Course title

Academy Finite/Brief Calculus



Course description

The purpose of this class is to cover topics not seen elsewhere in the high school math curriculum in order to give students a broader math background and to then build on the foundations of Academy Algebra and Calculus Foundations in order to expect a high degree of success in Academy Calculus the following year. The first semester covers Finite Math topics not covered elsewhere such as simplex tableaus; present value and future value problems; involving mortgages; Markov chains and game theory and more advanced probability topics such as Bayes formula and expected value. Second semester covers Brief Calculus limits; derivatives; and integrals as well as beginning calculus involving trigonometry such as related rates; maximization; parametric and polar equations. In this class students will be challenged with problems they will not be able to solve automatically and learn techniques to use in those situations.†
