The courses are designed to for the college-bound student, and when taken together will cover much of the same content as a first semester college calculus class. Calculus A topics covered include: Properties of limits, intermediate value theorem, derivatives, chain rule, derivatives of products and quotients, related rates, integrals, Riemann sums, the fundamental theorem of calculus. Calculus B Topics covered include: calculus of exponential and logarithmic functions, l’Hospital’s Rule, critical points and points of inflection, integration by parts. Passing the Advanced Placement Exam in May will allow students to earn college credit. Students who choose to not take the AP Exam will be able to work on the Calculus B material through the last day of the academic year in June.

In addition to an online text, students will access both teacher created and Web based resources. Learning will take place through a variety of methods, including the following: auto-graded assignments designed to give you immediate feedback, Sketchpad activities to help you discover and explore topics, and semester projects. Chapter tests and quizzes will also be given.

Course materials: The Geometer's Sketchpad software; online edition of Calculus (Key Curriculum Press); other selected web sites
