INTRODUCTION TO HIGH SCHOOL CALCULUS CONCEPTS
Entering Grades 9-12 – This course will introduce students to limits, derivatives, differentiation and integration. Students will receive guided exposure to concepts of calculus so they are better prepared for calculus courses during the academic year. Students will improve their understanding of equations, graphs and proofs, including the study of vectors and polar coordinates, advanced inequalities and series. Students will transition from advanced applications of key precalculus concepts to more traditional calculus problems. Students will study and apply a combination of graphical, numerical and symbolic representations as they gain familiarity with each of the key calculus concepts throughout the course.
Students should bring a pencil, eraser, small ruler, graph paper and TI-84 (or equivalent) calculator daily.
