COURSE: MATH 211, Calculus for Business and Social Science (3). An elementary treatment of topics from differential and integral calculus, with applications in social science and business.

TEXT: Calculus and its Applications, 7th Edition, by Bittinger (2000)

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.
