11315 AP Calculus AB
2 semesters, 1 credit per semester
Calculus 1, Advanced Placement and College Credit
This is a rigorous college level calculus course that is the basis for many fields of study in college including the further study of mathematics or science. Topics include limits, continuity, derivatives and integrals. An emphasis is placed on graphical interpretation and understanding of calculus concepts and on the application of those concepts in problems from many fields of study. Calculus AB is equivalent to a first semester college Calculus Course. Choosing between AP Calculus and AP Statistics should be based on possible college majors. For some areas of study like social sciences and humanities Statistics is more appropriate. For other areas like science, technology, or engineering, Calculus is more appropriate. For college majors in business, both Calculus and Statistics are required at the college level. AP Calculus and AP Statistics may be taken concurrently. Successful completion of the Advanced Placement Calculus Test in the spring can result in one semester of credit from many colleges and universities. A TI83+ or TI 84 graphing calculator is required. This course may be offered for college credit.
11545 AP Calculus BC
2 semesters, 1 credit per semester
Calculus 1&2, Advanced Placement and College Credit
Calculus BC is a fasterpaced alternative to Calculus AB; common topics require a similar depth of understanding. The curriculum covered in Calculus BC will equate to a full year of a typical college calculus course. The course will emphasize a multirepresentational approach to calculus, with concepts, results and problems being expressed geometrically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. The connections among these representations will be emphasized. All topics from AP Calculus AB will be included along with more advanced topics. Choosing between AP Calculus and AP Statistics should be based on possible college majors. For some areas of study like social sciences and humanities Statistics is more appropriate. For other areas like science, technology, or engineering, Calculus is more appropriate. AP Calculus and AP Statistics may be taken concurrently. For college majors in business, both Calculus and Statistics are required at the college level. Successful completion of the Advanced Placement Calculus Test in the spring can result in one or two semesters of college credit from many colleges or universities. Technology is an integral part of this course and a TI83+ graphing calculator will be required. This course may be offered for 8 semester hours of credit as M211, Calculus 1, and M212, Calculus 2, through Indiana University.
11600 Multivariable Calculus
2 semesters, 1 credit per semester
Calculus 3, College Credit
Multivariable Calculus continues the study of Calculus by expanding many of the topics covered in AP Calculus BC to three or more variables. Topics include multivariable functions, vectors, differentiation, integration, and different coordinate systems include polar, cylindrical, and spherical. A TI83+,TI84, or TI89 calculator is required for this class. This course may be taken for 4 semester hours of credit as M261, Multivariable Calculus, through Ivy Tech Community College.
