Upon successful completion of the course, each student should be able to:
1. Use the concepts of the Calculus: limits, continuity, derivatives and antiderivatives, Riemann sums and integration as they apply to standard elementary mathematical functions: algebraic, trigonometric, logarithmic and exponential.
2. Differentiate and integrate functions.
3. Apply differentiation and integration to the concepts of other fields such as computer science, physics and engineering.
4. Utilize indeterminate forms and compute the associated limits.
