Differential calculus for scientists (M408N)

 M 408N is the first-semester calculus course of the three course calculus sequence.  It is directed at students in the natural sciences, and is restricted to College of Natural Science Students.  The emphasis in this course is on problem solving, not on the presentation of theoretical considerations. While the course includes some discussion of theoretical notions, these are supporting rather than primary.

The syllabus for M 408N includes most of the basic topics in the theory of differential calculus of functions of a real variable: algebraic, trigonometric, logarithmic and exponential functions and their limits, continuity, derivatives, maxima and minima, as well as definite integrals and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
