Calculus AB is equivalent to the first semester of college calculus, with a short review of pre-calculus topics. The serious student will be prepared to take the Advanced Placement test in Calculus AB. The course reviews analytic geometry and limits. The theory and techniques of differentiation and integration of polynomial, trigonometric, and transcendental functions are covered, and applications are included for both integration and differentiation. Graphing calculators (TI-83, 83+, or 84) are strongly recommended as the student will be taught to use the calculator as a support for analysis, and graphing calculators are required for the AP exam.
