AP Curriculum

# AP - Calculus AB

##### OUR PROGRAMS INCLUDE
###### Description

AP Calculus AB course is 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. This course teaches students concepts and problems when they are represented graphically, numerically, analytically and verbally, and to make connections amongst these representations.

Each student is assigned to a Stutorialz Tutor to help them during their course. This course is a blend of Live one on one session with the Tutor and Online Self study. Students have up to two live sessions per week with the instructor at preschedule time that works best for the student. Students actively engage with the lectures, interact with online resources, and solve practice tests at the end of each chapter. Computer based interactives and assignments help to reinforce concepts taught in the course. Students/parents can review the progress and access the learning through graded assessments, which include chapter quiz, midterm exams, and a cumulative final
