What topics will I learn about in Calculus AB?
This course stresses the dual goals of conceptual understanding of calculus and fluency in the procedures that accompany the understanding of calculus concepts. The following major ideas will be introduced during the year: limits, derivatives, and integrals of polynomial, rational, exponential, and trigonometric functions and their inverses. Students will develop the skills necessary to apply calculus in solving a variety of practical problems. They will discover the importance of calculus to modern science and technology, and will learn to apply elementary calculus to the definition and solution of physical problems. Instruction is integrated with a biblical worldview to help students explore and discover God’s purpose in creating the beauty and precision of the mathematical sciences. The purpose of this course is to prepare students to take the Advanced Placement® Calculus AB examination given each spring, for which placement and/or credit may be awarded at the college level if a qualifying score is obtained. Content of this course corresponds to the College Board’s guidelines for Calculus AB. Course goals include:
Instruction will be given primarily through pre-recorded lectures. Reinforcement will take place through assigned practice, as well as a variety of opportunities for assistance and feedback, including weekly online class discussions.
