The BC level calculus course is an extension of the AB level course.
(See description above.) It prepares students to take the BC level CEEB
Advanced Placement Exam. BC calculus is an intensive course equivalent
to most first-year college calculus courses. Students who are successful
in this course will be prepared to take a multivariable calculus course
(usually the third semester of a college calculus sequence). Because
the AP exams are given in May, this extended syllabus (set by The
College Board) must be completed by the end of April. Therefore, the
course will move at a much faster pace than the AB level course.
Students who elect this course need a strong background in the
additional topics of polar and parametric equations and their graphs,
logarithms, and finite and infinite series. It is expected that students
have access to a graphing calculator outside of class.
