Intro to Calculus - 0949
Prerequisite: Pass Pre-Calculus; 75% or below in Calculus AP Track; Teacher Recommendation
This course is intended to introduce seniors to many calculus topics prior to college. The main topics of Pre-Calculus will be reviewed, and then concepts such as limits, derivatives and integration will be introduced.
Calculus is a field of mathematics based on the idea of limits. Differential calculus deals with the rate of change of a function. Integral calculus deals with the concept of area.
Calculus courses provide students the opportunity to get an introduction to college mathematics and possibly earn college credit in mathematics while in high s chool. These courses are intended to accelerate the math skills of students who are interested in a career in mathematics, engineering, medical, business, and other mathematical-based careers. Students intending to take AP Calculus-Based Physics must also take AP Calculus AB or BC.
Calculus AP Track- 0935
Prerequisite: 81% or above in Honors Algebra II-Trig; Teacher Recommendation
This course is a continuation of Honors Algebra II - Trigonometry and is designed for sophomores and juniors who intend to take AP Calculus AB and/or BC. Some Pre-Calculus topics and differential calculus for polynomial functions, rational functions, and trigonometric functions will be covered. Calculus AP Track is aligned with future AP Calculus courses and is intended to provide exposure to AP preparation, testing and topics. Students will not receive college credit for this course and students are not required to take the AP exam; however students may voluntarily take the AP exam and should contact the instructor for additional information.
