  • Overview

    Description
    This module is aimed at students, starting with knowledge of higher level leaving certificate mathematics and differential calculus, to gain a sound grasp of integral calculus. Students on the module are expected to master fundamental techniques of integral calculus through doing a substantial number of exercises. It also exposes students to applications of calculus in economics and finance, and lays the foundations for further courses in calculus, analysis, probability and statistics.

    Learning Outcomes
    1. understand the concept of definite integral and know the basic properties of definite integrals
    2. understand the concept of area of regions with curvilinear boundaries, be able to find area between curves
    3. understand the concept of indefinite integral as anti-derivative
    4. integrate important elementary functions, using the rules of integration
    5. prove important results about the logarithm, exponential, and trigonometric functions
    6. apply their knowledge of integration to solve real world problems in economics and finance
