1 AP Calculus BC Scoring Guidelines The College Board The College Board is a missiondriven notforprofit organization that connects students to college success and opportunity. Founded in 9, the College Board was created to expand access to higher education. Today, the membership association is made up of more than,9 of the world s leading educational institutions and is dedicated to promoting excellence and equity in education. Each year, the College Board helps more than seven million students prepare for a successful transition to college through programs and services in college readiness and college success including the SAT and the Advanced Placement Program. The organization also serves the education community through research and advocacy on behalf of students, educators, and schools. The College Board is committed to the principles of excellence and equity, and that commitment is embodied in all of its programs, services, activities, and concerns. The College Board.

2 SCORING GUIDELINES Question t (minutes) 4 9 W() t (degrees Fahrenheit) The temperature of water in a tub at time t is modeled by a strictly increasing, twicedifferentiable function W, where W() t is measured in degrees Fahrenheit and t is measured in minutes. At time t =, the temperature of the water is F. The water is heated for 3 minutes, beginning at time t =. Values of W() t at selected times t for the first minutes are given in the table above. (a) Use the data in the table to estimate W ( ). Show the computations that lead to your answer. Using correct units, interpret the meaning of your answer in the context of this problem. (b) Use the data in the table to evaluate W () t. Using correct units, interpret the meaning of () W t in the context of this problem. (c) For t, the average temperature of the water in the tub is (). W t Use a left Riemann sum with the four subintervals indicated by the data in the table to approximate (). W t Does this approximation overestimate or underestimate the average temperature of the water over these minutes? Explain your reasoning. (d) For t, the function W that models the water temperature has first derivative given by W () t =.4 tcos(.6 t). Based on the model, what is the temperature of the water at time t =?

4 SCORING GUIDELINES Question 3 Let f be the continuous function defined on [ 4, 3] whose graph, consisting of three line segments and a semicircle centered at the origin, is given above. Let g x be the function given by g( x) = f( t). (a) Find the values of g ( ) and g(. ) (b) For each of g ( 3) and g ( 3, ) find the value or state that it does not exist. (c) Find the xcoordinate of each point at which the graph of g has a horizontal tangent line. For each of these points, determine whether g has a relative minimum, relative maximum, or neither a minimum nor a maximum at the point. Justify your answers. (d) For 4 < x < 3, find all values of x for which the graph of g has a point of inflection. Explain your reasoning.

This occurs at x = and x =. g ( x) changes sign from positive to negative at x =. Therefore, g has a relative maximum at x =. : considers g ( x) = 3 : : x = and x = : answers with justifications g ( x) does not change sign at x =. Therefore, g has neither a relative maximum nor a relative minimum at x =. (d) The graph of g has a point of inflection at each of x =, x =, and x = because g ( x) = f ( x) changes sign at each of these values. : { : answer : explanation The College Board.

6 SCORING GUIDELINES Question The rate at which a baby bird gains weight is proportional to the difference between its adult weight and its current weight.
