Winter 2018 quarter
The focus this quarter will be on the integral. Using simple, rectangular approximations, the integral will first be developed intuitively as the area between curves and then formally defined as the limit of Riemann Sums. A substantial portion of the class will be devoted to learning methods for finding anti-derivatives. Students will have substantial opportunity to review differentiation while finding integrals. Via the FTC, integrals will be used to calculate areas, volumes, work, energy, and displacement. Emphasis will be given to developing excellent symbolic reasoning skills, modeling geometric and physical phenomena, and using numerical approximations effectively.
