Limits and their proporties.

Continuity of a function.

Velocity, acceleration, and other rates of change. The derivative and the differential of a function. Application of differentiation in real-life problems.

Approximation.

Optimization problems.

Cumulative change. The concept and properties of an integral, integration techniques. Applications of integration. Average value of a function.
