Course Description

Calculus for Science, Engineering, and Mathematics, MATH 19A

The limit of a function, calculating limits, continuity, tangents, velocities, and other instantaneous rates of change. Derivatives, the chain rule, implicit differentiation, higher derivatives. Exponential functions, inverse functions, and their derivatives. The mean value theorem, monotonic functions, concavity, and points of inflection. Applied maximum and minimum problems. Students cannot receive credit for both this course and MATH 11A, or AM 11A, or AM 15A, or ECON 11A.

More About The Course

With a focus on differential calculus, Math 19A/Calculus 1 is a standard introductory calculus course with applications to nearly all quantitative-based courses of study including chemistry, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, information systems management, mathematics, and physics majors.
Whether it’s understanding the derivative of a function, calculating limits, continuity, velocities and instantaneous rates of change, tangent lines, or exponential and inverse functions, the online format of Calculus 1 allows students greater ability to self-pace their learning, experiment and use technology to further their knowledge and understanding through an interactive and dynamic E-Book and other learning tools. The course offers students an online discussion forum to post questions relating to the video lectures, homework, reading, and course logistics. Students are encouraged to respond to each others questions, and instructors and TA’s monitor these forums, responding to student questions as well. In addition, the teaching staff hold regular online office hours, as well as optional discussion sections.
