MAT* 230: Applied Calculus with a Modeling Approach

3 Credits
(Formerly MATH 121)
A course in selected topics from calculus with applications in business, economics, and social science. Students will learn the fundamental concepts of calculus and how to apply them to real-life problems. A major goal is to develop conceptual understanding (rather than algebraic manipulation) through the use of graphing calculators and through the consideration of graphical, numerical and algebraic perspectives. The major conceptual focus is on rates of change and their interpretations within a problem context. The definition of the integral, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, some selected applications of integration and some integration techniques are included. A TI-83+ graphing calculator is required and used throughout. Class: 3 hours per week.
Prerequisites: “C” or better in MAT* 158  and eligibility for ENG* 101  .
Offered: Fall, Spring
