Foundational/prerequisite knowledge in Calculus AB and/or BC before attempting these units.

About this course

Well-respected AP instructors from around the United States will lead you through video instruction, exam-style questions and interactive activities to help you master the most challenging concepts in the AP® Calculus AB & Calculus BC curriculum.

Each module will cover one of the most demanding concepts in this AP® Calculus AB & Calculus BC (based on College Board data from 2011–2013 Advanced Placement® exams).

These tricky topics are broken up into bite-sized pieces—with short instructional videos, interactive graphs, and practice problems written by many of the same people who write and grade your AP® Calculus exams.

Topics include:

  1. AB/BC: Limits
  2. AB/BC: Definition of Derivative
  3. AB/BC: Chain Rule
  4. AB/BC: Implicit Differentiation
  5. AB/BC: Mean Value Theorem
  6. AB/BC: L’Hospital’s Rule
  7. AB/BC: Riemann Sums
  8. AB/BC: Functions Defined by Definite Integrals
  9. AB/BC: Modeling & Solving Differential Equations (1)
  10. AB/BC: Modeling & Solving Differential Equations (2)
  11. AB/BC: Rectilinear Motion
  12. BC: Parametric Equations
  13. BC: Introduction to Series
  14. BC: Series Convergence
  15. BC: Series Manipulation

This course is specifically designed for blended learning in AP classrooms, but can also be used by AP students independently as supplementary help and exam review.
