Calculus is essential for natural science and engineering. This course presents parts of calculus, differentiation and integration of several functions including polar curves.


We will calculate various quantities, such as arc lengths and areas of the surface of revolution. In addition, we will learn how to determine the convergence of various series and how we can expand functions using power series.


Basic knowledge for algebra.

Materials: Calculus 8E (Metric version, Early transcendentals) by James Stewart.
