Calculus

This course is a comprehensive study of single-variable calculus. It builds on the topics covered in Pre-Calculus and is the basis for theorem and problem solving that are covered in high school calculus class. It is essential for students looking to further their education with AP Calculus. Specific topics covered include limits, continuity, derivatives, integrals, power series, plane curves, derivative integral series, and differential equations.‍
