This course is an introduction to calculus geared toward those students who want to take calculus but do not want to endure the fast-paced nature and rigors of AP Calculus-AB. This course follows the same curriculum as AP Calculus-AB, but certain topics are excluded from the study. 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, Riemann sums, the fundamental theorem of calculus, and areas between curves. Use of a graphing calculator is an important 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.
