**After completing this course, you will be able to:**

- Calculate and evaluate limits and represent these concepts graphically, algebraically, numerically and in words.
- Apply knowledge of limits and continuity to analyze and solve real-world problems.
- Determine when the use of technology is appropriate in solving problems related to limits and continuity, and how to apply the technology.
- Explain the definition of derivative and how it is related to tangent lines and rates of change, and to compute derivatives from the limit definition.
- Compute derivatives using all of the standard rules, displaying in particular a strong mastery of the Chain Rule.
- Compute derivatives of trigonometric functions and compute closely related trigonometric limits.
- Explain the concept of an implicitly defined function, and use the technique of implicit differentiation to differentiate functions that are defined implicitly.
- Model and solve related rates problems.
- Solve problems related to rates of change.
- Identify and describe properties of functions and their graphs.
- Apply the properties of functions and their graphs to real life problem situations.

**Your final grade will be based on the following breakdown. Please note that each instructor may choose to make modifications.**

- Participation/Discussions – 5%
- Online Quizzes – 15%
- Online Exams (4) – 40%
- Proctored Midterm Exam – 20%
- Proctored Final Exam – 20%

You will need access to one of the following graphing calculators to complete the activities in MATH 1501: TI-83 or TI-84 with computer cable or TI-83 Plus or TI-84 Plus.

It is also important to note that you will be required to submit your worked examples -hand written or produced in Word- for the Online Exams. For that reason, you must have access to some type of recording device to capture and submit your work:

- Microsoft Word to demonstrate your work in a text format
*or* - Digital camera, phone camera, scanner or webcam to submit a photo copy of your hand-written work.
