Calculus 12 will give students a basic understanding of calculus which will help those who wish to go into post-secondary math, science, engineering, business or computer science programs.
The course focuses on four big ideas. The concept of a limit is foundational to calculus. Differential calculus develops the concept of instantaneous rate of change. Integral calculus develops the concept of determining a product involving a continuously changing quantity over an interval. Derivates and integrals are inversely related.
Students require a solid understanding of algebra, trigonometry and logarithms to be successful in this course and should have achieved a good grade in pre-Calculus 12 before pursuing this course.
