Calculus AB: 1st Time (MATH.1263)
About the Workshop
This course will consider topics typically included in the first year of a college-level calculus course. It will cover elementary functions, limits, and differential and integral calculus. Time will be set aside for discussion related to how to best set up a high school AP® Calculus course. Methods, teaching materials and facility with the graphing calculator will be emphasized. Students will be actively engaged in problem solving, lesson design and discussion of the AP® program.
We will also focus on the changes to the AP® Calculus syllabus that will be implemented in the 2016-2017 school year and tested in May 2017.
