Calculus

This course covers topics relating to both differential and integral calculus. Throughout the course, emphasis is placed on the student realizing that calculus offers a significantly different way of looking at many of the math equations which describe the natural world. In differential calculus, this is achieved by investigating the significance of the slope of a curve, primarily for algebraic expressions, and how this knowledge can help clarify the relationship between variables such distance, velocity and acceleration. In integral calculus, the significance of the area under a curve is explored, in particular, its application to motion, areas, and volume problems.
