MATH& 148 - Business Calculus

5.0 Credits
Introduction to differential and integral calculus. For students in business or other programs requiring a brief course in calculus; not for math or science majors. Graphing calculator required (was MATH 150). Prerequisite: MATH 140  or MATH& 141  (was MATH 131) or equivalent with a grade of 2.0 or higher.

Course Objectives
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Find slope, average rate of change, and instantaneous rate of change from a graph, equation, or data. [REASON]
  2. Estimate and calculate slopes of secant and tangent lines. [REASON]
  3. Estimate and interpret rates of change. [REASON]
  4. Find the derivative from a numerical, graphical, and algebraic viewpoint. [REASON]
  5. Apply derivative rules to find rate-of-change formulas. [REASON]
  6. Find and graph derivative functions. [REASON]
  7. Apply derivative formulas to solve business application problems. [REASON]
  8. Find extreme points and solve optimization problems. [REASON]
  9. Find and interpret inflection points. [REASON]
  10. Approximate area and accumulated change by using sums of rectangles. [REASON]
  11. Find and interpret general and specific antiderivatives. [REASON]
  12. Use numerical and graphical approaches to estimate definite integrals. [REASON]
  13. Use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to compute definite integrals. [REASON]
