Course Synopsis Students will be exposed to calculus methods so that they will be able to
solve real-life problems, and be able to apply them to solve problems arise
in different scientific and engineering discipline.

Course The main objectives of this course are as follows:

1. To develop a clear understanding of definitions, concepts, rules,
theorems, techniques, and applications of differential and integral
2. To provide students with the basic knowledge of calculus and to
understand numerical computation methods in future courses.

Learning At the end of the course, students should be able to :

1. apply methods of differentiation and integration.
2. apply the knowledge gained to solve real-life problems.
3. apply the knowledge gained in other courses of higher levels.

4. use computers in solving mathematical problems.
