Course Synopsis

Single variable calculus, which is what we begin with, can deal with motion of an object along a fixed path. The more general problem, when motion can take place on a surface, or in space, can be handled by multivariable calculus. So single variable calculus is the key to the general problem as well. The topics which will be covered in the course 'Calculus and Analytical Geometry MTH101' are Real numbers, set theory, intervals and inequalities, Lines, functions and graphs, Limits and Continuity, Differentiation, Integration and Sequence and Series. The study of calculus is normally aimed at giving you the "mathematical sophistication" to relate to such more advanced work. Calculus and Analytical Geometry MTH101 is pre-requisite course for Calculus II (MTH301).

Course Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course, you should be able to:
  • Use a variety of methods in solving real-life, practical, technical, and theoretical problems
  • Select and use an appropriate problem-solving strategy
  • Explain the limit process and that calculus centers around this concept
  • Identify the two classical problems that were solved by the discovery of calculus, The tangent problem and the area problem
  • Describe the two main branches of calculus, Differential calculus and Integral calculus
