Course
description
MAT 131 is the first course in the 2semester single variable calculus
sequence. It covers limits, continuous functions, derivatives and their
applications, antiderivatives and the fundamental
theorem of calculus. The course moves rather quickly. Students who would like
to learn the same material at a somewhat slower pace should take MAT 125. The
threesemester sequence MAT 125126127 covers the same material as the
twosemester sequence MAT 131132.
