Student Learning Outcomes:
Untitled document
1.   State and apply basic definitions, properties, and theorems of first semester calculus.
2.   Calculate limits, derivatives, definite integrals, and indefinite integrals of algebraic and transcendental functions.
3.   Model and solve application problems using derivatives and integrals of algebraic and transcendental functions.

Objectives: Untitled document
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
1.  Calculate limits and use limit notation.
2.  Determine continuity of a function at a real value.
3.  Determine derivatives of polynomial, rational, algebraic, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions.
4.  Use techniques of differentiation, including product, quotient, and chain rules; determine derivatives implicitly and determine derivatives of inverse functions.
5.  Apply derivatives to graphing, optimization, and science problems.
6.  Determine antiderivatives of polynomial, rational, algebraic, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions.
7.  Use limits of Riemann sums to evaluate definite integrals to find areas.
8.  Evaluate definite integrals using the fundamental theorem of calculus.
9.  Use Trapezoidal and Simpson's Rules to approximate definite integrals.
10. Apply definite integration to compute area, volumes, and arc length, and to solve problems in science and related fields.
11. Evaluate integrals with the use of tables or a computer algebra system.
