Course DescriptionThis course covers the different applications of both differential and integral calculus to representative problems characteristic of the public and private economic sectors. Major topics covered in differential calculus include optimization; applications of the first and second derivatives that will find the optimized and inflection values of various functions; integral calculus, and procedures for finding either area under one curve or between two curves. Students are expected to apply the relevant techniques from differential and integral calculus in a wide variety of real-world contexts that are related to the problem-solving needs of public and private sector organizations. Upon completing this course, students should be able to take first derivatives of functions to find minimum and maximum values and take second derivatives to find inflection points of a function. Students are expected to understand the fundamental theorem of calculus and its implications for applied real-world problems.
