Dear Students and Parents:
Welcome to Intro to Calculus.† This course is for students who have completed the entire math curriculum including Trigonometry/Pre-Calculus and who intend on taking calculus in college.† While it is without the theoretical depth, breadth, and rigor of an AP level Calculus course, topics will still include graphs, polynomial and radical functions, rational functions, trigonometric functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, limits, derivatives, applications of derivatives, integrals and applications of integrals.
It is hoped that this course does not create extra stress for its already over-extended students.† It is not state tested and is intended mainly to relieve the potential stress of their first year college courses.† Thus, a grading plan will be formulated by class members during the first week of classes.
I encourage parents to contact me with any questions or concerns.† The best way to reach me is by e-mail at email@example.com.† You can also reach me by telephone at 667-2292 extension 243 or you can generally find me in my classroom, Room 9, before and after school.
Letís have a good time exploring Calculus.
