Math is HOT! One of the most popular movies of 1998, "Good Will Hunting," was a story about a math nerd who solves the problem and gets the girl. Wall Street relies on complicated formulas from calculus to predict trends and forecast the likelihood of financial success based on many factors. Books about mathematics and numbers are flying off the shelves at bookstores across the country. A major fragrance manufacturer is busy developing a fragrance for men called "pi." What could explain this mysterious phenomenon? According to National Public Radio, smart is in and so is the study of mathematics.
Introduction to Calculus is designed for students interested in college mathematics and particularly those who can't commit to a full year of study during their senior year. This semester-long course will cover limits, continuity, derivatives and their applications. We will examine the finer points of calculus and look at its specific applications to business and finance along the way.
