Spring 2021 catalog is now live!
To determine if a course is remote, hybrid, or in-person use the catalog search tool to narrow results. Otherwise, when browsing courses, the section indicates teaching mode:
R = Remote
H = Hybrid
0 = In-person
Teaching modes (remote, hybrid, in-person) are subject to change at any point. Please pay close attention when registering. Depending on the timing of a teaching mode change, faculty also may be in contact with students.
Calculus permits the computation of velocities and other instantaneous rates of change by a limiting process called differentiation. The same process also solves “max-min” problems: how to maximize profit or minimize pollution. A second limiting process, called integration, permits the computation of areas and accumulations of income or medicines. The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus provides a useful and surprising link between the two processes. Subtopics include trigonometry, exponential growth, and logarithms.
Grading: yes pass/fail option,
yes fifth course option
Weekly homework and quizzes, 2 exams during the semester, and one final
MATH 102 (or demonstrated proficiency on a diagnostic test); this is an introductory course for students who have not seen calculus before
students who have previously taken a calculus course may not enroll in MATH 130 without the permission of instructor
This a calculus course.
