Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus Honors or AP Calculus AB and permission of the department
AP Calculus BC is designed to follow the AP Calculus BC curriculum established by the College Board. The Calculus BC course is equivalent to two semesters of college calculus. A working knowledge of differential calculus is required for entry into this course. One of the objectives of Calculus BC is to continue with a rigorous treatment of calculus by expanding upon the understanding and application of derivatives. The course extends into integral calculus and sequences and series with considerable attention paid to the theories underlying calculus. Placement in Calculus BC is dependent upon the successful completion of prerequisites, the recommendation of the department, and a well-established work ethic. Candidates are expected to possess the determination and the initiative to take on a college-level course and its corresponding workload.
Students are required to take the AP Calculus BC exam.
