  • Determine whether a given relation is a function or not, and whether an inverse function exists.
  • Find limits and determine whether given functions are continuous or not
  • Differentiate functions and use derivatives to graph functions, solve extremal problems and related rates problems.
  • Integrate functions using substitution, integration by parts, partial fractions and reduction formulae.
  • Find areas, volumes, length of curves, averages and work done.
  • Solve simple first order differential equations and higher order linear homogeneous differential equations.
  • Determine whether a given sequence or series converges or not.
  • Determine where a given power series converges absolutely, converges conditionally or diverges.
