  • AP Calculus

    AP Calculus is an advanced math class designed for students seeking to further their knowledge in mathematics. The course spans over three terms and covers Calculus I and parts of Calculus II.

    AP Calculus Syllabus

    The AP Calculus AB course is designed to provide students with an AP experience equivalent to that of a college course in single variable calculus. This course will develop a students understanding of the concepts of calculus and provide experience with its methods and applications. The course includes limits, differentiation and integration with problem solving and applications. Problems will be expressed graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. This three term course is intended for students who have a thorough knowledge of college preparatory mathematics including algebra, geometry, and pre-calculus.

     

    Instructional Procedures & Support

    Students are expected to bring all supplies to class every day including the textbook, a notebook, pencil and graphing calculator. Written assignments will be given daily and should be completed before the next class period. Homework will be checked for completeness at the start of each day. Late work will not be accepted unless it is due to an excused absence. Quizzes will be given daily following a short discussion of the previous day’s assignment. Tests will be given approximately once per week. Students will be allowed to retake one test per term with the condition that all assignments leading up to that test have been completed. Test retakes must be completed before or after school prior to the next test (approximately one week).
