Sir Isaac Newton invented his version of calculus in order to
explain the motion of planets around the sun. Today, calculus is
used in calculating the orbits of satellites and spacecrafts, in
predicting population sizes, in estimating how fast prices rise,
in forecasting weather, in calculating life insurance premiums,
and in many other areas.
The topics covered are: Differential Calculus, Integral Calculus, Sequences and Series, Parametric Curves and Polar Coordinates, Multivariable Calculus, and Differential Equations.
The following are solutions to sample questions of the CollegeBoard AP/AB and AP/BC Calculus examination
The study of differential calculus is concerned with how one quantity changes in relation to another quantity. The central concept of differential calculus is the derivative.
