Course: AP Calculus AB, 1 st Semester Text: Calculus: Graphical, Numerical, Algebraic , Scott Foresman/Addison Wesley Cost: \$61.47 Prerequisite: Precalculus Curricular goals interwoven throughout the mathematics program are that students will: learn to communicate mathematically (QCC) learn to use mathematics in their daily lives (QCC) become proficient with appropriate computational tools and techniques (QCC) learn to reason mathematically (QCC) become mathematical problem solvers (QCC) These goals will provide the direction for assessment and instruction. Attainment of these goals is facilitated by the students’ demonstration of the following Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS). Chapter 2: Limits and Continuity (pp. 54-93) 15 days an intuitive understanding of the limiting process calculating limits using algebra estimating limits from graphs or tables of data understanding asymptotes in terms of graphical behavior describing asymptotic behavior in terms of limits involving infinity comparing relative magnitudes of functions and their rates of change understanding continuity in terms of limits geometric understanding of graphs of continuous functions (Intermediate Value Theorem and Extreme Value Theorem) derivative presented geometrically, numerically and analytically derivative interpreted as an instantaneous rate of change slope of a curve at a point tangent line to a curve at a point and local linear approximation instantaneous rate of change as the limit of average rate of change approximate rate of change from graphs and tables of values Chapter 3: Derivatives (pp. 94-175) 30 days estimate limits from graphs or tables of data derivative presented geometrically, numerically and analytically derivative interpreted as an instantaneous rate of change
