AP Calculus BC
Welcome to the home page for AP Calculus BC. This course is an enhancement and extension of Calculus AB and provides a solid foundation in Differential and Integral Calculus and their respective theorems and applications. In addition, this course provides a grounding in infinite series and methods of mathematical modeling using infinite series. Passing the AP exam in May typically provides a student with 6-8 hours of college credit as it will be equivalent to taking Calculus I and II at most universities. The goal of this course is to provide a solid foundation in the basic theory and practice of calculus techniques as well as providing strong connections between the four ways to represent information: graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally.
The prerequisites for this course are 4 years of college preparatory mathematics. It is expected that students will have completed Algebra I, II, Geometry, and Pre-calculus before enrolling in this course. It is also expected that student possess a graphing calculator and some experience in its use.
