Foothill College debuts its first honors math course this fall with *MATH 1AH: Honors Calculus I *and *MATH 1AHP*: *Honors Calculus I Seminar*, which are taken concurrently. The first honors course of its kind to be offered by a California Community College, both courses explore concepts of applied and theoretical mathematics, and expect students to gain deep conceptual understanding in both areas.

You’ll study the topics featured in a standard beginning calculus class, as well as unique topics, including proofs of major theorems, indifferential calculus, and proofs of limits and derivatives. In addition to completing a major project that applies calculus concepts, you’ll learn to use mathematical keyboarding software to complement project and assignments.

To register for *MATH 1AH* and *MATH 1AHP*, you must first apply to the Foothill College Honors Institute. To review Honors Institute eligibility requirements and apply for the program, access foothill.edu/hon.

Both courses transfer to the CSU and UC systems.
