Full Description
This semester 2 course is a preview of first-year university calculus and will follow the provincial Calculus 12 curriculum. There is no provincial examination for this course. The intent is not to prepare students for the Advanced Placement Calculus examination. University results show that students who have taken Calculus 12 do significantly better in first-year university where calculus is a required course for many programs. Topics include Limits, Differentiation, Derivatives of Trigonometric and Logarithmic Functions, Curve-sketching, Antiderivatives, Integration, and Problems involving maximum/minimum, rate, and growth/decay. A graphing calculator (e.g. Texas Instrument 83 Plus) is required.

This is a semester course and students are required to complete assignments from online lessons at home but write tests in a classroom. Face-to-face and online help is available from the teacher if needed after school hours at Palmer Secondary. Students can finish the course in as short as a few months or apply to extend the course till June.
