AP Calculus AB

1 Unit
Grades: 11, 12

AP Calculus AB is designed to be the equivalent of a first semester college calculus course devoted to topics in differential and integral calculus. The course features a multi-representational approach to calculus, with concepts, results, and problems expressed graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. Exploring connections among these representations builds understanding of how calculus applies limits to develop important ideas, definitions, formulas, and theorems. A sustained emphasis on clear communication of methods, reasoning, justifications, and conclusions is essential. In May, students should plan to take the AP Calculus AB exam for possible college credit (each college determines credits earned). A fee is charged to take the AP exam.
