Students who successfully complete this class should be able to:
- Calculate limits of functions using graphs, numerical data, and algebraic methods; and use limits to determine continuity.
- State the definition of a derivative and use it to find the derivative of functions.
- Use the general differentiation rules to calculate derivatives of algebraic functions, transcendental functions, and combinations of those functions.
- Apply derivatives to solve application problems and determine the behavior of functions.
