About the Course

The focus and themes of the Introduction to Calculus course address the most important foundations for applications of mathematics in science, engineering and commerce. The course emphasises the key ideas and historical motivation for calculus, while at the same time striking a balance between theory and application, leading to a mastery of key threshold concepts in foundational mathematics. Students taking Introduction to Calculus will: • gain familiarity with key ideas of precalculus, including the manipulation of equations and elementary functions (first two weeks), • develop fluency with the preliminary methodology of tangents and limits, and the definition of a derivative (third week), • develop and practice methods of differential calculus with applications (fourth week), • develop and practice methods of the integral calculus (fifth week)....

The class did not feel like an introductory course and was very difficult to complete the assignments in the allotted timeframes so it was a constant crunch to beat the clock. I also did not feel like the answers were thoroughly explained at times and required outside research to figure them out.

The title of the course is a bit deceiving because it assumes the student has some familiarity with calculus. My advice is that if you don't already have some knowledge of both differential and integral calculus, this course is definitely not for you.

There is content on the quizzes that is not covered in the course. Quite a bit of prior knowledge is assumed. I had to do outside reading to prepare for the quiz. Frustrating and discouraging!

This wasn't for me. The pace was either too slow and way below what I needed or when areas were on topic, they still didn't make sense.
