AP Calculus BC

AP Calculus BC is a college level course equivalent to a full year of calculus at most universities.  The course is based on the College Board’s Advanced Placement Calculus BC curriculum, whose purpose is “developing understanding of the concepts of calculus and providing experience with its methods and applications.”  The course will emphasize that most calculus concepts and problems can be viewed or represented several ways:  graphically, numerically, algebraically and verbally.  Graphing calculators are tools for moving between these representations, so we will use them regularly.  The primary purpose of this course is to prepare students for the AP Exam as well as future college math courses  Students will be required to work the problems from a graphical, numerical or analytical point of view and present their solutions both verbally and in writing. Students are expected to perform college level work.
