AP Calculus Test Prep, AP Review

AP Calculus Test Prep

Instructor: Professor N

Schedule: Sunday 2-4 pm

Location: Westfield HS, Chantilly/HCS campus

The course is designed to prepare students who are taking the challenging AP Calculus AB/BC courses in their base schools. Both Calculus AB and Calculus BC are covered in this comprehensive AP enrichment class,  which aligns with the new curriculum framework taking effect for the 2017 AP Calculus AB and BC exams. The book AP Calculus’ main features include: practice exams in Calculus AB and in Calculus BC; the text is modified to reflect the new AP exam format. All test questions answered with solutions explained, a detailed subject review covering topics for both exams, advice to students on efficient use of their graphing calculators.

College Board AP Calculus Requirements: AP Calculus

AP Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC focus on students’ understanding of calculus concepts and provide experience with methods and applications. Although computational competence is an important outcome, the main emphasis is on a multi representational approach to calculus, with concepts, results, and problems being expressed graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. The connections among these representations are important. Teachers and students should regularly use technology to reinforce relationships among functions, to confirm written work, to implement experimentation, and to assist in interpreting results. Through the use of the unifying themes of calculus (e.g., derivatives, integrals, limits, approximation, and applications and modeling).  AP Calculus. 

Reading lists and supplemental materials will be provided during the course. Periodic quiz assessments will be given to measure student progress.

Math Professor N. has taught Math for over 20 years at all levels, from middle and high school through advanced college level. He helped establish the advanced mathematics program at the new Governor’s School at Innovation Park, serving as the Mathematics Chairperson and liaison between the School, and the George Mason University Math Department. At Governor’s School he taught AP Calculus (AB/BC),as well as supervised student STEM projects and served as student adviser.

Professor N. is a dedicated Math teacher and delivers his Math teaching with enthusiasm: engaging students, sparking curiosity, and jump-starting motivation. He taught at Oakton Academy summer camp, and received overwhelming praise from students and parents. We are excited to have him bring his 20 years’ Mathematics teaching experience to our center.

Comments from Professor N’s students:

“I really enjoyed Professor N’s Math class. He made math learning so much fun. Even if it is a difficult concept or a problem, we ended up learning and also in a fun way. He is one of the best Math teacher I have ever had.” – from a junior 

“I loved his class and he was so helpful and made calculus more fun despite it being incredibly hard. The key to pass is practice.” “This is my second time taking one of his math classes. I highly recommend taking him. His quizzes are difficult but his tests are straightforward and he gives you a practice test that pretty much resembles exactly what you will see on the actual test. He really cares about his classes and makes the long lectures interesting.”
