COURSE DESCRIPTION
Calculus is a branch of mathematics studying
continuous changing quantities. This course
combines many of the trigonometric, geometric,
and algebraic techniques needed to prepare
students for the study of calculus and
strengthens their conceptual understanding of
problems and mathematical reasoning in
solving problems. These standards take a
functional point of view toward those topics.
Graphing calculators may be used throughout
the course to aid in the solution of the problem.
This course promotes achievement of the
California State Calculus standards.
