Topics include the limit of a function, the derivative of algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions, and the definite integral and its basic applications to area problems. Applications of the derivative are covered in detail, including approximations of error using differentials, maximum and minimum problems, and curve sketching using calculus. Three lecture and two computer laboratory hours per week. Prerequisite: “C” or higher in MH114 or the equivalent.
This program allows undergraduate students to attend the University of West Alabama for approximately three years and then transfer to the School of Forestry at Auburn University. On completion of the requirements of the two institutions, the student receives a Bachelor’s degree in Conservation and Field Biology from UWA and a Master of Natural Resources with a certified Wildlife Biologist concentration from Auburn.
This preparation is ideal for the student who is at home in the natural environments of Alabama and the South. The background in field and conservation biology acquired at UWA provides a solid foundation in biological and ecological principles, while the wildlife biology training received at Auburn prepares the student to step into a job-rich field working with the tremendous diversity of wildlife in the region.
The dual degree program in Conservation and Field Biology/Wildlife produces students prepared to step into leadership roles in conserving and managing natural wildlife populations with an eye toward sustainability. It provides opportunities for students to grow through close contact and interaction with outstanding faculty. The field is growing rapidly and offers a tremendous variety of career opportunities in both the public and private sectors.
