**COURSE OBJECTIVES:**
The course will introduce the central ideas of calculus:
the instantaneous rate of growth of a function,
and the average value of a function over an interval.
The course will show how these concepts can be applied
to solve problems in a variety of areas,
including business, economics, biology, and sociology.
The course will include problems on exponential growth and decay.

**CALCULUS on the WEB:**

- From the publisher: the book's
student page
- There are long lists of Calculus-related sites at these locations:
