MATH 135 - Applied Calculus
This introductory-level course focuses on mathematics useful for applied work in the natural and social sciences. There is a strong emphasis on developing scientific computing and mathematical modeling skills. The topics include differential calculus of functions of one and several variables, integration and differential equations, some introductory linear algebra, and estimation techniques. The course is an excellent preparation for Math 155, Introduction to Statistical Modeling. Case studies are drawn from varied areas, including biology, chemistry, economics, and physics. The course is designed both for students with no previous calculus, and students who have had one or two semesters of AP calculus (but who do not intend directly to take MATH 236 or MATH 237). Every semester.
