Math 221 (Calculus I for Engineers) Fall 2008

Course Description

This section of Math 221 (Calculus I) is a specially designed section for engineering majors emphasizing scientific and engineering applications and mathematical modelling. A major theme of the course will be the interaction between discrete mathematics (sequences, series, difference calculus) and continuous mathematics (functions, limits, derivatives and integrals). We will relate this theme to the interaction between the physical/scientific applications of calculus and its abstract mathematical underpinnings. The main goal of the course is to cover differential and integral calculus in one variable through the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
