This is an introductory course in single variable calculus. Students practice conceptual reasoning and learn how to present a solution algebraically, geometrically, numerically and tabularly. Students develop a clear understanding of basic calculus concepts. By the end of the course, students will be able to read and interpret graphical data accurately, use words to explain their reasoning, and provide context for final answers. Major topics include limits, derivatives, integrals and their applications. This personalized course features discussions, reflections and projects that will help students to master skills in an engaging way. It is designed for the ambitious math student looking to solidify their foundation before advancing from Pre-Calculus to AP® Calculus BC, or for a student looking to preview the calculus curriculum and its applications and progress their studies over the summer.
Summer courses are for-credit opportunities for ambitious students to get a jump on the next academic year. Students participating in these courses should plan to devote 25-30 hours per week for eight weeks to their course. Students will receive grades and comments in these classes, which are the equivalent of year-long, high-school level courses. Because of the pacing and intensity of for-credit summer courses, there is little flexibility; students must be available and have internet access for all eight weeks of the course.
