**Course Concept**

An introduction to differential calculus starting from first principles to applications such as optimization and kinematics. Following differential calculus, we will lead into integration, again from first principles, and cover various methods of integration as well as applications such as volumes, areas, and kinematics.

**Pre-requisites are:** Pre-Calculus: functions and trigonometry.

**Why take this course?**

Calculus is integral to develop an intuition for math and sets a strong foundation for future math studies and applications. For those in the IB Diploma Programme, the study of Calculus will give them a head start to Grade 12 and allow them to explore interesting and complicated topics for Extended Essays and Math Explorations.

Furthermore, students who wish to strengthen their math foundations for further study in fields such as economics, business, computer science etc. and want a refresher or have not learned calculus in depth, should also take this course to ensure they have a head start on university level mathematics and help GPA levels in their first year at university.

**This course is recommended for:**

- IBDP students who have completed one year of Mathematics at the higher level or standard level
- Those who need to complete math requirements at the university level and want a head start on that content.

*(Aligns to Calculus I and II at the university level)*
