Calculus AB and Calculus BC are primarily concerned with developing the students’ understanding of the concepts of calculus and providing experience with its methods and applications. The courses emphasize a multirepresentational approach to calculus,with concepts, results, and problems being expressed graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. Building enduring mathematical understanding requires students to understand the why and how of mathematics in addition to mastering the necessary procedures and skills. To foster this deeper level of learning. AP* Calculus is designed to develop maathematical knowledge conceptually, guiding students to connedt topics and representations throuhgout each course and to aply strategies and techniques to accurtately solve diverse types of problems.
