Upon successful completion of this course, students will:

• Apply calculus to solve business, economics, and social sciences problems.
• Apply appropriate differentiation techniques to obtain derivatives of various functions, including logarithmic and exponential functions.
• Solve application problems involving implicit differentiation and related rates.
• Solve optimization problems with emphasis on business and social sciences applications.
• Determine appropriate technique(s) of integration.
• Integrate functions using the method of integration by parts or substitution, as appropriate.
• Solve business, economics, and social sciences applications problems using integration techniques.
[Additional course curriculum details: This course is the basic study of limits and continuity, differentiation, optimization and graphing, and integration of elementary functions, with emphasis on applications in business, economics, and social sciences. This course is not a substitute for MATH 2313 or 2413, Calculus I.]
