Self-Enroll into this class if you are a junior with at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and are interested in becoming a member of the Verndale Honor Society.

This class meets Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MNTC) Goal Areas 2 (critical thinking) and 4 (mathematics/logical reasoning). This course includes limits and continuity, derivatives, definite and indefinite integrals of algebraic, trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic functions, and applications of the derivative and definite integral.  At the completion of this course you should be able to perform the following competencies

  • Understand precalculus concepts including algebraic functions and graphs
  • Explore concepts of limits and continuity and discovery the derivative through the limit and the tangent line problem
  • Perform basic differentiation techniques and find extrema
  • Find area using Riemann sums and integration
  • Utilize the fundamental theorems of Calculus to evaluate definite integrals
  • Perform numerical integration and integration by substitution
  • Differentiate and integrate logarithmic and exponential functions
  • Use the chain rule, product and quotient for differentiation and use implicit differentiation
  • Utilize the Mean Value Theorem and Rolle’s Theorem
  • Use differentiation for graphing, related rates, differentials and optimization
  • Perform basic integration techniques
