TEXTBOOK: Calculus for Business, Economics, and the Social and Life Sciences, 11th Edition. By Hoffman/Bradley/ Sobecki/Price. McGraw Hill Publishing.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: In Calculus we study functions. This is an introductory course to differential and integral calculus for business majors. I begin this course with a brief survey of functions, graphs, and domain. We discuss a lot about functions, their importance, and properties. We review constant functions, linear functions, quadratic functions, the general polynomial functions, piece-wise functions, rational functions, one-to-one functions, inverse functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, and of course, all relevant applications and construction of functions as mathematical models. The course continues with limits, differentiation, integration of above mentioned functions, with all relevant applications. It is a privilege to know all of these.
