The First Week

After reading my post on “The First and Second Day of School” Paul A. Foerster,  was nice enough to share  these problems from a recent presentation. They give a taste of derivatives and integrals in the first week of school and get the kids into calculus right off the bat.

The First Week of AP Calculus

Paul who recently retired after 50 (!) years of teaching, is Teacher Emeritus of Mathematics of Alamo High Heights School in San Antonio, Texas. He is the author of several textbooks including Calculus: Concepts and Applications, Second Edition, 2005, published by Kendall Hunt Publishing Company, www.kendallhunt.com (Formerly published by Key Curriculum Press).

Many years ago (almost 50) I remember teaching from his fine Trigonometry book 

Thank you, Paul!
