This is a preparation course for the AP Calculus-AB exam as established by the College Board. The focus is on limits, the derivative, the integral, and the application of an interaction between these three broad concepts. More specifically, topics include a review of functions, continuity, differentiability, extrema, concavity, related rates, optimization, Riemann sums, the fundamental theorem of calculus, areas between curves, volumes of solids, and separable differential equations. Use of a graphing calculator is an essential component of this course. This course is taught in the Math Lab setting, in which students are guided through the course material and learning resources at their own pace.
The prerequisite is Pre-Calculus.
