Review of Calculus for Math SL teachers (CANCELLED)
This Level 3 workshop is intended for those teachers who need a review of the calculus topics that are required in the Math SL course. Participants will review the calculus topics covered in the Math SL syllabus, concentrating on the topics of limits, derivatives and their application to solving optimization problems, behavior of functions and integration. Participants will find the definite integrals and show their application in the finding the area under and between two curves, volumes of revolution, and solutions to kinematic problems. Participants will also have the opportunity to tie the material all together and have concerns addressed. Throughout the session, emphasis will be placed on ways these topics can be presented to students in the classroom.
