Teacher:

This is a college level course that is designed to prepare students to be successful on the College Board’s Advanced Placement Calculus AB Test. This course introduces limits, differentiation, and integration of functions. Students will find and evaluate finite and infinite limits graphically, numerically, and analytically. They will find derivatives using a variety of methods including The Chain Rule and Implicit Differentiation. They will use the First Derivative Test and The Second Derivative Test to analyze and sketch functions. Each unit contains exam preparation content for the AP Calculus AB exam. Students will be required to have a graphing calculator for this course. A suggested type will be recommended by the teacher.
