Offered June 19-22, 2017
For new and experienced AP teachers
NOTE: ***Bring your graphing calculator TI83, 84 or NSpire***
This four day workshop will consist of lectures, simulations, hands-on activities, videos, sharing (best practices), questions and answers, testing strategies, and a “mock” reading session of the Free Response questions. We will also work on setting up your AP program for next year.
The schedule will be flexible. We’ll try to stay on topic as much as possible, but since the four days’ foci are interrelated, we may find ourselves delving into areas not originally scheduled. So much the better. Linkage among topics is very important. Be prepared to ask questions, share musings, and pose “what ifs?” We’ll be very free flowing.
We hope to have textbooks and other course materials from various publishers to give to each participant. There will be “giveaway” items as well. I look forward to meeting you in June!!!
