Section #: 2527 (CALC)
The material covered includes the study and application of differentiation and integration, and graphical analysis including limits, asymptotes, and continuity. This course is typically equivalent to one semester of college calculus. The AP course moves at a faster pace and students can receive college credit by passing the AP exam at the end of the year.
Calculus expands a student’s knowledge of topics like functions, graphs, limits, derivatives, and integrals. Additionally, students will review algebra and functions, modeling, trigonometry, etc. Calculus is made up of five strands: Limits and Continuity; Differentiation; Applications of Derivatives; Integrals; and Applications of Integrals. The eight Process Standards for Mathematics apply throughout the course. Together with the content standards, the Process Standards prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.
