Advanced Placement Calculus AB
Prerequisite: Completion of Math Analysis with Trigonometry and permission of instructor.
Length: Year.
Objectives: This course is equivalent to a onesemester introductory calculus course as taught at college level. Topics include:
• differentiation of algebraic and transcendental functions
• integration, of algebraic and transcendental functions
• methods of integration
• applications of differentiation and integration
Requirements: Completion of daily written assignments is required. On both assignments and tests, an emphasis is placed on mature and thoughtful work with clear, complete and thorough presentation of solutions. Keep all assignments, notes and tests in a binder. Four weeks of intensive review in April prepare you for the class final, followed by the A.P. exam in the second week of May. Students passing the A.P. exam may receive college credit and placement into a higher level Math class when he or she enters college.
Extra Help: While developing independent study habits is very important, you are encouraged to help each other in the classroom and in study groups.
Textbook: Calculus of a Single Variable, 6th Ed by Larson, Hostetler and Edwards; pub Houghton Mifflin, ISBN 087.
Grading: Grades are based upon unit tests and final exams.
Quarter 1: Five 100 point unit tests
Quarter 2: Four 100 point unit tests, 100 point semester final
Quarter 3: Five 100 point unit tests
Quarter 4: Four 100 point cumulative tests, 100 point postAP project
Since this is an AP course, you receive the benefit of weighted grades: an A is 5 GPA points, a B is 4 GPA points and a C is 3 GPA points. Students receive an assignment sheet for each unit, listing the assignments for that unit.
Advanced Placement Calculus BC
Prerequisite: Completion of Honors Math Analysis with Trigonometry and recommendation of instructor, or completion of Advanced Placement Calculus AB.
Length: Year.
Objectives: This course is equivalent to the first two semester calculus courses taught at college level. Topics include:
• differentiation of algebraic and transcendental functions
• integration of algebraic and transcendental functions
• applications of differentiation and integration,
• differential equations
• integration techniques, L'Hôpital's rule, improper integrals
• infinite series
• conics, parametric equations and polar coordinates
Requirements: Completion of daily written assignments is required. On both assignments and tests, an emphasis is placed on mature and thoughtful work with clear, complete and thorough presentation of solutions.
Extra Help: While developing independent study habits is very important, you are encouraged to help each other in the classroom and in study groups.
