MATH 140 - Calculus for Business
The following are the Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) and Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs) for MATH 140. A Student Learning Outcome is a measurable outcome statement about what a student will think, know, or be able to do as a result of an educational experience. Course Measurable Objectives focus more on course content, and can be considered to be smaller pieces that build up to the SLOs.
Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)
- Students will understand the use of the derivative and be able to accurately differentiate a given function as suggested by the notation and/or the wording of the problem.
- Students will understand the use of the integral and will be able to accurately integrate a given function as suggested by the notation and/or the wording of the problem.
Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs)
- Identify the limit of a function.
- Apply the definition of continuity.
- Find the first and higher-order derivatives for functions (algebraic, exponential, logarithmic and combinations of these), explicitly and implicitly.
- Apply the derivative to curve sketching, related rates, and optimization problems.
- Use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus for the solution of real-life problems.
- Select the appropriate integration technique suitable to given problems.
- Apply calculus techniques to analyze functions of several variables.
- Analyze a variety of applied problems using calculus.
