This course enhances students? skills gained from manipulating algebraic functions and equations and introduces the basic concepts of differential calculus. It also introduces basic data management as it relates to the applications of counting techniques and probability and statistics. Students will broaden their understanding of the mathematics associated with rates of change; and develop facility with the concepts and skills of differential calculus as applied to polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions. Students will use techniques gained from these skills to solve various applications.
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:
1. Demonstrate an understanding of limits and continuity and rates of change;
2. Demonstrate an understanding of average rates of change and instantaneous rate of change;
3. Demonstrate an understanding of the definition of derivative;
4. Demonstrate an understanding of the first-principle definition of derivative;
5. Apply power rule, product rule, quotient rule and chain rule to various functions;
6. Demonstrate an understanding of implicit derivative;
7. Apply the differential calculus to related rates, curve sketching and optimization problems;
8. Analyze data and compute mean, mode, median, standard deviation;
9. Apply the basic laws of probability and the binomial probability;
10. Apply counting principle to binomial probability;
11. Demonstrate an understanding of probability distribution, random variable and expected values;
12. Demonstrate an understanding of the normal distribution.
