    Calculus is a fourth mathematics course option for students who have completed PreCalculus or Accelerated Pre-Calculus. It includes problem solving, reasoning and estimation, functions, derivatives, application of the derivative, integrals, and application of the integral. Instruction and assessment should include the appropriate use of technology. Topics should be presented in multiple ways, such as verbal/written, numeric/data-based, algebraic, and graphical. Concepts should be introduced and used, where appropriate, in the context of realistic phenomena.

    Academic Honesty:

    Each student is expected to do his/her own work on all tests and final exams without any assistance from any outside source unless specifically authorized by the instructor.

    If it is determined by me that you have violated this policy, you will receive a ZERO (0) for that assignment.  If you have any questions about this policy, please consult your student handbook.

    Pre-Calculus is a fourth mathematics course designed to prepare students for calculus and other college level mathematics courses. High school course content standards are listed by conceptual categories including Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Conceptual categories portray a coherent view of high school mathematics content; a student’s work with functions, for example, crosses a number of traditional course boundaries, potentially up through and including calculus. Standards for Mathematical Practice provide the foundation for instruction and assessment.

     Method of Evaluation:

    Tests, Quizzes/ Performance Tasks (40%)

    Daily/Homework (40%)         

    Final (20%)
