TO: 2016 AP Calculus BC Students FROM: T. Ericson, R Garcia, AP Calculus BC Teachers As you probably know, the students who take AP Calculus AB and pass the Advanced Placement Test will place out of one semester of college Calculus; those who take AP Calculus BC and pass the Advanced Placement Test will place out of two semesters of college Calculus. Because Calculus BC covers two semesters, you will be learning Calculus twice as fast as the students who take Calculus AB. In order to have enough time to learn the material of two college- level courses, we will start learning Calculus as soon as possible when school begins and will not be able to spend time reviewing the material you learned in Algebra, Geometry, and Precalculus. Attached is a summer homework packet, which will be due the first day of Calculus class in August. The material in the packet should be material you learned in Algebra II and Precalculus. You will turn in the packet the first day of Calculus class, and it will count as a daily grade . On approximately the third day of class, you will take a test on the material in the packet . My recommendation is that you look over the problems in the packet when you receive it but that you wait until the week before school starts to work the problems so that you will remember the material very well when school starts. All of the AP Calculus AB and BC classes at Clements will be using the TI-INSPIRE CAS Version graphing calculator. The Calculus teachers feel that it is the best calculator available. You will be expected to have a TI-INSPIRE CAS Version the first week of school or its equivalent. I am looking forward to seeing you in Calculus in August. CALCULUS BC SUMMER HOMEWORK This homework packet is due the first day of school. It will be turned in the first day of Calculus class and will count as a daily grade. You will take a test on the material in the packet on the third day of school.
