**Main Objectives**: One overarching objective of this course is to use limits, continuity and the derivative to understand the behavior of functions of one variable. Another one is to define the definite integral of a function and show how it is related to its antiderivative or indefinite integral. The students are first expected to come to grips with the notion of a limit, which lies at the heart of the definitions of continuity, the derivative, and the definite integral. Of particular importance in this course is that the students must understand the role played by the derivative of a function in the theory and applications of differential calculus. The theory includes sketching and hence understanding the graphs of functions and Newton's Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to the effect that differentiation and integration are inverse to each other. Applications of the derivatives such as Approximations, Related Rates, and Optimization Problems are features of the course. Applications of indefinite integrals and definite integrals in distances and areas, respectively, are also given.
