniques including the substitution rule.
