Getting Ready for the AP Exams

Another month and it will be time to start reviewing for the AP exams. The exams this year are on Wednesday morning May 7, 2014.

To help you plan ahead, below are links to previous posts specifically on reviewing for the exam and on the type questions that appear on the free-response sections of the exams. I try to review by topic spending 1-2 days on each so that students can see the things that are asked for each general type. Many of the same ideas are tested in smaller “chunks” on the multiple-choice sections, so looking at the type should help with not only free-response questions but many of the multiple-choice questions as well. Of course, I will also spend some time on just multiple-choice questions as well.

    • I write in Word and use MathType to do the equations. The Word material is then copied into the WordPress form and the MathType equations entered separately one line at a time. To do this you need to open Mathtype and click on “Convert Equations.” In the drop down box called “Text using MathType translator” scroll down and choose the program you want, in my case WordPress. Then when you paste into the WordPress form the correct LaTex code will be entered. It looks like code until you publish the post, then it looks like it should. Hope this helps.
