An Excel Spread sheet referencing each the AP exam free-response question (1998 to 2017) to the Learning Objectives (LO) and Essential Knowledge (EK) statements from the Course and exam Description (next below) AND linking each question to its scoring standard. Thank You Ted!
The Course and Exam Description for AP Calculus AB and BC from the College Board, (Revised Fall 2016)
The AB Directions and BC Directions. Yes, this is boiler plate stuff, but take a few minutes to go over it with your students. They should not have to see the directions for the first time on the day of the exam.The free-response instruction have changed slightly from previous years. The change is not a policy change, but rather made to emphasize certain things that students should be doing. For more on the changes see NCTM Calculus Panel Notes.
