Whether you should take calculus or business calculus usually depends on your college, your major, and your future plans. In some business degree programs, it is a requirement while in others it may be that either business calculus or calc 1 can be taken. You can find information about this by talking to an advisor, a professor in the business department, or in the college catalog.
Take classes, earn certificates or two-year degrees, apply to one of OC’s four-year programs, or work with one of the college’s university partners. Featuring a class-tested, innovative approach, Business Calculus is an ideal resource for courses in applied mathematics for business. Students’ hatred for business calculus is well-documented. But its difficulty is largely because the explanations provided by typical textbooks/professors are completely horrible. Determine the values of definite integrals using the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and areas. Construct equations for tangent lines and find average and instantaneous rates of change from symbolic, graphical and numerical information.

In doing so, it is important to keep in mind the limitations of those models we create. To simplify writing out expressions and equations involving functions, a simplified notation is often used. We also use descriptive variables to help us remember the meaning of the quantities in the problem. Learn more about our academic programs, campus life, and financial aid.
