The first two to three weeks we will finish Differentiation, then move onto Integration.

In mathematics, an integral assigns numbers to functions in a way that can describe displacement, area, volume, and other concepts that arise by combining infinitesimal data. Integration is one of the two main operations in calculus, with its inverse, differentiation, being the other.

The year plan is as follows:

  • Trigonometry - internal assessment 91575 4cr
  • Differentiation - external assessment 91578 6cr
  • Integration - external assessment 91579 6cr
  • Complex Numbers - external assessment 91577 5cr

I suggest all students revise basic algebra as it is the language we will be using in this course to learn more complex ideas.
Maybe create a khanacademy login and practise - you can join the rest of the class on there with this code 5E2XNC
These are the two key areas to be well practised at.
