Welcome to Advanced Placement Calculus!!!
The course does move at a rapid pace so please do not fall behind. I will be on maternity leave until September 14th. My goal is to be available each day during 7th and 8th hour so students can contact me via email, google chat, or google hangouts video with questions. You can contact me at other times too, I just may not be as quick to answer. Even though I am not at the school, please use me as a resource - I know how challenging Calculus can be. I hope you had an amazing summer break and have a great start to your school year! I am looking forward to seeing you all in September.

AP Courses: AP Calculus enables students to pursue college level studies while still in high school. AP provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both. Taking AP courses also demonstrates to college admission officers that students have sought out the most rigorous course work available to them. AP development committees define the scope and expectations of the course, articulating through a curriculum framework what students should know and be able to do upon completion of the AP course. The course will conclude with a rigorous exam developed and scored by college and university faculty as well as experienced AP teachers. This exam provides students with an opportunity to demonstrate mastery of college level course work. You can visit www.collegeboard.org/ap/creditpolicy to view AP credit and placement policies at more than 100 colleges and universities. In addition, many colleges provide statements regarding their AP policies on their websites. Most colleges or universities offer a sequence of several courses in Calculus and entering students are placed within this sequence according to the extent of their preparation as measured by results on the AP exam.
