TEACHING AP CALCULUS - 3RD ED.



Teaching AP Calculus
Teaching AP Calculus is a summer institute in a book. Lin McMullin distills his many years of experience as an AB and BC calculus teacher, exam reader, table leader, and international consultant into a book to help new and experienced calculus teachers. The third edition is one-third longer than the previous edition and contains more insights, thoughts, hints, and ideas that you will not find in textbooks. References to actual AP Calculus exam questions help the reader understand how the concepts are actually tested. Whether this is your first year or your twenty-fifth, there is something here for you. New teachers will find a place to begin, and experienced AP teachers will find a wealth of new ideas. Section I- The first section of Teaching AP Calculus is about what you should know to get started teaching an AP calculus course. It will tell you where to find resources. The Philosophy and Goals are explained. There is a chapter on finding and recruiting students, pacing and planning the year. A chapter is devoted to technology, especially the use of graphing calculators; this is an important part of the course. The last chapter in the section talks about the prerequisites and things students should know before they start AP calculus. Section 2- The middle section of Teaching AP Calculus is the longest. In it all of the topics that should be included in the AB and BC courses are discussed: limits, derivatives and their applications, definite integrals and their applications, differential equations, and several additional topics that are tested on only the BC exam. These chapters present ideas about how to present the topics. The chapters include some classroom activities. The last chapter is concerned with the writing that students must do on the exams: how to justify and explain their answers. Margin references lead the reader to actual AP Calculus exam questions on all the important concepts. Section 3- The last section of Teaching AP Calculus is about the AP exams.
