AP Calculus AB
AP Calculus AB is equivalent to a firstsemester college calculus course. Topics include functions, limits and continuity, derivatives, and integrals. The course will focus on applying the skills and concepts of calculus to modeling and solving problems across multiple representations. It includes specific preparation for the AP AB Calculus exam. Students will practice APstyle questions, to familiarize themselves with the format and grading techniques.
Calculus AB is the equivalent of one semester of college Calculus and is usually taken by students pursuing majors in the social sciences, life sciences, math and physical science. With the elimination of SAT Math subject test, more students would like to take an AP Calc AB exam as a validation of their math education. Calculus AB covers less material and is conducted in a slower pace than Calculus BC.
Students access class materials at any time most convenient for them, including video lectures, assignments, answer keys to assignments, and more through Canvas and College Board AP Classroom. All class materials are available 24/7. Assignments are given at the beginning of each week.
Cost
$625.
Prerequisite:
All students should have successfully completed Geometry and Precalculus. If you have not completed the prerequisite, please sign up for AP Precalculus class or SelfPaced Honors Precalculus class. In particular, you should understand the properties of linear, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, and piecewisedefined functions and know how to graph these functions and solve equations involving them. You should also be familiar with algebraic transformations, combinations, compositions, and inverses for general functions. If you are unsure, you can take the diagnostic test.
