Calculus AB/BC

This course emphasizes a multi-representational approach to calculus with concepts, results and problems being expressed graphically, numerically, analytically and verbally.  Throughout the course, participants will discuss the philosophy of AP Calculus, classroom pedagogy, classroom evaluation, the AP exam scoring, student motivation, and. topics brought up be the participants. The AB and BC groups will be separated to cover the specific content pertinent to each course.  We will review past exams as well as the free-response questions from the current exam and multiple choice questions from the most recent released exam.  Class discussions will drive much of the class. Participants will leave with many valuable resources.  The new Curriculum Framework and changes in the topics covered in both courses for the 2016-17 school year will be fully discussed.
