Calculus is the mathematics of change, of calculating problems that are continually evolving. This is possible by breaking such problems into infinitesimal steps, solving each of those steps, and adding all the results. Rather than doing each step individually, calculus allows these computations to be done simultaneously. There are two primary branches of calculus: differential calculus (differentiation) and integral calculus (integration). Therefore, students are exposes to limits and continuity, differentiation, application of differentiation, integration, and application of integration. This course integrates symbolic tools, graphical concepts and numerical calculations.
- Acquire and apply the fundamental principles of calculus.
- Apply the appropriate method studied to solve mathematical problems.
- Provide solution to solve mathematical prolem arise from real life.
