Grade 11

This course is the prerequisite for those students planning on taking AP Calculus in their senior year. Topics include analytic geometry, advanced algebra, matrix algebra, techniques of graphing, transcendental and algebraic functions, advanced trigonometry, limits and an introduction to calculus. This class is currently being offered from SCCC (MAT 167). Students take a local final exam in June.

1 Year – 1 Credit

Grade 12

This course includes all topics from the AP Calculus course and selected topics from the BC course published by the College Entrance Exam Board. Students take the Advanced Placement Exam in May. Many students receive college credit after their chosen college evaluates their scores. Topics include derivatives and integrals of polynominals; algebraic, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions and limits. Application problems include graphing, velocity, acceleration, related rates, maximum and minimum values, mean value, areas, volumes, growth and decay and work. After the exam in May, students study topics from advanced integration.

Grade 12

This course, in the calculus of a single variable, includes
limits, continuity, derivatives of algebraic and transcendental
functions, implicit differentiation, related rates, the Mean Value
Theorem, antiderivatives, definite integral, and the Fundamental
Theorem of Calculus. The course introduces applications of
differentiation such as curve sketching and optimization problems as
well as applications of integration such as area and average value.
