The Calculus Bridge to AP class is an advanced 3-week course that will focus on Honors Calculus concepts for students preparing to enter Calculus AP in the Fall. This class is intended for students who have already been recommended into AP Calculus AB, new recommendations cannot be given through this course. Students will gain an edge by learning key Calculus concepts at the honors level during this “crash course" to help them perform better at the AP level. Topics covered in this course include Limits and Continuity, Differentiation rules, Derivative of functions, and Indefinite and Definite Integrals.
Honors level classes can expect more rigorous requirements for assignments and assessments.
Prerequisite: Recommendation in AP Calculus AB
This 3-week semester course is offered for first time credit, for credit grade replacement, or for non-credit enrichment in preparation for taking the course in the future. Please check with your school regarding credit from outside institutions.
