MATH& 151 - Calculus I

5 CR

Introduces the concepts of limits, derivatives, and integrals. Topics include techniques and applications of derivatives of algebraic and transcendental functions. Students begin working with antiderivatives. Either MATH& 151 or MATH 148  may be taken for credit, not both. Note: Fulfills the quantitative or symbolic reasoning course requirement at BC.

Prerequisite(s): Placement by assessment or MATH 142  with a C- or better, or Advanced Placement score of 2 or higher on AB or BC exam.

Course Outcomes
  • Calculate limits of functions using graphs, numerical data, and analytically.
  • Define the derivative of a function and explain what that means in graphical and applied contexts.
  • Use the general differentiation rules to calculate derivatives of polynomial, rational and common transcendental functions and combinations of those functions.
  • Apply the ideas and techniques of derivatives to solve problems of maximum/minimum and rates of change.
  • Use derivatives to describe the shapes of graphs of functions.
