    15825 AP CALCULUS AB

    GRADE PLACEMENT: 11, 12
    CREDIT: 1
    PREREQUISITES: ALGEBRA 1, GEOMETRY, ALGEBRA 2, AND PRE-CALCULUS IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED ON ALL COURSE WORK

    AP Calculus AB is primarily concerned with developing the students’ understanding of the concepts of calculus and providing experience with its methods and applications. This course emphasizes a multi-representational approach to calculus, with concepts, results, and problems being expressed geometrically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. The connections among these representations also are important. Students will use technology to reinforce the relationships among the multiple representations of functions to confirm written work, to implement experimentation, and to assist in interpreting results. This course is to prepare students for the AP Exam in AB Calculus as administered by the College Board. Successful completion of AP Calculus AB is equivalent to the first semester of college-level Calculus. Depending on the local placement policies of the college and grade achieved on the AP Calculus AB exam, students can receive credit for the first semester of college calculus.


    15830 AP CALCULUS BC

    GRADE PLACEMENT: 11, 12
    CREDIT: 1
    PREREQUISITES: ALGEBRA 1, PRE-AP GEOMETRY, PRE-AP ALGEBRA 2, AND PRE-AP CALCULUS IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED

    AP Calculus BC is primarily concerned with developing the student’s understanding of the concepts of calculus and providing experience with its methods and applications. This course emphasizes a multi-representational approach to calculus, with concepts, results, and problems being expressed geometrically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. The connections among these representations also are important. Students and teachers will use technology to reinforce the relationships among the multiple representations of functions, to confirm written work, to implement experimentation, and to assist in interpreting results. Calculus BC is an extension of Calculus AB rather than an enhancement. Common topics require a similar depth of understanding. AP Calculus BC includes all the topics covered in the AB course as well as Calculus with polar, vector, and parametric functions and series. This course will prepare students for the AP exam in Calculus BC as administered by the College Board. Successful completion of AP Calculus BC is equivalent to the first two semesters of college Calculus at most universities and colleges. Depending on the local placement policies of the college and grade achieved on the AP Calculus BC exam, students can receive credit for the first two semesters of college Calculus.


    15850 AP STATISTICS

    GRADE PLACEMENT: 12
    CREDIT: 1
    PREREQUISITES: ALGEBRA 1, GEOMETRY, and ALGEBRA 2

    AP Statistics is equivalent to a one-semester, introductory, non-calculus based, college course in statistics. The purpose of the AP Statistics course is to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing and drawing conclusions from data. This AP course is an excellent option for any student who has successfully completed Algebra 2, regardless of the student’s intended college major. Since Algebra 2 is the prerequisite course, AP Statistics will usually be taken in either the junior or senior year. Students planning to take an AP science course in their senior year will benefit greatly from AP statistics in their junior year. Students must be willing to do independent research. A main function of this course is to prepare for the AP Exam in Statistics. Students who successfully complete the course and the AP exam may receive college credit for a one-semester introductory college statistic course.
