Generally available in the Spring since students must also complete MIS 111 or ABE 120 to be eligible for this course.
Description: Introductory topics in differential and integral calculus, with particular emphasis on understanding the principal concepts and their applications to business. Graphing calculators will be used as tools for further understanding these concepts. Except as per University policy on repeating a course, credit will not be given for this course if the student has credit in a higher level math course. Such students may be dropped from the course.
Comments: This course is for all majors within Eller College and a few in Ag and Life Sciences. Because this course is considered a survey of calculus for business related majors, it cannot be used to satisfy the Math 122B/125 requirement and cannot be used as a prerequisite to additional calculus courses such as Math 122A, 122B, 125, or 129. Students who want to take a course that prepares them for Calculus I should consider Math 120R instead. Not a prerequisite. This course has a common final exam.
