MATH 1M03, Winter 2019

CALCULUS FOR BUSINESS, HUMANITIES AND THE SOCIAL SCIENCES

Which calculus course should I take?

Math 1M03   This one-semester course is called Calculus for the Social Sciences. The course assumes that you have taken Grade 12 Calculus&Vectors, but there will be a lot of review of this material at the beginning of the course. The focus is on the study of functions which are relevant in the social sciences; in particular, trigonometric functions are not included. If you plan to take Math 1AA3 or Math 1LT3 after this course, you need to get a sufficiently high grade, as 1M cannot cover all the prerequisite material required. If you think you will want to study more math, you will be much better prepared by taking Math 1A or Math 1LS.
