to:Calculus BC

This  is  a  course  in  single-variable  calculus.  Our textbook is Art of Problem Solving Calculus, by David Patrick.

This course is approved by the College Board as an AP Calculus BC class.

The philosophy of this course is that students develop more by learning to solve problems they have not seen before, as opposed to offering repeated drills that students can memorize their way through. Students will gain a fundamental understanding of single-variable calculus, beyond the level of rote calculation and will learn how to apply calculus techniques to solve difficult problems.

At the end of the course all student will take AP Calculus BC exam. The exam date is Tuesday May 15, 2018 at 8am. We will finish all the curriculum topics by the spring break (March 30th, 2018) and will concentrate on review and test prep during the last five weeks.
