Calculus is the mathematics of change, calculating problems that are continually evolving. This is possible by breaking such problems into infinitesmall steps, solving each of those steps, and adding all results. Rather than doing each step individually, calculus allows these computations to be done simultaneously. There are two primary branches of calculus: differential and integral. Therefore, students are exposes to limits and continuity, differentiation, application of differentiation, integration, and application of integration. This course integrates symbolic tools, graphical concepts and numerical calculations.
By the end of this course, student should be able to
(i) Acquire and apply the fundamental principle of calculus
(ii) Apply the appropriate method to solve mathematical problems
(iii) Provide solution to solve mathematical problems arise from real life
