MATH 134 : Managerial Calculus

Credits: 3

Course Description: A one-semester course in calculus, with particular emphasis on applications to economics and management. Topics covered include limits, continuity, derivatives, and integrals.

Pre-Requisites: Math Placement Test or successful completion of MATH 129 or MATH 130.

Comments: Students may not receive graduation credit for both MATH 134 and MATH 135. Students may take MATH 140 after MATH 134, but only with the explicit permission of the department and then only for two credits.
