    This course is designed for students interested in majoring in mathematics, engineering or physical science. This fifth year of college level mathematics examines calculus with some integrated analytic geometry. In the first semester differential calculus is developed with its applications while the second semester is devoted to integral calculus and some of its applications. Students should own a TI-84 Plus calculator for use in this course. In order to receive weighted grading credit for the class, students must earn a B or better in the class (click ​here​ for AP policy). ​College credit (4 cr) is available for this course through the University of Pittsburgh.
