## Course Descriptions:

### College Calculus

College Calculus (3177): (1 weighted high school math credit)

This course covers 2 semesters of university-level calculus for scientists and engineers, emphasizing understanding and application. The first semester covers limits and continuity of functions, techniques and applications of differentiation, and introduces integration. The second semester covers applications and advanced techniques of integration, differential equations, sequences and series, and analytical geometry. Upon completion of this course, students will understand both the geometric and rate of change analyses of differential and integral calculus. Students will apply their understanding of calculus to modeling real-world situations mathematically and be able to solve those mathematical models. Successful completion of this course will prepare students to enroll in multivariable calculus / linear algebra.

### Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra (TNCC MTH265 & MTH266)

Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra (3178): (1 weighted high school math credit)

This course focuses on extending the concepts of geometry, algebraic operations, function,

limit, continuity, derivative, integral and vector from the plane to the three dimensional

space. Features instruction for mathematical, physical and engineering science programs. It will prepare students for further study in mathematics, engineering and science programs by providing the necessary competencies in calculus concepts in the three dimensional space.
