Calculus material: limits, indeterminate forms + l'Hopital's Rule, Squeeze Theorem, differentiation (limit definition, techniques, implicit, logarithmic), linearization of a function, Extreme Value Theorem, Intermediate Value Theorem, Rolle's Theorem, Mean Value Theorem, very simple antidifferentiation. *Will be explored more in-depth using calculus concepts

Comments on the course

If you did well in high school calculus this course should mostly be a review.

Advice

Don't overlook definitions they give or anything they label with "theorem"; theorems and definitions help save time on homework and exams.
