Course description

MAT 131 is the first course in the 2-semester 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 three-semester sequence MAT 125-126-127 covers the same material as the two-semester sequence MAT 131-132.
