What makes this course interesting?

  • Learn problem solving methods that you can apply across real-world problems involving theorems, definitions, and functions represented in different ways
  • Use technology to explore, experiment, interpret results, and support your conclusions

AP Calculus AB is roughly equivalent to a first semester college calculus course devoted to topics in differential and integral calculus. The AP course covers topics in these areas, including concepts and skills of limits, derivatives, definite integrals, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. You’ll learn how to approach calculus concepts and problems when they are represented graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally, and how to make connections amongst these representations. You will learn how to use technology to help solve problems, experiment, interpret results, and support conclusions.
