This course will follow the Topic Outline for AP Calculus AB. Class will meet for 90 minutes, every other day. Students are expected to actively participate in class discussion and collaborate as they discover new topics in Calculus. Students will complete guided explorations to investigate course material. Guided practice will give students opportunities to solve problems using graphing calculators and a variety of other methods. This course emphasizes problem solving and multiple representations (graphical, numerical, analytic/algebraic and verbal/written). Assessments will include individual quizzes and tests as well as partner and small group assessments. Assessments will also include both calculator active and non-calculator portions. Students will be asked to explain and justify results in words during class discussions and in complete sentences on assessments.
