MAT 271 Calculus I (4 Credit Hours)
Class Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 2
Clinical/Work Experience Hours: 0
Prerequisites: Take MAT 172
This course is designed to develop the topics of differential and integral calculus. Emphasis is placed on limits, continuity, derivatives and integrals of algebraic and transcendental functions of one variable. Upon completion, students should be able to select and use appropriate models and techniques for finding solutions to derivative-related problems with and without technology.
Student Learning Outcomes
1. Apply the definition of limit to evaluate limits by multiple methods and use it to derive the definition and rules for differentiation and integration.
2. Use derivatives to analyze and graph algebraic and transcendental functions.
3. Select and apply appropriate models and differentiation techniques to solve problems involving algebraic and transcendental functions; these problems will include but are not limited to applications involving optimization and related rates.
4. Apply the definition of indefinite integral to solve basic differential equations.
5. Apply the definition of definite integral to evaluate basic integrals.
6. Use the fundamental theorem of calculus to evaluate integrals involving algebraic and transcendental functions.
This course has been identified as a Universal General Education Transfer Component (UGETC) course under the North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement. Students completing courses designated as UGETC, with a C or higher, will receive equivalent general education course credit for those courses at the receiving UNC institution.
