Course Description This course introduces the concepts of differential and integral calculus useful to students in business, economics. Among the topics studied are: curve sketching for some functions relevant to business and economics applications, derivatives and techniques of differentiation, exponential growth, anti-derivatives and methods of integration, definite and indefinite integrals with applications. The course also covers topics on partial derivatives and matrices, in addition to many applications in Business and Economics. Prerequisite: MATU 1332 Textbook Calculus for Business, Economics, and the Social and Life Sciences, Brief Edition, 11th Ed. by Hoffmann, Bradley, Sobecki, and Price, McGraw-Hill, 2013. Course coordinator Dr. Ana Vasilic, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Office F1-0079 vasilic@uaeu.ac.ae
