Developing Understanding ๐Ÿง 

Unit 3 builds upon understanding from Unit 1 and Unit 2 of AP Calculus.ย The two main components of Calculus are differentiating and integrating. Of these two, differentiation is the focal point of the first few units in Calculus.ย ย 

This unit, in particular, emphasizes the analysis of functions, continued correct application and understanding of function notation, and the recognition of โ€œinnerโ€ and โ€œouterโ€ functions within composites. Students will continue to learn how to differentiate in different ways with new techniques and strategies.
