543 Advanced Placement Calculus AB (Grade 11,12)

This is a critical analysis of the theories and foundations of Calculus. Topics include the basic concepts and applications of limits and functions, differentiation and integration. The object of this course is to give exceptional math students the opportunity to study college Calculus while still in high school. A summer assignment is to be completed and submitted on the first day of class. The A.P. Exam is mandatory. Qualifying students may take this course for St. John’s University credit.

Prerequisite: Algebra 2 Honors or Pre-Calculus Honors and teacher recommendation.

Credit: 1

Instructor: Ms. Dawn Duggan

 

544 Advanced Placement Calculus BC (Grade 12)

This course builds on the foundation built in AP Calculus AB. Topics include a more in-depth look at topics from AP Calculus AB as well as infinite series and polar, parametric, and vector-valued functions. The A.P. Exam is mandatory.

Prerequisite: AP Calculus AB.
