AP® Calculus AB

AP® Calculus AB is roughly equivalent to a first-semester college calculus course devoted to topics on differential and integral calculus. The course covers topics in areas such as concepts and skills of limits, derivatives, definite integrals, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. The course develops students’ mastery of the concepts of calculus with an emphasis on the connections and interrelationships between graphical, numerical, analytical and verbal representations of each problem and topic they encounter. Students primarily use the TI-83 and TI-84 graphing calculators to solve problems, experiment, interpret their results, and support their conclusions. (Full year, 1 credit)
