Description:

This collection provides learning materials for all topics in the College Board’s course description for an AP Calculus AB course, as well as a small number of additional topics, such as L’Hopital’s Rule. The standards contained here are modeled after the Indiana Academic Standards for Mathematics – Calculus (Adopted April 2014 – Standards Correlation Guide Document 5-28-2014).

Notes regarding this course:

• There is content which is beyond what is currently contained in the AP Calculus AB course description, i.e. Logarithmic Differentiation and L’Hopital’s Rule. Both of these are useful topics to cover, and L’Hopital’s Rule, while not now a part of AP CalculusAB, will be added to the AP Calculus AB course description for the 2016-2017 academic year.

• The collection is organized into five broad categories: Limits & Continuity (LC),
Derivatives (D), Applications of Derivatives (AD), Integrals (I), and Applications
of Integrals (AI). This categorization aligns closely, but not exactly, with the
AP course description. Some specific topics could be placed in more than one
category, e.g. Slope Fields could be placed in Applications of Derivatives or Integrals. Regardless of the categorization, all content in the AP Calculus AB Course Description is covered in this course.

• The sequencing of the topics generally, but not rigidly, follows the sequence in
which the course would be taught. While the categories would generally be covered in the order presented, specific content within the categories could be effectively covered in a number of different sequences.

Reviewer Comments:


Standards Alignment: This resource does a wonderful job of aligning activities and resources to each of the CCSS for Calculus.
Subject Matter: A variety of resources are provided; although each are well done and helpful, no one would stand alone in completely teaching the standard. Additional support and explanation would be required.
Support Steaching: Teachers would need to navigate the variety of resources provided to determine which to use and how they would benefit their own classroom situation.
Instructional Quality: Great worksheets are included; containing answer keys.
