I assume that most of my readers are AP Calculus teachers. The year is coming to an end and it is time to think about reviewing for the exams. For the next few weeks my posts will discuss how to review for the AP calculus exams. Don’t panic if you’re not done yet; it’s too early for that. I am just trying to stay ahead of you so you’ll be able to think this over before its time to use it.
The first post will be some general information about the exam for your students. After that there will be a series of post on each of the “type” problems that appear on the free-response sections exams. A good way to review is to spend 2 – 3 days on each type so that students can see what and how each topic is tested. Doing so will help them not only with the free-response questions, but also with the multiple-choice questions which test the same concepts in bits and pieces.
I would like you to share your ideas as well. Please respond by clicking on “Comments” at the end of each post with your suggestions. You can also find what I’ve written about specific topics by using the search box or the categories list in the right-side column, or by clicking on any of the words in the tag cloud at the bottom of the page. This will bring up all the post about that topic.
