INTRODUCTION TO COURSE
Introduce the students with basic concepts of limits, differentiation and integration.The purpose of this course is provide the necessary mathematical skills to pursue more advanced courses in economics. This course also features on techniques of Integration and applications of integrals. The course is devised to enhance the technical skills in the area of calculus which are used in almost all sub-disciplines of Economics.
Prerequisites for calculus include courses typically called Algebra I (elementary algebra) and Algebra II (intermediate algebra), elementary geometry as well as an introductory analysis course usually called precalculus.
