Calculus for Business and Social Science (3). An elementary treatment of differential and integral calculus, with applications in social science and business. Except with departmental approval students may not receive credit for both MATH 211 and MATH 229. Prerequisite: MATH 110 or satisfactory performance on the Math Placement Test.
Course Objectives: The course will introduce the central ideas of calculus: the notion of limit, the instantaneous rate of change of a function as a limit of average rates of change, the integral of a function over an interval as a limit of finite sums, and the fundamental relationship between instantaneous rates of change and integrals. The course will show how these concepts can be applied to solve problems in a variety of areas, including business, economics, biology, and sociology.
