Prerequisite: Calculus (one semester)

In this course, students will complete several projects that are designed to both expand and enrich their understanding of differential calculus. Selected projects will be chosen at an appropriate level of difficulty for students who have completed the fall semester Calculus course.  Additionally, students will study business and life science applications of derivatives and antiderivatives, learning essential concepts through this work.  Finally, students will read and respond to several articles related to applications of math in our world today and math education as seen from a variety of perspectives. The goal of this course is to give students a taste of the real-world applications of calculus.
