MATH IVA: CALCULUS
This is a one-year in-depth study of differential and integral calculus of functions of one real variable. Students will use the calculus, i.e. limits, various methods of differentiation and integration, effectively in their solution of problem in physics, economics, business, the life sciences, and the physics of sports.
Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus A and Departmental Approval
MATH IV: PRECALCULUS
A primer course for calculus exploring linear, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions. The graphing calculator is introduced and used throughout the course to operate with real-life data and applications. Students are taught to examine a situation from numerical, graphical and analytical perspectives. The last trimester deals with analytic trigonometry: fundamental identities, solving trigonometric equations, sum and difference formulas, Law of Sines and Law of Cosines. The course ends with sequences, series, sigma notation, and multivariable systems of equations and inequalities.
