Vv 115: Calculus I 

General information

Degree programElectrical and Computer Engineering/Mechanical Engineering
Course description: The sequence Applied Calculus Vv115-116-215-216 is an introduction to basic calculus. It differs from the Honors Math sequence in that new concepts are often introduced and extended from concrete examples, remaining closely aligned to applications. Most theorems are stated rigorously and motivated from examples, but complicated proofs and abstract generalizations are often omitted.  The emphasis is on applying mathematical results to concrete problems.The present course covers the calculus of functions of a single real variable.
Credit hours: 4 credits
Pre-requisites: 3-4 years high school math including trigonometry
