13 Mathematics with Calculus 1

13MC1
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr S. Kumar

This course is designed for those students who intend to study Mathematics, Engineering, 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 theory of differentiation and integration will be enhanced and the application of these processes to real world situations will be included. Pupils can expect to explore important topics such as trigonometric graphs and conic sections by modelling through internal assessments.
