Learning Objectives


The overall objective of this material is for the reader to become sufficiently well prepared to have a good chance of success in a university calculus course at the honours level – as might be required for a student planning to go on to further study in either mathematics or the “hard” sciences. This requires not just ability to apply rote procedures to calculate things but also to have a deeper understanding of why the things are being calculated, of why the methods work, and of the practical uses to which the techniques may be put.
