**Bulletin Description and Course Content**

Derivatives and integrals. Applications of differentiation and integration, including optimization. Problems involving business, finance, and economics.

**Student Learning Outcomes**

Math 108 is the sequel to Math 107. Together, Math 107 and Math 108 constitute a “stretched” version of Math 110. Only Math 108 of this sequence can be used to meet the GE Area B4 (Quantitative Reasoning) requirement. Upon successful completion of this course, students will:

- Demonstrate an understanding of the concepts of, and relationship between, average rate of change, instantaneous rate of change, and derivative
**.** - Find derivatives of functions using standard rules of differentiation.
- Compute and interpret the extrema of functions using the first and second derivative tests in the context of business applications.
- Demonstrate, in an applied context, an understanding of the meaning of the area under a curve.
- Compute and interpret the area under a curve by approximating with sums of rectangles and by the use of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and anti-derivatives.
