This course is intended for students who have a thorough knowledge of analytic geometry and elementary functions in addition to college preparatory algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. The purpose of the course is to prepare the student for advanced placement in college calculus. In this course:
In this course the student will
· Define and apply the properties of limits of functions. This will include limits of a constant, sum, product, quotient, onesided limits, limits at infinity, infinite limits, and nonexistent limits.
· State the definition of continuity and determine where a function is continuous or discontinuous. This will include continuity at a point; continuity over a closed interval; application of the Intermediate Value Theorem; and graphical interpretation of continuity and discontinuity.
· Find the derivative of an algebraic function by using the definition of a derivative. This will include investigating and describing the relationship between differentiability and continuity.
· Apply formulas to find the derivative of algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions and their inverses.
· Apply formulas to find the derivative of the sum, product, quotient, inverse, and composite (chain rule) of elementary functions.
· Find the derivative of an implicitly defined function.
· Find the higher order derivatives of algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions.
· Use logarithmic differentiation as a technique to differentiate non logarithmic functions.
· State (without proof) the Mean Value Theorem for derivatives and apply it both algebraically and graphically.
· Use L'Hopital's rule to find the limit of functions whose limits yield the indeterminate forms: 0/0 and infinity/infinity. A Calculus, these functions will also include functions whose limits yield the indeterminate forms: 0 to the 0th power, 1 to the infinity power, infinity to the infinity power, infinity minus infinity.
· Apply the derivative to solve problems, including tangent and normal lines to a curve, curve sketching, velocity, acceleration, related rates of change, and optimization problems.
