The AP® Calculus BC course is a standard course in the calculus of a single variable. Students learn conceptual reasoning, presenting a solution algebraically, geometrically, numerically or verbally. Students develop a clear understanding of the concepts, as well as their applicability in real world situations. By the end of the course, students are able to read and interpret graphical data accurately; use words to explain their reasoning and provide context for final answers; and understand that they know how to learn online. All topics in the AP Calculus BC course are covered, and additional topics as time permits. Major topics include limits, continuity, derivatives and applications, integrals and applications, first order linear differential equations, inverse trigonometric functions, transcendental functions, infinite series, Taylor polynomials, vectors, parametrically defined functions, and polar coordinates. This personalized course features discussions, reflections, and projects to help students master skills in an engaging way.
WHAT STUDENTS SAY
"My view of math changed because of this course. I used to view math as completely separate from my other school subjects, but after doing unique activities like writing a haiku about infinity I have realized that it can be connected to other subjects."
WHAT STUDENTS DO
Learning is an active process at One Schoolhouse. Students design, create and apply. And, they engage with classmates and connect with their teachers through discussions, video conferences, and projects. Specifically, in this class students will:
