This course is designed for students planning to take the AP Calculus AB exam, or who want to improve their calculus skills before taking the course. The course covers limits, derivatives, and integrals, and is intended to prepare students for the rigors of the AP exam and college-level calculus.
After completing the course, students are expected to reach the following goals:
Students will have a strong understanding of the content needed for AP calculus, including trigonometry, vectors, partial fractions, limits, continuity, sequences and series, and polar functions. We will also identify specific weaknesses of the students who enroll and target them directly.
|1||Unit Circle Trig/Trig Equations|
|2||Graphing Trig Functions/ Graphing with transformations|
|3||Parametric Equations and Vectors|
|4||Polar Equations and Graphs|
|5||Sequences and Series|
|6||Rational Functions/Fraction Decomp|
|7||Limits and Continuity|
|8||Solving Limits Algebraically|
|9||Definition of a Derivative|
Students and their parents will receive brief feedback after each class, via Teachworks, regarding the student’s general participation in class. Students will also receive feedback on graded assignments via email.
