    MATH 10A: Techniques of Calculus (a)

    Instructor: Sarah Dennis
    Prerequisites: A satisfactory grade of C- or higher in MATH 5a or placement by examination. Students may not take MATH 10a if they have received a satisfactory grade in MATH 10b or MATH 20a.
    Course Description: Calculus is one of the greatest intellectual achievements of humankind. The beautiful idea at the heart of this subject allows us to explore both the infinite and the infinitesimal. This gives us the tools to model and analyze phenomena that change – which is to say, practically everything!In this course we will cover differential calculus. We will begin by introducing limits and work up to the limit definition of the derivative. Then we will move to techniques of differentiation. We will spend time working on applications to economics, physics, biology and more. It is expected that students will have a good working knowledge of precalculus.
