Prerequisite: 2 Pre-calculus credits or instructor approval AP Calculus is designed to provide a thorough introduction into differential and integral calculus. It is comparable to the first year calculus course taught at some colleges and universities. Students who enroll in the course have the goals of getting a preview of calculus before college and/or acquiring sufficient skills and knowledge of the subject to enter a college mathematics program level higher than beginning calculus.
The overall objective of the course is to prepare students for the advanced placement test in calculus. Most colleges and universities grant college credit for scoring well on this exam. AP Calculus corresponds to MAT 211 in the DMACC course guide.
