AP® CALCULUS BC
The AP® Calculus BC course is a standard course in the calculus of a single variable. The goal is to teach conceptual reasoning, enabling students to present a solution algebraically, geometrically, numerically or verbally. Emphasis is placed not only on a clear understanding of the concepts, but also on their applicability in real world situations. All of the topics in the AP® Calculus BC syllabi are covered, as well as 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 student-centered course features discussions, reflections, and projects that help students to master the course material in an engaging way. Students enrolled in this course are thoroughly prepared to take the AP® exam in the spring.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Pre-Calculus or Calculus course covering natural logarithms, series / sequences, parametric / polar functions, vectors, and limits
