Calculus AB: First-Time (math 1247)
AB Calculus first timers is intended for those individuals who have not taught AP* Calculus or have been teaching AP* Calculus for less than three years. The course will review concepts of Calculus while focusing on the requirements for students to be successful on the Calculus AB exam. Much of the week will be spent looking at previous AP* exams and working the problems so that participants will get a sense of how the scoring works and how to help students earn the maximum number of points. The course will focus on the rule of four, looking at Calculus from numerical, graphical, algebraic, and verbal perspectives.
