Prerequisites Needed:

AP Calculus A/B

Prerequisites For: None

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.
