MATH 140E Calculus with Engineering Applications I (4)

MATH 140E enriches the regular MATH 140 syllabus by adding weekly applied problems, a small number of laboratory sessions, and a major group project for which both written and oral presentation is required. It is a rigorous calculus course with additional motivation and applications in the engineering sciences. The core material is the same as MATH 140.

MATH 140E provides an alternative to the regular MATH 140 for engineering majors. This course addresses the additional needs of engineering majors with regard to problem formulation and the interpretation of their mathematical solutions.

The prerequisite for the course is MATH 022, 026; or MATH 040, 041; or satisfactory performance in the mathematics proficiency examination. Six sections of this course are offered every Fall semester.

Course evaluation is based on quizzes, weekly applied problems, two midterms, a group project, and a final examination.
