Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr S. Kumar

This course is designed to prepare the foundation for Level 3 Calculus and for those students who intend to study Mathematics, Engineering, Architecture, Science and similar technological careers at tertiary level. 

Calculus develops practical skills in differential and integral calculus. It is intended to illustrate various applications of calculus to technical problems. The rules of differentiation will be introduced, and methods of differentiating various algebraic functions will be developed. Further methods of algebraic manipulation, non-linear graphs and trigonometry are also explored.

*10MTA* students study this course, but can choose to repeat if necessary.
