AP® Calculus AB Course Description
This course is designed for students who are ready for the challenge of learning AP® Calculus AB content. Taking the AP® Calculus AB exam for university credit is not a requirement of this course.
The prerequisite for this course is PreCalculus with Trigonometry including a clear understanding of the unit circle. Calculus is the study of change and motion. Our problems "move" which makes the study of Calculus exciting and engaging. We discuss limits, derivatives, applications of the derivative, integrals and their applications, and an introduction to differential equations. We will explore calculus concepts through engaging realworld problems and learn how to justify mathematical conclusions. We follow the same learning objectives as the College Board AP® Calculus AB course, which equates to a semester long Calculus I course at most colleges and universities. Even though we cover a college level course over an entire school year, the pace is still brisk. This is a challenging course that uses a college level textbook, written by James Stewart, which includes all the necessary concepts to prepare for a rigorous college calculus class and/or the AP exam.
If your student chooses to take the Advanced Placement test in May, students can receive usually 34 hours of college credit for Calculus I upon a successful exam. Colleges and universities vary on what they accept as a "passing" score and how many hours they grant. Often it is dependent upon the student's intended major.
**There will be a short summer assignment that needs to be completed prior to the start of the course.
