Course Learning Outcomes
  1. Evaluate limits of functions.
  2. Differentiate functions and apply derivatives.
  3. Determine antiderivatives of functions and apply the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.

Performance Objectives:
  1. Evaluate certain limits analytically, and estimate other limits numerically and/or graphically.  These limits include double-sided, one-sided, and limits at infinity.
  2. Use the definition of continuity to identify points and types of discontinuity of functions defined analytically or graphically.
  3. Use the definition of the derivative to calculate the exact derivative of certain functions and/or estimate the value of the derivative at a point.
  4. Sketch the derivative of a function defined graphically.
  5. Explain the meaning of the derivative in an applied situation using appropriate units.
  6. Calculate derivatives, explicitly and implicitly, of algebraic combinations of polynomial, radical, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, and inverse trigonometric function.
  7. Determine the linear approximation of a function defined analytically, numerically, or graphically.
  8. Solve related rates problems.
  9. Calculate higher order derivatives of algebraic combinations of polynomial, radical, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, and inverse trigonometric functions.
  10. Estimate small changes in a function using differentials.
  11. Use the 1st derivative to identify critical points and intervals of increase and decrease.
  12. Identify the type and location of extrema using 1st and/or 2nd derivative tests.
  13. Use the 2nd derivative to identify intervals of upward and downward concavity and inflection points.
  14. Sketch graphs of algebraic and transcendental functions using information obtained from derivatives and other analyses.
  15. Evaluate a variety of indeterminate forms using L’Hopital’s Rule.
  16. Solve a variety of optimization problems using derivatives.
  17. Find antiderivatives of polynomial, exponential, and some rational and trigonometric functions.
  18. Solve applied problems requiring the use of antiderivatives such as acceleration, velocity, and position problems.
  19. Sketch the graph of a possible antiderivative of a function defined graphically.
  20. Use finite sums to estimate the definite integral of functions defined numerically, graphically or analytically.  Estimate techniques should include some of the following: left/right hand, trapezoid, and midpoint rules.
  21. Interpret the definite integral in an applied situation using appropriate units.
  22. Evaluate definite integrals using the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
  23. Calculate the area beneath the graph of a function using the definite integral.  
  24. Use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to demonstrate that differentiation and integration are inverse operations.
  25. Use the technique of “substitution” to evaluate definite and indefinite integrals.
