MA0304 AP Calculus AB
This demanding and challenging course, AP Calculus AB, is the equivalent of a college-level first semester course in calculus. The course covers all topics in The College Board's AP Calculus AB curriculum. Learners will cover functions, limits, derivatives and their applications, transcendental functions and special integration methods and their applications. During the semester, learners will use multiple representations, such as graphical, numerical, analytical, and verbal to foster a more complete understanding of Calculus. Technology will be used to reinforce the relationships among the multiple representations of functions, to confirm written work, facilitate experimentation, and assist with interpretation of results. Students registering for AP Calculus AB in the fall are committed to the yearlong sequence taking AP Calculus BC in the spring. *Note: This course is designed to be a two-course sequence.
