MATH 2301 - Calculus I


First course in calculus and analytic geometry with applications in the sciences and engineering. Includes basic techniques of differentiation and integration with applications including rates of change, optimization problems, and curve sketching; includes exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions. Calculus is the mathematical language used to describe and analyze change. The course emphasizes how this abstract language and its associated techniques provide a unified way of approaching problems originating in disparate areas of science, technology, and society, highlighting how questions arising in different fields are connected to the same fundamental mathematical ideas. No credit for both MATH 2301 and 1350 (always keep 2301).

Learning Outcomes:
  • Students will be able to use the tools of differential and integral calculus in a variety of applications.
  • Students will be able to explain information presented in mathematical forms (e.g., equations, graphs, diagrams, tables, words).
  • Students will be able to convert relevant information into various mathematical forms (e.g., equations, graphs, diagrams, tables, words).
  • Students will be able to calculate relevant information using various mathematical formulas.
  • Students will be able to make judgments and draw appropriate conclusions based on the quantitative analysis of data while recognizing the limits of this analysis.
  • Students will be able to make and evaluate important assumptions in estimation, modeling, and data analysis.
  • Students will be able to express quantitative evidence in support of the argument or purpose of the work (in terms of what evidence is used and how it is formatted, presented, and contextualized).
  • Students will be able to critically state, describe, and consider an issue or problem.
  • Students will be able to use information from source(s) with enough interpretation/evaluation to develop a comprehensive analysis or synthesis.
  • Students will be able to systematically and methodically analyze assumptions and carefully evaluate the relevance of contexts when presenting a position.
  • Students will be able to state a specific position (i.e., perspective, thesis, or hypothesis) that is thoughtful, recognizes complexities, and acknowledges limitations.
  • Students will be able to state conclusions and related outcomes (consequences and implications) logically and in a priority order.
