Calculus I:

Functions, limits, and derivatives of algebraic functions. Introduction to derivatives of trigonometric functions, logarithmic functions; application of derivatives to physics problems; related rates and maximum/minimum problems, and definite and indefinite integrals with applications. This course has been exempted from the requirements of the Writing Across the Curriculum policy.

Calculus II:  

Riemann sums; the definite integral; method of integration; continuation of exponential, logarithmic functions, and inverse trigonometric functions. L'Hopital's rule and improper integrals. This course has been exempted from the requirements of the Writing Across the Curriculum policy.

Calculus III:

Functions of several variables, surfaces, in three-space, vectors, techniques of partial differentiation and multiple integration with applications. Vector calculus topics will include the theorems of Green, Gauss and Strokes. This course has been exempted from the requirements of the Writing Across the Curriculum policy.

Advanced Calculus I:

The course is an introduction to the theoretical treatment of the real numbers, sets, functions, sequences, limits and calculus. The course places an emphasis on reading and writing formal mathematical proofs. Topics include: the real number system, convergence of sequence and series, continuity, limits, functions of one real variable, and the theoretical foundations of differentiation and integration of functions of a single variable.

Advanced Calculus II: 

This course is a continuation of Advanced Calculus I providing an introduction to metric spaces and their topology. The course places an emphasis on extending results for real functions to multivariable functions. Topics include: metric spaces and topology, integration, differentiation, optimization and analysis in several variables.
