By attending this course and covering the topics you should be to achieve the following using a Casio graphic calculator:

Be able to understand and use the derivative of f(x) as the gradient of the tangent to the graph of y=f(x) at a general point (x,y). Understand and use the second derivative as the rate of change of gradient. Apply differentiation to find gradients, tangents and normals, maxima and minima and stationary points. Identify where functions are increasing or decreasing.

Evaluate definite integrals; use a definite integral to find the area under a curve.
