1 AP Calculus BC Course Overview Topic Description AP Calculus BC Course Details In AP Calculus BC, students study functions, limits, derivatives, integrals, and infinite series This document details the topics and subtopics that f under each unit and chapter. Teacher Role Prerequisites Course Length Two semesters Throughout the course students write and work with functions represented by written descriptions, mathematical rules, graphs and tabular data. Throughout the course, students develop and exercise skills using the graphing calculator to solve problems, experiment, interpret results, and support their conclusions. Students learn the meaning of the derivative and apply it to a variety of problems, while developing a deeper understanding of the meaning of the solutions to those problems. Students study integrals and learn the relationship between the derivative and the definite integral, using written work and graphing technology to explore and interpret this relationship. Students learn how calculus is used to model realworld phenomena by using functions, differential equations, integrals, and graphing technology to solve problems, support their solutions, and interpret their findings. Students communicate about mathematics through written work and discussion forums with peers that are monitored by the teacher. Asynchronous and synchronous discussion activities throughout the course provide multiple opportunities for students to interact with each other and share ideas about math problems and problemsolving strategies. Discussions also include opportunities for students to work in sm groups where they collaborate on specific assignments. The detailed syllabus outline below indicates where these discussions occur and what the topics are. In this course, the teacher hosts and facilitates weekly synchronous sessions with students who are enrolled. In these regularly scheduled sessions, students communicate with each other and the teacher about course content and assignments. These synchronous sessions ow for timely verbal dialogue about AP Calculus BC content and course assignments. As needed, the teacher guides students through appropriate explanations of assigned problems and solution sets. Helpful guidelines for these sessions are provided to the teacher. Course content and suggested texts and reference materials align with the College Board framework for AP Calculus BC. All students enrolled in this course are assigned to a "section" with a qualified teacher who is responsible for ensuring student success and addressing student questions, problems, and concerns. In addition, each student must have a mentor available at their school or at home to support the student and make sure assignments are completed in a timely manner.

2 Course Materials This online course offers instructional content that incorporates required topics in a balanced and comprehensive sequence. Online digital instruction includes text, figures, graphic elements, carefully structured problem sets, exploration guides, and graphing calculator instructions to convey and highlight important information and provide students with specific applications of concepts they are studying. The required virtual content for this course is as follows: Thomas, Paul et al. (editors). AP Calculus BC, K12 digital edition. Herndon, VA: In addition, students should have this required (printed) textbook: Larson, Ron, and Bruce H. Edwards. Calculus of a Single Variable, AP Edition (9th ed.), Belmont, CA: Brooks/Cole, Cengage Learning, [ISBN: ] The following additional (optional) textbooks may be used to supplement the material presented in this course: Finney, Ross L., Franklin Demana, Bert Waits, and Daniel Kennedy.

3 The following details describe different types of instructional activities in this course. Activity Type Learn Video Lectures Explore and Using a Graphing Calculator Description Primary instructional content presented online to teach new concepts through multimedia and interactivity. Paper and pencil activities are included in Explore activities. Graphing calculator activities are also included (these appear in bold in the course outline below). In these Explore activities, students are guided through the key steps for using calculators to explore, experiment, analyze and interpret findings, and support their conclusions For example, in the graphing calculator activity titled Taking More Intervals, students learn how to use the SEQ function to find a Riemann sum, and then use this functionality to test conjectures about the effect that using different interval sizes has on resulting area approximations. Discussion Students discuss topics in threaded discussion boards (these discussions appear in bold in the course outline below). Teachers monitor and participate in these discussions, and students receive credit for appropriate participation. Some discussions include group activities that require studenttostudent communication about calculus strategies and concepts. For example, in the Discussion titled Handson Solids, students create and compare solids with crosssections that are circles, squares, or rectangles. Within peer discussion groups, students observe, interact, and compare crosssections and then explain their methods for calculating volume to each other. Practice Try It Problem Set Assessment Quiz Review Lesson Unit Test Students answer online, computerscored (ungraded) questions to help them synthesize what they have learned in a lesson. This helps them think about the content before using it in a problem set. Every lesson with Video Lectures includes six to ten Try It questions. Every lesson with Video Lectures has a Problem Set, so students can work offline to practice what they have learned. One Problem Set is provided for each lesson as a PDF. Each lesson also includes recommended assignments for each of the three recommended textbooks. Most lessons include a quiz, which is a computergraded assessment. Review Lessons cover the material presented in a unit or over a semester. Calculator skills are also reviewed in Review Lessons to help prepare students to use them on tests and exams. A unit test is an assessment of the material covered in a given unit. Each test is modeled after the AP Exam. Students complete certain portions of these tests using graphing calculators but are prohibited from using them on other parts of these tests. Each test includes a computergraded, multiplechoice section and a freeresponse section that is teacher graded using a detailed rubric. AP Calculus BC, page 3
4 Semester Exam A comprehensive Semester Exam is administered at the end of the semester. Students are required to use graphing calculators to solve problems, experiment, interpret results, support their conclusions, and verify handwritten work. The semester exam is modeled after the AP Exam, so students complete certain parts of the exam using graphing calculators but are prohibited from using them on other parts of the exam.
