- polar coordinates and integration of polar curves

- fractional derivatives

- series and Taylor series

All of these should be quite ok for an interested high-school student...

Hmm. Fractional calculus sounds pretty cool. But any cool applications associated with that?

If you're looking for applications, then the other two topics sure have a lot of applications. But they might be less cool than fractional calculus

If you already know basic calculus, perhaps your project could be to write an essay that places some of those calculus concepts on a firmer, more rigorous groundwork (ie, introduce yourself to basic real analysis). Apostol's Calculus Vol.1 does this quite well.

provides a good detailed explanation of the applications. It doesn't really look too hard though.
