AP Calculus AB
The content of this course is determined primarily by the AB-level syllabus
of the program in Advanced Placement Mathematics, published by the
College Entrance Examination Board. An introduction to the basic concepts
of limits, continuity, differential and integral calculus, with applications to
velocity, accelerations, curve sketching, related rates, and max/min problems
will be given. This course will focus on the theoretical developments and
derivation of each of these topics. Techniques of differentiation and integration
will be studied and applied. Students are required to take the Advanced
Placement Exam in the spring. It is possible for students to earn up to three
college credits by performing well on the AP Calculus AB Exam.
Graphing calculator required.
