MATH 145 : Calculus I for Life and Environmental Sciences

Credits: 4

Course Description: The course is the first in the sequence of calculus courses for science and math majors. The topics covered in this course parallel the topics covered in the other Math 140 sections; however, the applications presented in this course have origins in biological systems. The course begins with the basic concepts of functions, discrete time models and limits in the context of population models. Further topics covered include: derivatives along with their applications to biological modeling and definite and indefinite integrals with applications to geometric and biological problems.

Pre-Requisites: Math Placement Test or a grade of B or better in MATH 130 in the previous semester.

Comments: Students who complete this course will be eligible for MATH 141, or MATH 146, as well as MATH 303.
