Virtual Class - 31 March 2020 AP Calc Update

2017 solution to 4 and 6

2017 solution 1 and 3

Hi Everyone,

I know it’s hard to focus on school work but Khan Academy can be a big help.  Just think of all of those “brrrriiiinnggg” noises you will hear when you get a question right.

I’m good, my family is too, and I hope everyone you care about is well also.

• Good news - The College Board has shared that there will still be exams, and they might be given at home with multiple date options.
• Bad news - Fewer students will probably take the exam and the exams will have fewer questions. That’s still fine, just less room for error.
• Your Job - Kick Khan Academy’s butt. Master things you kind-of knew and learn things that I was not successful in teaching you
• My job - I will check Khan Academy regularly to monitor your progress, and be available to answer questions
• Bonus - Since I can’t give the extra credit Volume project that I planned, I am planning to give extra points for Khan Academy. Some combination of time and progress (formula still to be determined).

College board also stated that topics from unit 8 won’t be on the test. See below for those topics
