OBJECTIVES: 
After finishing this course, the student should be able to understand the concepts of limit, continuity, derivative, and definite integral and be proficient in computing limits and derivatives of functions and some elementary definite integrals through the use of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. In addition, the student should be able use differentiation in a variety of applications including graphing, minmax, and related rate problems.
