This is one of the foundation courses offered by the university, which fulfills the requirement of foundation in “Numeracy”. This course is mandatory for the students who wish to major in Computer Science and Engineering.
Topics include: Functions and their visualization, limits, and continuity; Differential calculus, differentiation of product and quotient; Successive differentiation. Additional techniques of integration. Interpretations of the derivative, applications of the derivative to geometry, mechanics, marginality and optimization. Newton’s method. Introduction to modeling; Integral calculus, integration by parts; Definite integral, interpretations and properties of the definite integral, applications of the definite integral to geometry, mechanics, economics and modeling. Approximating definite integral, approximation errors and Simpson’s rule, improper integrals. Taylor polynomials and series, convergence of series, finding and using Taylor’s series, indeterminate forms, Fourier series. First order differential equations: Slope fields, Euler’s method, separation of variables, linear equations, applications and modeling.
