## Pre-Calculus

**Pre-Calculus 1 and 2:** These courses cover advanced topics in algebra including theory of equations, linear algebra, complex plane, polar coordinates, etc.

## AP Calculus AB

AP Calculus AB is roughly equivalent to a first semester college calculus course devoted to topics in differential and integral calculus. The AP course covers topics in these areas, including concepts and skills of limits, derivatives, definite integrals, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. The course teaches students to approach calculus concepts and problems when they are represented graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally, and to make connections amongst these representations. Students learn how to use technology to help solve problems, experiment, interpret results, and support conclusions. Course Details

## AP Calculus BC

Building enduring mathematical understanding requires understanding the why and how of mathematics in addition to mastering the necessary procedures and skills. To foster this deeper level of learning, AP Calculus BC is designed to develop mathematical knowledge conceptually, guiding you to connect topics and representations throughout the course and to apply strategies and techniques to accurately solve diverse types of problems. Calculus BC includes all topics covered in Calculus AB plus additional topics, and is designed to qualify you for placement and credit in a course that is one course beyond what’s granted for Calculus AB.
