Calculus I: Limits, Derivatives, and Integrals

MATH 1110H is an introduction to the concepts and techniques of single-variable differential and some integral calculus, with some applications to other areas of mathematics and science.

Prerequisite: Grade 12U Advanced Functions or equivalent with at least 60%.
Strongly Recommended: Grade 12U Calculus and Vectors or equivalent.

Some useful general tips for first-year mathematics students are given in the pamphlet Enjoying Math! (pdf).


No doubt but magic may do much in this;
For he that reads but mathematic rules
Shall find conclusions that avail to work
Wonders that pass the common sense of men.

Robert Greene (from Friar Bacon and Friar Bungay)
