Class information

This AP Calculus course is designed with the intent for students to incorporate the concepts of all previous math courses and expand upon these concepts with the implementation of Limits. Emphasis is placed upon the multi-representational approach to calculus where problems and their solutions are explored and interpreted graphically, numerically, analytically and verbally. Students will also be required to explain their answers in written form and will be asked to compare their written response to the AP grading rubric and explain why they feel they should receive that grade. Students are required to use graphing calculators with the capabilities ascribed by the College Board: (apcentral.collegeboard.com). These calculators will be used in a variety of ways including multi-representation of equations (graphs and tables) and also for conducting explorations with various functions and how different values change the look of the function.

Students should develop a deeper understanding of very small and very large numbers and a variety of ways to represent them.

 


Representations should be used to model and interpret physical, social, and mathematical phenomena.

 


Mathematical thinking should be communicated coherently and clearly to teachers, peers, and others.

 


Students should be able to judge the meaning, utility, and reasonableness of the results of symbol manipulation, including those carried out by technology.

 


Functions should be analyzed by investigating rates of change, intercepts, zeros, asymptotes, and local and global behavior.

 


Students should be able to use the language of mathematics to express mathematical ideas incisively.
