MTH141 (Introductory Calculus with Analytic Geometry)
MTH 141 is a demanding course for students who may later be using calculus professionally. In order to succeed in the course, you will have to work systematically and hard. Topics include: analytic geometry, functions and their graphs, the derivative, applications to finding rates of change and extrema and to graphing, the integral, and applications.
Maple is a powerful computer algebra system that can perform the most complicated calculations and draw spectacular graphics at the touch of the button. Knowledge of software like Maple should help you in your future professional career as well as in understanding material in calculus.
