This course introduces students to the elements of differential and integral calculus with an emphasis on building upon and subsequently mastering skills learned in prior math courses. Students will use limits in their study of differential calculus and do a thorough examination of the tangent line problem. Students will apply differentiation techniques such as power, chain, product, and quotient rules. Once the techniques are mastered, students will apply their knowledge to authentic problems involving optimization. They will also explore applications of integral calculus, which include calculating the area under a curve and the fundamental theorem of calculus. This comprehensive course prepares graduating grade 12 students for college-level mathematics courses and younger students for AP Calculus AB.
