For late registration approval email Mathpts@bcit.ca and include your student ID. **For students who require both MATH 2001 and 2002 it is STRONGLY recommended to complete 2001 prior to 2002. IMPORTANT: FINAL EXAM is on the last day of class – NO EXCEPTIONS. Please note this course is intended mainly as part of a make-up for calculus courses in BCIT Engineering Programs, and therefore may not be appropriate as a mathematics requirement for other programs (e.g., a business program). This course is NOT equivalent to university Calculus 1 and can only be used for credit in BCIT programs.
Upon successful completion, the student will be able to:
- Discuss the underlying concepts behind derivatives
- Work with polynomial and transcendental functions
- Employ a variety of techniques to find derivatives of functions
- Apply the derivative to solve problems including curve sketching, related rates and optimization
Effective as of Fall 2016
