# MATH 132 - Applied Calculus

Number of Credits: 3
Applied Calculus introduces the basic concepts of Calculus with applications to Business, Life Sciences, and Social Sciences. Concepts of Limits, differentiation, and integrations will be introduced for polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions. An introduction to functions involving several variables and partial derivatives will be included. Applications of Business, Life Sciences, and Social Sciences will be extensively developed. Students will utilize a graphing calculator throughout the course. Prerequisite: eligibility for ENGL-101, plus completion of MATH-123 with a minimum grade of C or better; or satisfactory score on the placement test. Credit by exam available. Graphing calculator required. GENERAL EDUCATION (Fall, Spring and Summer) Four hours lecture. Three Credits. Three billable hours.
