Credits: 1
Term: On Demand, Year Round 2017-18
Prerequisites:

Student must be approved by the department head prior to enrollment. Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, & Pre-Calculus or Trigonometry/Analytical Geometry



Note: It is the expectation of VTVLC that students take the Advanced Placement Exam (AP® Exam) to receive Advanced Placement credit. Students need to be approved by the department head by completing and returning this AP Course Recommendation Letter Form.

Course Description:

Students must take the Advanced Placement Exam (AP® Exam ) in order to receive Advanced Placement credit. Comparable to college and university calculus, this course helps prepare you for the Calculus AB Advanced Placement* exam. Study limits, continuity, differentiation, integrated algebraic, trigonometric, and transcendental functions, and the applications of derivatives and integrals.
