MATH 141: Calculus of a Single Variable I


(1 Unit)
Prerequisite: 2.0 or higher in MATH 120   (College Algebra) AND concurrent enrollment in MATH 127   (Trigonometry); or 2.0 or higher in MATH 125   (Precalculus); or appropriate score on the mathematics placement assessment.
MATH 141 and MATH 143  constitute a thorough introduction to calculus for students who intend to continue in mathematics and for those who will use calculus in other fields such as science and engineering. Second half of the standard one-year calculus sequence (see MATH 141 above). MATH 141 covers limits, continuity, derivatives and a brief introduction to integration, as well as applications to problems in related rates, optimization, solid geometry and elementary mechanics. Requires a strong working knowledge of algebra and trigonometry. Students who are weak in these areas should elect MATH 125 . A graphing calculator is required. A minimum grade of 2.0 is required in any mathematics course used as a prerequisite for another mathematics course. Staff.
