Hi parents and students! This is an introduction to what you’ll be needing to know by the end of the first Calculus semester. My courses cover all of the common core requirements (the syllabus for semester 1 is here, and semester 2 is here!) and prepare my students to think critically. Not only do I want your student to know the material in my class, I want them to succeed in all future classes and opportunities. Please try out this sample test to see what your child will be learning this semester!
