AP Calculus AB (11315)
This is a rigorous college level calculus course that is the basis for many fields of study in college including the further study of mathematics or science. Topics include limits, continuity, derivatives and integrals. An emphasis is placed on graphical interpretation and understanding of calculus concepts and on the application of those concepts in problems from many fields of study. Calculus AB is equivalent to a first semester college calculus course. Choosing between AP Calculus and AP Statistics should be based on possible college majors. For some areas of study like social sciences and humanities, Statistics is more appropriate. For other areas like science, technology, or engineering, Calculus is more appropriate. For college majors in business, Calculus, Statistics, and Finite Mathematics are required at the college level. All students enrolled in this class will take the AP exam in May.
