This is the most challenging course of mathematics offered at the high school level. Students that successfully complete AP Calculus AB or BC will be well prepared to pursue mathematics at the university level.

This course is both difficult and time consuming. Any student taking this class must be prepared to work hard to keep up with the fast pace of the material. We will cover Units 1-3 in semester 1, and units 4-6 in semester 2, culminating with the AP exam on Wednesday, May 07 2014. Unit 3 covers integrals, which is the most challenging and largest subject for this course. As a result we may not finish all of Unit 3 before the end of the semester.

Semester 01: Unit 1: Review and Limits

Unit 2: Derivatives

Unit 3: Integrals

Semester 02: Unit 4: Differential Equations

Unit 5: Sequences and Series

Unit 6: AP Test Review

Technological competency is a central focus of this course. Students will learn to use a graphing calculator, and they will be expected to use graphing calculators in order to succeed in this class and on the AP Exam. Any graphing calculator can work, but we will be using TI-83 Plus calculators in class. Students are strongly recommended to use this specific model so that the class can work together. Any student that does not wish to purchase one can borrow one from the school library for use throughout the year.
