AP Calculus AB

This course is intended for students who have a thorough knowledge of analytical geometry and elementary functions in addition to algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. This course is a rigorous treatment of the topics of elementary calculus. Algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions will be studied, with an emphasis on their properties and limits. Differential calculus will be studied and will include defining the derivative, taking the derivative of functions, and applying the derivative to related rates problems and maximum-minimum problems. The following topics of integral calculus will be studied: Antiderivatives and their applications; definite integrals and their applications, including area under the curve, velocity and acceleration, and volumes of solids of revolution; and techniques of integration. Students interested in mathematics, or the science and engineering disciplines should take this course. This class covers 1 semester (usually 4-5 credit hours) of college calculus.
