This course is open to those who have proven their excellence in math. The AP-AB Calculus course consists of a full academic year of work in calculus. Topics that are covered include elementary functions, limits, differential calculus with applications and integral calculus with applications. The AP syllabus is equivalent to college level Calculus I. Additional topics are covered after the AP exam. Problems are approached using the “rule of four”; algebraically, verbally, graphically, and numerically. All students are required to take the AP/AB exam in May. This exam is not part of the course but a passing score (3-5) usually earns a semester course credit and placement in college.
