In this course, students will study rates of change, along with limits of a function. Formal differentiation and its application to real world problems will be included. Students will study integration to find the area under a curve and its application to real world problems. Calculus will be presented from a graphical, numerical, and symbolic point of view. The goal is for students to obtain a strong conceptual understanding to accommodate diverse applications. A significant focus will be on preparation for the Advance Placement exam. A graphing calculator is required for this course. The SES Mathematics Department strongly recommends the TI-83 or TI-84 series.
