The study of calculus is the study of change. Since change is all around us, calculus is one of the most applied topics in mathematics. In this course, we will use calculus methods to investigate many topics in economics, physical and biological sciences and social science fields. After a brief pre-calculus review, we will cover derivatives and rates of change, followed by a discussion of integration. Real world applications will be emphasized to allow us to see the use of calculus methods to solve examples from business, management, social science, etc. From these two basic concepts of differentiation and integration, calculus techniques can be applied to solve advanced problems in many fields.
