MAT* 230 - Applied Calculus with a Modeling Approach


3 credits
Presents 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 the problem context. The definition of integral, the fundamental theorem of calculus, some selected application of integration and some integration techniques are included. A TI-83+/TI-84+ graphing calculator is required and used throughout.
Prerequisite(s): A grade of C or better in MAT* 158  or higher and eligibility for ENG* 101 .
