Calculus BC- In Person

For new and experienced AP teachers

This AP Calculus BC workshop will cover the curriculum of AP Calculus BC, through developing a conceptual understanding of the topics and also teaching practical ways to present materials.  Participants will share and gain new teaching strategies to help prepare students, as well as learn the AP Framework that was enhanced for 2019.  Additionally, participants will be exposed to the AP exams, not only from the perspective of teaching the standards of the exam, but also grading, preparing students and seeing results of students from previous years’ exams. Textbooks, prerequisites, assessments and College Board student resources, including AP Classroom, will also be discussed.

Graphing calculators and on-line applications will be used to present ideas from graphical, numerical, and analytic approaches.  A small unit on creating math videos and implementing a flipped classroom in the math class will also be presented.  Participants will be actively engaged and sharing of ideas and information is expected, including a personal assignment that will enhance their own classroom. The emphasis on specific topics will be guided in part by the needs of the participants, but also expect at least 40%-50% of the workshop will be on getting more familiar with BC only topics.

A Laptop or tablet is highly recommended for a full experience and for ease of sharing of materials.
