Calculus AB

AP 507.103 | Online | TBA


This AP Calculus online course is designed to maximize the learner experience, providing relevant AP content and pedagogy through meaningful engagement – all focused on best practices for preparing your AP students for success. This session will help teachers to effectively teach an AP Calculus AB course and prepare their students for success on the AP exam. Participants will review the content, themes, and structure of the AP Calculus AB curriculum and focus on effective teaching strategies and learning activities that will lead to their students' success on the exam. Calculus AB is primarily concerned with developing the students’ understanding of the concepts of calculus and providing experience with its methods and applications. The course emphasizes a multi-representational approach to calculus, with concepts, results, and problems being expressed graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. Through the use of the unifying themes of derivatives, integrals, limits, approximation, and applications and modeling, the course becomes a cohesive whole.  We will examine effective ways to engage students in both virtual and in-person settings, including how to effectively use break out groups in both settings.  The course will provide information and strategies to help teachers prepare their students to gain in-depth understanding of theoretical ideas from discovery type projects and, hopefully, to perform well on the AP Calculus exam.
