## AP Calculus B/C

### Description:

AP Calculus BC is designed to prepare students who have successfully completed AP Calculus AB for the College Board's Advanced Placement Calculus BC Test. Since the course will continue to build on the concepts taught in AP Calculus AB, it is expected that students are proficient with the skills covered in that course. Additional topics covered beyond those in the AB course include parametric functions, polar functions, vector functions, sequences, and series. Advanced antidifferentiation techniques are also taught. Students will be required to have a graphing calculator for this course. A suggested type will be recommended by the teacher.

### Learning Targets:

Target #1 “Limits”  Students will be able to find the limits of a variety of functions, including trigonometric, exponential and rational functions.

Target #2 “Differential Equations”  Students will be able to solve differential equations for both general and particular solutions.

Target #3 “Application of Definite Integrals”  Students will be able to find the area of a region between two curves and use various methods to find the volume of a solid of revolution.

Target #4 “Integration”  Students will be able to integrate a variety of functions, including trigonometric, exponential and rational functions.

Target #5 “Differential Equations”  Students will be able to solve differential equations for both general and particular solutions.

Target #6 “Application of Definite Integrals”  Students will be able to find the area of a region between two curves and use various methods to find the volume of a solid of revolution.

Target #7 “Infinite Series”  Students should be able to find the coefficients of a Taylor or Maclaurin polynomial, write a Taylor Series, derive a Taylor Series from a basic list, and find the radius of convergence and the interval of convergence.

## What you need to know about AP Calculus B/C

Online classes offered through eAchieve Academy allow students to get the diploma they need the way they want to get it. eAchieve diplomas are accepted at all national universities: so why not get some college credit while you get your high school diploma. Online AP Calc B/C is offered, among other AP classes, and counts as the same credit to universities as taking the physical class.

### Are AP Calculus B/C classes hard?

AP students are expected to know and perform complex mathematical equations at a college level: so, yes. Although AP coursework may be difficult, many of our students like the challenge and appreciate the skills they developed to pursue mathematical careers.

### Are AP Calculus B/C classes worth it?

Although AP classes take a lot of dedication, the benefits of taking an online AP course are worth it! In addition to gaining incredible knowledge, students will get college credit and college course experience to prepare them for future higher education courses.

### How does AP Calculus B/C work?

The course takes one year to complete, and works much like a regular class except more in-depth. Students in AP Calculus B/C further focus on materials learned in AP Calculus A/B, then end with a state administered AP exam to determine how much college credit they’ve earned.

### Is AP Calculus B/C necessary?

AP classes are not necessary to graduate high school, but are beneficial for students who want to earn college credit and reduce their high-level education costs in the future. AP Calculus B/C specializes in understanding complex mathematical equations and solutions that prepare students for careers in math, engineering, or other sciences.

### Can I take online AP Calculus B/C online?

Absolutely! eAchieve offers an extensive collection of online AP classes for high school students to enroll in. Start your path today to further your knowledge, advance your credits, and prepare for college with courses offered at eAchieve.

### How many AP classes should I take?

Research often helps students figure out how many AP classes they should take in a year, but someone’s ability to handle coursework changes year to year as that individual grows. Challenge yourself at first, but try not to overwhelm yourself with work, and go from there.

### How does the weighted AP GPA work?

One of the many benefits of taking AP classes is that they count more towards your GPA than standard courses: which means that it is possible for students to achieve a GPA greater than 4.0! Many of our AP students see this as a safety net and a challenge to graduate with a 4.0+ (very impressive to colleges).

### How do I take AP classes outside of high school?

Start your path to online AP classes today to begin getting college credit, advance your knowledge, and prepare yourself for higher education with the courses offered at eAchieve all on your terms.

### How should I choose which AP classes to take?

A rule of thumb is to take AP classes that align with your personal strengths and academic interests. Strategically, it’s a good idea to take AP classes to prepare for your intended major in college, if you have one.

### What’s the difference between AP Calculus B/C and other high school math classes?

The difference between AP, Honors, and regular high school classes can be summed up by the overall difficulty and whether or not you are eligible to receive college credit.

### Can homeschool students take AP Calculus B/C online?

Absolutely. Many students enrolled at eAchieve are homeschooled students taking AP classes online to supplement their homeschool curriculum.

### What are the pros and cons of AP Calculus B/C?

AP classes can provide many advantages to motivated high school students looking to prepare for college or simply challenge themselves with more rigorous classes in high school. On the other hand, students who aren’t prepared for the difficulty of AP coursework may struggle.

### Is AP Calculus B/C the same as taking calculus in college?

AP classes are designed to be about as challenging as introductory college classes. If you were to compare it with an advanced college calculus course, the college class would be much more difficult. See: AP classes vs college classes

### Do colleges like AP Calculus B/C?

AP classes on your transcript look good when applying to college, as long as you’re able to achieve good grades and a good score on the final AP exam.

### How do I manage my time when taking AP Calculus B/C with other AP courses?

Taking multiple AP classes in a semester can be challenging, but it’s also a great opportunity to learn and develop time management skills, which will serve you well in college.

### Is taking AP Calculus harder than dual enrollment?

It’s not easy to compare AP classes to dual enrollment classes, because so much depends on the nature of the school where your dual enrollment class is held. AP classes are generally more favored by college admissions boards, compared to dual enrollment classes.
