MAT420/430/510/520: Calculus

This four-term sequence presents a comprehensive and inductive approach to calculus. Working within contexts whenever possible, key concepts are developed with applications in mind.

This four-term sequence presents a comprehensive and inductive approach to calculus. Working within contexts whenever possible, key concepts are developed with applications in mind. Students learn to read the language of differential equations, and to appreciate that the two principal divisions of calculus - differential (rate problems) and integral (accumulation problems) - are unified by the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Students who are enrolled in 430 or higher in the spring will be prepared to take the AB Advanced Placement examination. Students who are enrolled in 520 will be prepared for the BC examination. In preparation for the examination, MAT430 and MAT520 classes during the spring term may meet during the reserve formats before the examination and fewer times per week after.
