Diploma in Ap calculus is a free online course specially put together to take you through various concepts and applications of different theorems in calculus. The great mathematical geniuses of 17th century Europe used the techniques of calculus to solve ancient problems of calculating complex areas. This course specifies the process for testing the second derivative to determine if a critical value represents a maximum or a minimum point. It proceeds to explain the step-by-step procedures for finding to limits through tables and graphs. You will learn about the limit theorems used to calculate the sum, difference, product and quotient of functions as well as for powers and roots. Oftentimes, the most difficult part of solving an optimization problem in calculus is the translation from a written description of the problem to a mathematical description of the problem. One will need to practice a lot or have a certain level of experience to solve them. This is the same case for the process of integration. Integration goes from the easier aspect to the more difficult aspect. However, the content in this course will make your learning process easy, detailed and interesting.

The study of limits and its closely related concept of continuity are an essential part of the study of calculus. Although understanding the concept of a limit is pretty easy, calculating limits can be quite demanding if the functions do not conform to customary patterns. This course will take you through calculating both straightforward and more challenging limit problems. It covers a variety of methods that can be used to differentiate both explicit and implicit functions. Exponential and logarithmic functions occur frequently in mathematical models for economics, social science, as well as in natural sciences. For example, exponential plays an important role in modelling population growth and the decay of radioactive materials. It is essential for all fields that use mathematical models. If you want to get a good understanding of these functions, this course comes highly recommended. In this course, you will learn about the derivatives of exponential and logarithmic functions. The course explores some of the more frequently used trigonometric integrals as well as the trigonometric substitutions useful in integrating certain binomials. Is it possible to use a Riemann sum to estimate the area between a given curve and the horizontal axis over a particular interval? Yes, it is! In the sections that follow, we cover in detail the Riemann sum, trapezoids approximation method, sigma notations and its formulas.

Furthermore, In the last century, many algorithms were developed by numerical analysts to solve higher-order differential (and partial differential) equations. We will look at some of the theories behind first-order differential equations as well as some applications of first-order differential equations. This course covers in detail methods for determining whether or not an infinite series converges. It states the divergence theorem and explains the divergence test, comparison test, the p – test as well as ratio test. It describes the arithmetic sequence, geometric sequence, binary sequence and power sequence. It also describes the triangular and harmonic sequence. Infinite sequences are an endless progression of discrete objects, especially numbers. Sometimes, we come across a function that requires more than one formula in order to obtain the given output. An example of this is the piecewise-defined functions. It provides an opportunity to explore the relationship between one-sided and two-sided limits of a function. The application of calculus spans across so many career parts therefore this course is for everyone with an interest in the working knowledge of calculus.
