Differentiate between functions and non- functions 2. Sketch graphs of elementary functions manually and/or using graphing calculator 3. Determine the inverse of a function 4. Recognise patterns and relationships 5. Find the first and second derivatives of functions 6. Apply the concepts of derivatives and integrals in problem solving Synopsis This course focuses on the key concepts of Calculus which includes functions and graphs, basic understanding of limits and limit theorem, derivatives and integrals, and patterns and relationships. At this point, students are able to find the first and second derivatives of functions and minimum and maximum points of graphs. The applications and use of technology is also emphasized through graphing calculator and software such as Geometer’s Sketchpad to sketch and interpret the graphs of functions. Kursus ini memfokuskan kepada konsep utama dalam Kalkulus; fungsi dan graf, kefahaman asas mengenai had dan teorem had, ‘derivatif’ dan ‘integral’ serta pola dan perhubungan. Pelajar boleh mencari derivatif pertama dan kedua bagi fungsi serta titik minimum dan maksimum bagi graf. Penggunaan dan aplikasi teknologi dijelaskan melalui kalkulator grafik dan perisian seperti Geometer Sketchpad untuk melakar dan membuat interpretasi graf fungsi.
