AP Calculus AB

AP Calculus AB Summer Assignment

All AP Calculus AB students, regardless of who their teachers will be, are required to complete a summer assignment that consists of precalculus review. It is a packet of 228 problems, which can be downloaded by clicking HERE. It will be available from the end of the last day of finals in June until the end of the first week of classes. Be sure to carefully read the instructions on the first page. If you have any questions about the assignment, please email Mr. Prucha at kprucha@nhusd.k12.ca.us.

NOTE: The summer assignment for AB does not require the AB textbook, so DO NOT CHECK OUT THE TEXTBOOK for the course until you return in August and pick up your schedule.
