AP Calculus AB
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.
