No Prerequisites: None Co-requisites: None Integrated (Academics / CTE)? No Grade levels: 11th, 12th Course learning environment: Classroom Based Course Description Course overview: Calculus is an in-depth study of functions, graphs, limits, derivatives, definite integrals, antiderivatives, differential equations and real-world applications of differentiation and antidifferentiation. Concepts will be explored graphically, numerically, algebraically, and verbally. Subtopics include products, quotients, the calculus of logarithmic functions, growth and decay, plane and solid figures, algebraic calculus of motion. Technology tools such as graphing calculators and other graphing applications will be used regularly in this course.
