This course is intended for students who have a thorough knowledge of analytic geometry and elementary functions in addition to college preparatory algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. The purpose of the course is to understand the student for advanced placement in calculus. This course is a rigorous treatment of the topics of elementary calculus. Algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions will be studied, with emphasis on their properties and limits. Differential calculus will be studied and will include defining the derivative, taking the derivatives of functions, and applying the derivative to related rates problems and maxima minima problems.
The aims of this course are:
Upon the successful completion of this course, students should be able to:
Upon the successful completion of this course, students should be able to: After taking this course, students will be confident in their problem-solving and reasoning abilities. They will be able to demonstrate the ability to relate calculus concepts to their graphical, numerical, and symbolic representations.
