• Calculus*
  • CLASS DESCRIPTION
     
    The class begins with a review of precalculus.  Next we study limits, the basis of calculus.  Most of the year is spent on differential calculus, but we do hope to touch on integrals as well.  The purpose of this calculus class is to prepare students for a basic understanding of calculus topics before they schedule calculus class in college.  It is not intended to replace a college-level calculus class as our "Pitt Calculus" course does, so this class goes at a more leisurely pace.  We hope to introduce eBook learning to the students in this class, as they are surely going to encounter eBooks in college.  Students will study calculus from a free eBook online rather than an actual hardback textbook issued to them to carry.
