AP Calculus AB

Credits: 1

This course is equivalent to the first semester of college calculus. The topics include limits, derivatives, integrals and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Emphasis will be placed on conceptual understanding: reasoning with definitions and theorems, connecting concepts, implementing algebraic/computational processes, connecting multiple representations, building notational fluency, and communicating. This course follows the AP curriculum and leads directly to the Advanced Placement Calculus AB exam.


Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus (Accelerated) grade ≥ 85; with departmental approval; AP Calculus AB Prep is required for students who will not continue to AP Calculus BC.
