ICNS 103 Syllabus

Course syllabus for ICNS103 Fundamental Mathematics.

Course Description

Single-variable calculus: limits and continuity, differentiation, curve sketching, applied maxima and minima, integration, area between curves.

Several-variable calculus: multivariable functions, partial differentiation.

Course Objectives

After completion of this course, student should be able to:

  1. solve algebraic problems involving limits and continuity, differentiation, relative extrema, integration, and partial derivatives;
  2. explain how the basic concepts of differential and integral calculus can be applied to solve problems mainly in business and economics.
