:: 2014 AP* Summer Institutes at UT Austin
AP Calculus AB for Experienced AP Teachers
The aim of the Institute is to organize the content of AB Calculus to better prepare your students for success on the AP Calculus Exam. We will work together, considering the main goals of an AP Calculus course, to develop a plan to integrate technology, pedagogy and curricular activities in order to create an inspiring, relevant and appropriate Calculus course.
With this in mind please bring any successful ideas, lessons or activities that have improved your students understanding of Calculus and/or preparation for the AP Calculus Exam. You will need a calculator and your course outline for planning purposes.
