AP Calculus AB and BC

Live Oak Advanced Placement® Calculus is a full year course intending to give students command of the fundamental concepts and methods of single-variable calculus. Topics include limit operations, differentiation, integration, polar forms, infinite series, and an introduction to ordinary differential equations. Students will be working with a graphing calculator to supplement the class. The course will prepare students to succeed on the AP® Calculus AB or BC exam, although taking the AP exam is not a course requirement. The course is the equivalent of a semester (AB) or full year (BC) of university freshman calculus. To succeed in Calculus, a student must have completed a year’s course in PreCalculus, learning frequently used functions & their graphs, transformation of function graphs, trigonometric functions & their inverse functions, matrix, polar coordinates, parametric functions, sequences & series, and limits.
