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.
