Exit Skills

  1. Perform the various algebra computations encountered in Survey Calculus.
  2. Find the derivative of a function using the basic limit definition.
  3. Find derivatives using the following: power rule, product rule, quotient rule, chain rule, implicit differentiation, higher order derivatives, and derivatives of exponential and logarithmic functions.
  4. Apply derivatives to solve problems of  marginal analysis in business and economics.

Objectives for MAT 210

  1. Demonstrate mastery of algebraic skills involving expressions (factoring, rational, exponential, logarithms, and radical) and solving equations (linear, quadratic, exponential, and logarithmic).
  2. Find derivatives using all rules including implicit differentiation for algebraic, exponential, and logarithmic functions.
  3. Use derivatives for graphing, marginal analysis, increments and differentials applications, and rated rates problems.
  4. Evaluate single integrals, both indefinite and definite, by methods of substitution and integration by parts; use single integrals to solve application problems.
  5. Evaluate double integrals over rectangular regions.
  6. Find partial derivatives of multiple variable functions and solve optimization problems using the Second Partial Derivatives Test and Lagrange Multipliers.
