2023 – 2024 Spring Semester MATH 2301 Calculus I Sections 100, 110, 120

Campus: Ohio University, Athens Campus

Department: Mathematics

Course Description: First course in calculus and analytic geometry with applications in the sciences and engineering. Includes basic techniques of differentiation and integration with applications including rates of change, optimization problems, and curve sketching; includes exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions. Calculus is the mathematical language used to describe and analyze change. The course emphasizes how this abstract language and its associated techniques provide a unified way of approaching problems originating in disparate areas of science, technology, and society, highlighting how questions arising in different fields are connected to the same fundamental mathematical ideas. No credit for both MATH 2301 and 1350 (always keep 2301).

Prerequisites: (B or better in MATH 1350) or (C or better in 1300 or 1322) or (Math placement level 3)
