AP® Calculus BC Course Description
Our HSML course is designed for students who have had Calculus I or AP® Calculus AB and are ready for the challenge of learning AP® Calculus BC (Calculus II) content. Taking the AP® Calculus BC exam for university credit is not a requirement of this course.
Our learning objectives are primarily focused on the AP® Calculus BC (Calculus II) content, which equates to a semester long Calculus II course at most colleges and universities. Our course begins with further exploration of L'Hospital's Rule and additional integration techniques. Then we will move our discussions to sequences and series including Taylor and Maclaurin Series and learn how to represent functions as power series. Euler's Method, logistic growth models, parametric curves, vectors, polar curves will also be discussed. 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 AP® Calculus BC test in May, students can receive usually 68 hours of college credit for Calculus I and Calculus II upon a successful exam. The AP® Calculus BC exam covers BOTH AB and BC content. Students will receive an AB score AND a BC score. 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.
