Covers the fundamental concepts necessary for success in engineering courses and Applied Mathemtics courses.

Credits: 4

Advanced techniques of integration are introduced, and integration is used in physics applications like fluid force, work, and center of mass. Improper integrals and approximate integration using Simpson's Rule are also studied. Infinite series including Taylor series are studied and numerical methods involving Taylor polynomials are studied. Parametric equations and polar coordinates are introduced and applied. Complex numbers are introduced.

Credits: 3

The study of the mathematics needed to understand and answer a variety of questions that arise in everyday financial dealings. The emphasis is on applications, including simple and compound interest, valuation of bonds, amortization, sinking funds, and rates of return on investments. A solid understanding of algebra is assumed.

Credits: 3
