This course is an introduction to the concepts, formalism, and applications of functions, limits, and the derivative. Elementary transcendental functions are introduced and used throughout. Specific topics include functions, limits, the derivative, and applications of differentiation.

There are no prerequisites for this class. Students are expected to have a background in high school algebra and geometry.

Students should NOT take this course if they plan to take only one semester of calculus or if they have already seen derivatives in a previous class.

Students who earned Rhodes credit for AP Calculus AB or IB Mathematics scores may not enroll in this class.

Students who have taken calculus in high school may not earn credit for Math 112 without permission from the instructor.
