PREREQUISITE:
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, piecewise functions, rational functions,
onetoone 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.
