This course will be devoted to investigating the Calculus BC
AP Calculus BC is roughly equivalent to a first semester college calculus course devoted to topics in differential and integral calculus. The AP course covers topics in these areas, including concepts and skills of limits, derivatives, definite integrals, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. The course teaches students to approach calculus concepts and problems when they are represented graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally, and to make connections among these representations.Here is a link to the Mathematical Practices for AP Calculus: https://advancesinap.collegeboard.org/stem/calculus/mathematical-practices There you will be able to download the Curriculum Framework document as well as find additional resources.
Peter Kaczmar has served as math teacher for 30 years. Currently, he teaches both the AB and BC versions of AP Calculus. He has served as an AP Calculus Exam Reader since 2004. Peter has a delivered a number of professional development events including: APSI workshops, has taught in the The University of Pennsylvania STEM Teacher Fellows Program, has worked with Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Talented Youth, and has delivered a number of in-house professional development workshops. He has consulted on a popular statistics textbook, as well as, an Algebra video series. Other curricular work found him developing Bridge Courses to help remedy the achievement gap. Through the nomination of former students, Peter has been awarded the MAA’s Edyth Sliffe Award for Distinguished Mathematics Teaching, and was, named in Cornell’s Merrell Scholars Program.
