Course Overview:
Calculus AB is designed to be taught over a full high school academic year. It is possible to spend some time on elementary functions and still cover the Calculus AB curriculum within a year. However, if students are to be adequately prepared for the Calculus AB examination, most of the year must be devoted to topics in differential and integral calculus. These topics are the focus of the AP Exam.
Course highlights:
work with functions represented in a variety of ways: graphical, numerical, analytical, or verbal. They should understand the connections among these representations. understand the meaning of the derivative in terms of a rate of change and local linear approximation and they should be able to use derivatives to solve a variety of problems. understand the meaning of the definite integral both as a limit of Riemann sums and as the net accumulation of change and should be able to use integrals to solve a variety of problems. understand the relationship between the derivative and the definite integral as expressed in both parts of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. communicate mathematics both orally and in well-written sentences and should be able to explain solutions to problems.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:

This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Calculus is extremely difficult, but you can get college credit.
Course highlights:
This course teaches students about the many applications of calculus in the world. People use calculus every day to figure out how fast the weather is changing, how to best reduce the effects of flooding, etc. It makes a difference, to know these things.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do your work! And make sure to practice because practice really does make perfect.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The course was nice and very enjoyable to me and as well as to those who are good in mathematics.
Course highlights:
You would learn various mathematics concepts like integration, geometry, calculus, trigonometry and statistics as well as probability.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
To do a lot of practice and form groups
