HS Course Offerings: Math
AP Calculus, grade 121.0 credit, Teacher recommendation required
Prerequisites: Accelerated Algebra I, Accelerated Algebra II, Accelerated Geometry, Pre-Calculus
Following the College Board's suggested curriculum designed to parallel college-level calculus courses, AP Calculus AB provides students with an intuitive understanding of the concepts of calculus and experience with its methods and applications. These courses introduce calculus and include the following topics: elementary functions; properties of functions and their graphs; limits and continuity; differential calculus (including definition of the derivative, derivative formulas, theorems about derivatives, geometric applications, optimization problems, and rate-of-change problems); and integral calculus (including anti-derivatives and the definite integral).
