Credit Hours

- See your home institution's prerequisite requirement.

- Open educational resources (OER)

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

Limits and Continuity :

- 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 for solving problems related to limits and continuity, and how to apply the technology.

Derivatives and Differentiation :

- 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.

Applications of the Derivative :

- 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.

Integration :

- Calculate anti-derivatives by using some basic rules.
- Evaluate anti-derivatives using the substitution technique.
- Define the definite integral.
- Evaluate a few definite integrals using the definition as a limit of Riemann sums.
- State the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
- Apply the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to evaluate definite integral.

- Unit 1: The Limit of a Function

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

- Attendance Verification 1%
- Participation & Discussions 5%
- Homework (x4) 10%
- Math Learning Project 4%
- Lesson Quizzes (x16) 10%
- Online Exams (x4) 40%
- Proctored Midterm Exam 15%
- Final Exam 15%

* The midterm and/or the final will be proctored.

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.
