MATH 3A - Differential Calculus and Applications

Approval Status


Date Reviewed

February 2018

Math 3A is the first course of a two quarter sequence in Differential and Integral Calculus. Homework is typically done online. Consult your instructor about whether a specific textbook will be required. 3A covers just a little more than three chapters in a typical textbook. This gives a natural way to split the material between two midterms and a final. Study resources can be found here. Free Online resources (e.g. Videos) can be found at the online Math Lab.


1. Limits and Derivatives

2. Differentiation Rules

3. The First and Second Derivatives
