No calculus based physics?

Recommended Posts

Is there a reason why there is no calculus in physics (not even in HL)? I really don't want to memorize formulas, calculus just makes the concepts so much more elegant especially through derivations :(

There is very little memorization in Physics HL. Most equations are provided on the exams. If you know the content well enough whether algebra- or calculus-based will not make a difference. That being said, students who do not take integral calculus (such as SL math studies students) will be at a slight disadvantage.
