This subject in calculus provides a solid foundation in the theory and applications of differential and integral calculus to a variety of real-world situations. The subject begins with some preliminary material that reviews the concept of a function and of basic problem-solving techniques and includes limits, differentiation, graph sketching, integration and inverse functions. Apart from imparting technical knowledge on rules of integration and differentiation, the subject requires students to solve conceptual problems, thus enhancing their understanding of the principles of calculus. The key aim of this subject is to make students understand, appreciate and finally enjoy and embrace calculus. Successful completion of Calculus will ensure that students have the necessary preparation and foundation for subsequent major studies in mathematics, in particular, Advanced Calculus. This subject is an essential part of the mathematics program and is specifically designed in consultation with education providers to meet the needs of teacher training. A key feature of this subject is the project based approach. Students are assigned projects. As each topic is taught, students are asked to apply their learning to the project and, as a part of their assessment, students are asked to submit their project report. Thus students will be able to apply the knowledge in a real life setting.
