MATH 1K03, Fall 2018

ADVANCED FUNCTIONS & INTRODUCTORY CALCULUS FOR HUMANITIES AND THE SOCIAL SCIENCES

Which calculus course should I take?

Math 1K03 This one-semester course covers some of the functions and calculus portions of the two Grade 12 math courses Advanced Functions and Calculus&Vectors. It is intended for students who took neither of those two courses, and need  to take a university-level calculus course. The focus is on the study of functions which are relevant in the social sciences; in particular, trigonometric functions are not included. If you plan to take Math 1M03 after this course, you need to get a sufficiently high grade, as 1K cannot cover all the prerequisite material required. You may take Math 1F03 after Math 1K03 to improve your preparation for further math courses.

INSTRUCTOR:  Erin Caulfield
