# Undergraduate Course: Calculus and its Applications (MATH08058)

 School School of Mathematics College College of Science and Engineering Credit level (Normal year taken) SCQF Level 8 (Year 1 Undergraduate) Availability Available to all students SCQF Credits 20 ECTS Credits 10 Summary Calculus is the most fundamental tool in mathematics and its applications. This course covers functions, limits, differentiation and applications, integration and applications, infinite and Taylor series, and a first introduction to differential equations. The course also develops calculational facility that is essential for more advanced mathematical study. Course description This syllabus is for guidance purposes only : * Lectures 1-8: Functions (types/composition), limits (including precise definition) and continuity, chapters 1-2. * Lectures 9-16: Differentiation (chain rule/implicit/differentials) and applications (max/min/mean value theorem/Newton's method), chapters 3-4. * Lectures 17-22: Integration (fundamental theorem of calculus/substitution rule) and applications (Areas/volumes), chapters 5-6. * Lectures 23-27: Inverse functions, definition of logarithm/exponential, and L'Hopital's rule, chapter 7. * Lectures 28-31: Further integration (by parts/rational functions/approximate), and further applications (arc length/surface of revolution), chapters 8-9. * Lectures 32-35: Differential equations (modelling/direction fields/separable/linear first order), chapter 10. * Lectures 36-42: Curves, polar coordinates, Taylor series, some material of chapters 11-12.
