1 AP Calculus BC Course Description: Advanced Placement Calculus BC is primarily concerned with developing the students understanding of the concepts of calculus and providing experiences with its methods and applications. The five major topics of this course are limits, differential calculus, integral calculus, polynomial approximations & series, and their applications. Parametric, polar, and vector functions will be studied in this course. All students will be required to analyze problems graphically, numerically, analytically and verbally in this course. The course content will follow the outlines set forth by the College Board and the state. All students will be required to TI89 series graphing calculator for this course. Course Prerequisites: All students enrolling in AP Calculus BC should have successfully completed AP Calculus AB. Textbook: Larson, Hostetler, Edwards. Calculus, 6 th Edition, Houghton Mifflin, 1998 AP Review Supplemental Workbook: Lederman, David.

2 Student Assessments: Exams will be given at the completion of a unit (typically at the end of a chapter). Most exams will span one 57 minute class period. Quizzes will be given during the coverage of the chapter, usually covering 2 4 sections of textbook material. These quizzes will be completed during one class period and some will be with the use of a graphing calculator and others will be without. AP Free Response will be assigned during the review period for the AP examination. All AP free response questions will be assigned to students to complete from the past five examination cycles. AP Multiple Choice will be review assignments from the D&S Marketing review workbook. Students will practice the multiple choice questions in these workbooks to help them prepare for the AP examination. Graded homework will usually consist of challenging problems that are assigned at the completion of a unit. Old AP questions will be given throughout the year as appropriate on quizzes and exams, as well as homework assignments. AP Calculus BC Page 2 of 17
3 AP Calculus BC: Course Outline All students take a full year of AP Calculus AB before enrolling in AP Calculus BC. Students will receive the complete AP Calculus BC course as well as several topics that are not covered in the course description. Students also have more time to explore the concepts and receive a better understanding of the concepts. For the purpose of this syllabus I have included my outline for Calculus AB first as a reference to the material covered during the first year of this two year course.

12 Applications of Integrals Appropriate integrals are used in a variety of application to model physical, (3.10, 4.1, 4.2, biological, or economic situations. Although only a sampling of applications 4.3, 4.4, 6.1, can be included in any specific course, students should be able to adapt 6.2, 9.5) their knowledge and techniques to solve other similar application problems. Whatever applications are chosen, the emphasis is on using the method of setting up an approximating Riemann sum and representing its limit as a definite integral. To provide a common foundation, specific applications should include using the integral of a rate of change to give accumulated change, finding the area of a region (including a region bounded by polar curves), the volume of solid with known cross sections, the average value of a function, and the distance traveled by a particle along a line, and the length of a curve (including a curve given in parametric form). Fundamental Theorem of Calculus Use of the Fundamental Theorem to evaluate definite intergrals (4.4) Use of the Fundamental Theorem to represent a particular antiderivative, (4.4) and the analytical and graphical analysis of functions so defined Techniques of Antidifferentiation Antiderivatives following directly from derivatives of basic functions (4.1) Antiderivatives by substitution of variables (including change of (4.5, 7.2, 7.5) limits for definite integrals), parts, and simple partial fractions (nonrepeating factors only) Improper integrals (as limits of definite integrals) (7.8) Applications of Antidifferentiation Finding specific antiderivatives using initial conditions, including (4.5) applications to motion along a line Solving separable differential equations and using them in modeling (5.6, 5.7) (in particular, studying the equation y ky and exponential growth) Solving logistic differential equations and using them in modeling (A.2) Numerical Approximations to Definite Integrals Use of Riemann sums (using left, right, and midpoint evaluation points) (4.2, 4.6) and trapezoidal sums to approximate definite integrals of functions represented algebraically, graphically, and by tables of values.

13 IV. Polynomial Approximations and Series Concept of Series A series is defined as a sequence of partial sums, and convergence is (Chapter 8) defined in terms of the limit of the sequence of partial sums.

Series of Constants Motivating examples, including decimal expansion (8.1) Geometric series with applications (8.2) The harmonic series (8.2) Alternating series with error bound (8.5) Terms of series as areas of rectangles and their relationship to improper (8.3) integrals, including the integral test and its use in testing the convergence of pseries The ratio test for convergence and divergence (8.6) Comparing series to test for convergence or divergence (8.4) Taylor Series Taylor polynomial approximation with graphical demonstration of (8.7) convergence (for example, viewing graphs of various Taylor polynomials of the sine function approximating the sine curve) Maclaurin series and the general Taylor series centered at x a (8.7) x 1 Maclaurin series for the functions e, sin x, cos x, and 1 x (8.10) Formal manipulation of Taylor series and shortcuts to computing Taylor (8.7, 8.10) series, including substitution, differentiation, antidifferentiation, and the formulation of new series from known series Functions defined by power series (8.8) Radius and interval of convergence of power series (8.9) Lagrange error bound for Taylor polynomials (8.7) AP Calculus BC Page 13 of 17
14 Curricular Requirement #1: AP Calculus BC: Evidence of Curricular Requirements The course teaches all topics associated with Functions, Graphs, and Limits; Derivatives; Integrals; and Polynomial Approximations and Series as delineated in the Calculus BC Topic Outline in the AP Calculus Course Description. This curricular requirement is met and on the five previous pages the entire Calculus BC topic outline was reproduced and the section or supplemental unit where it is covered is denoted. In addition, some topics that are not in the Calculus BC Topic Outline are also covered in this course. Examples of these topics include but is not limited to three dimensional vectors, partial derivatives and double integration. Curricular Requirement #2 This course provides students with the opportunity to work with functions represented in a variety of ways graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally and emphasizes the connections among these representations. Example #1: Students are first introduced to limits numerically, then graphically, then analytically. Students will construct tables of values, then graph the function to see if the two answers agree. During the next class the analytical method is introduced and the three methods are compared. Students are encouraged to verbalize their explanations and answers in class on a daily basis. Example #2: To find the area under the curve the students are exposed to several approximation techniques prior to learning how to evaluate the definite integral algebraically. Examples of this would include problems of the following nature: Problem #1: (Numerical) Suppose a volcano is erupting and readings of the rate r t at which solid materials are spewed into the atmosphere are given in the table. The time t is measured in seconds and the units for r t are tones (metric tons) per second. t r t Use the Trapezoidal Rule with 3 subdivisions of equal length to approximate 6 0 r t dt. AP Calculus BC Page 14 of 17
15 Problem #2: (Graphical) Use the midpoint rule to approximate the area of the region bounded by the graph of the function and the xaxis over the indicated interval. Use n 4 subintervals. 2 f x x 3 ; 0,2 y x Problem #3: (Analytical) A particle moves along the xaxis so that its acceleration at any time t is given by a t 6t 18. At time t 0 the velocity of the particle v 0 24, and at time t 1 its position is x (A) Write an expression for the velocity vt of the particle at any time t. (B) For what value(s) of t is the particle at rest? (C) For what value(s) of t is the particle moving to the right on the time interval 0,8? (D) Write an expression for the position xt of the particle at any time t. At the conclusion of this students can present their finding to class by writing their solutions on the board and verbally explaining the steps to their classmates. AP Calculus BC Page 15 of 17
16 Curricular Requirement #3 The course teaches students how to communicate mathematics and explain solutions to problems both verbally and in written sentences. Students are encouraged to verbally express their suggestions on solving problems in class on a daily basis. Students will also come to board and demonstrate their solutions to the class. Examples of questions that have been used on examinations for students to express the mathematics in written sentences appear below. Example #1: If oil leaks from a tank at a rate of 120 r t gallons per minute at time t, what does r 0 t dt represent? Example #2: During the first 40 seconds of a flight, the rocket is propelled straight up so that in t seconds it reaches a 3 height of s 5t feet. It can be shown that ds dt 15t 2. Interpret ds dt in the context of the problem. AP Calculus BC Page 16 of 17
17 Curricular Requirement #4 The course teaches students how to use graphing calculators to help solve problems, experiment, interpret results, and support conclusions. Example for Solving Problems: Each student enrolled in this course will have a TI89 series graphing calculator to use. The students are expected to bring their graphing calculators to class with them each day. The calculators are used frequently in class to explore, discover and reinforce the concepts that we are learning. Example for Experiment: When introducing the limit definition of a derivative, the students will sketch a function using their graphing calculator and graph various secant lines to the curve which pass through a specific point x, f x on the curve. Students will calculate the slope of their secant lines. To graph the other secant lines students will choose a second point on the curve closer to fixed point of x, f x continue this pattern until they pick a point very close to the fixed point x, f x. Example of Interpretation of Results:. They will Using the example above, students will notice that our secant line is very close to slope of the curve at the fixed point x, f x. They will explore this further by zooming in on their original function close to the fixed point and noticing that it appears almost linear over a small fixed interval. Example of Supporting Conclusions: The first function students experiment with is usually a quadratic. I continue this experimentation with polynomial, exponential and logarithmic functions.
