## Course Goals

In this course we will master the details of differential calculus, and pursue some advanced topics and applications. We will also develop technical writing skills that allow clear communication of sophisticated ideas, and learn about some technological tools such as Mathematica useful to mathematical and scientific projects.

We will cover limits, continuity, derivatives, modelling, and applications.

The course syllabus is available here.

## Textbook

The textbook for this course is Single Variable Essential Calculus Early Transcendentals, Second Edition, by James Stewart. The ISBN is 1-1331-1278-1.

Be warned that there are several custom versions of this textbook floating around, and they do not contain the same problems. In particular, in past years some students have purchased the international version which (1) is much cheaper and (2) doesn’t contain the same homework problems as the assigned text. This is terrible and I apologize but I can’t do much other than warn you.

There are electronic versions of the textbook available from the publisher for rent or purchase.
