What is Calculus?
The world we live in, and nearly everything we see and do in it, is in a constant state of change.
CALCULUS is the mathematical study of change, and it essential to gaining an understanding of our world.
Calculus has widespread uses in science, economics, and engineering and can solve many problems that algebra alone simply cannot. Calculus has two main components: differential calculus and integral calculus, both of which will be studied in this course.
This advanced placement course in calculus covers topics such as:
Information and Forms
No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess.
