Math credit – Grade Level: 11, 12 – year-long, 1.0 credit
Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus with a B or above and teacher recommendation.
This course includes the study of derivatives, anti-derivatives, differentiation, integration, the definite and indefinite integral, and applications of calculus. Review topics: elementary functions; properties of functions and their graphs; limits and continuity; differential calculus (including definition of the derivative, derivative formulas, theorems about derivatives, geometric applications, optimization problems, and rate of change problems); and integral calculus (including anti-derivatives, the Definite integral, Riemann sums, and related applications of motion).
The Honors section will expand the breadth of differentiation and integration techniques, which includes partial fractions, L’Hôpital’s Rule, trigonometric substitution, surface and volume of revolution, improper integrals, slope-fields, approximation techniques, inverse functions, and basic differential equations. Honor students will be encouraged to take the Calculus A/B Advanced Placement Exam.
