Calculus

This course covers differential and integral calculus, and is primarily concerned with developing students’ understanding of the concepts behind calculus and providing experience with its methods and applications. Instead of serving as a first-year college course (as in the case of an AP® course), this course is intended to be an introduction to the subject that will familiarize college students with Calculus I. The content covers several types of functions, including how they can be used in modeling data, the concept of limits and how it applies to derivatives, various techniques of differentiation and integration, and ways in which differentiation and integration can be applied to real-world problems. For applicable topics, technology is used as a time-saving device to evaluate derivatives and as an aid in understanding the concepts of calculus graphically. (Full year, 1 credit)
