AP Calculus AB & BC

suggested for ages 15-18


Course Details

AP Calculus is a rigorous high-school level course that is designed to build students’ in-depth understanding of calculus. The course is aligned with College Board standards and is designed to prepare students for the AP Calculus AB or BC exam.

This course is suitable for students who are taking AP Calculus concurrently in school or are studying for the exam independently. We require that students have completed Pre-Calculus / Trigonometry as a prerequisite to this course. Due to the length and rigor of this course, we strongly recommend all students enroll in this course with two classes per week or more.

For students who are taking AP Calculus AB, the course will cover: Limits and Continuity, Differentiation, Applications of Derivatives, Integration and Accumulation of Change, Differential Equations, and Applications of Integrations. For students who are taking AP Calculus BC, this course will also cover Parametric Equations, Polar Coordinates, and Vector-Valued Functions.


Course Curriculum

This course typically takes 9 months to complete. This depends on the student's dedication to homework, their previous experience, and the difficulty of course material. Our instructors move at the pace of the student, taking extra time to reinforce concepts as needed. As mentioned above, due to the length and rigor of this course, we strongly recommend all students enroll in this course with two classes per week or more.
