This single variable calculus course will cover the entire AP® Calculus AB curriculum with specific focus on the “A” content of the AP® Exam. Students practice conceptual reasoning and learn how to present a solution algebraically, geometrically, numerically, and tabularly. Students develop a clear understanding of calculus concepts using AP® Exam multiple-choice and free-response questions as checkpoints and guidelines. By the end of the course, students will be able to read and interpret graphical data accurately, use words to explain their reasoning, and provide context for final answers. Major topics include limits, derivatives, related rates, optimization, integrals, volume, and their applications. This personalized course features discussions, reflections, and projects that will help students master skills in an engaging way. It is designed for the ambitious math student looking to either develop a strong foundation in calculus, preview the AP® Calculus AB curriculum over the summer, or advance to AP® Calculus BC the following school year.
Summer courses are for-credit opportunities for ambitious students to get a jump on the next academic year. Students participating in these courses should plan to devote 20 hours per week for eight weeks to their course. Students will receive grades and comments in these classes, which are the equivalent of year-long, high-school level courses. Because of the pacing and intensity of for-credit summer courses, there is little flexibility; students must be available and have internet access for all eight weeks of the course.
