These are the statements describing what students need to learn:

- introduction to the concept of a limit. Derivative interpreted as gradient function and as rate of change
- increasing and decreasing functions. Graphical interpretation of f'(x)>0, f'(x)=0,f'(x)<0
- derivative of f(x)=ax
^{n}is f'(x)=anx^{n-1}, The derivative of functions of the form fx=ax^{n}+bx^{n-1}+… where all exponents are integers - tangents and normals at a given point, and their equations
- introduction to integration as anti-differentiation of functions of the form f(x)=ax
^{n}+bx^{n-1}+.... Anti-differentiation with a boundary condition to determine the constant term. Definite integrals using technology. Area of a region enclosed by a curve y=f(x) and the x-axis, where f(x)>0 - values of x where the gradient of a curve is zero. Solution of f'(x)=0. Local maximum and minimum points
- optimisation problems in context
- approximating areas using the trapezoidal rule
