• For those taking the AP test, I'm posting some new information provided by the college board.

     

    Important Information about the AP test:

    AP Calculus AP test will begin promptly at 11:00am on Tuesday, May 12th. Be signed in by 10:30am so you can fill out the necessary personal information.

    • AP Testing Guide Overview (all subjects) <- Video overview about the 2020 AP test
    • AP Testing Guide 2020  <- 51 pages of information about the 2020 AP tests. It's dense, but I recommend looking over it. The video below helps focus what's important for this class.
    • AP Calculus Test Guide  <- AP Calculus teachers reviewing the Testing Guide but focusing on aspects especially relevent to calclulus students. It's very useful! (first half of the video only).
    • AP Exam Day Checklist <- Fill one out for each test your taking and have it with you on test day!
    • Required and Recommended Resources <- A list of resources students must have or should have for the AP test. Covers all subjects.
    • Demo Test <- Very Important! Make sure your tech will work with this link! Practice using the webiste to submit answers, your test will look the same as this.

    **Please** join the classroom remind (details on google classroom).

     

    Assigments

    Each day we have a review there will be a set of 3 FRQs posted to the google classroom. Complete these. They are meant to be done in 45 minutes, so see what you can do in that time and practice prioritizing and like you will on the real thing. However, it's not a bad idea to take extra time on them if necessary.

     

    At the posted times above, please attend the online Zoom meeting to review the grading of each problem and ask questions. The Zoom meetings are NOT optional. If you need alternatives to Zoom please contact me ASAP so we can work it out.

    Zoom meeting info will be sent out via remind and on google classroom.

    Assignments 3 - 5

    I send out an email with the following info to your school account and to your parents and guardians:

    Starting Friday 4/24 , we’ll be providing review of past AP free response questions on Zoom. These review sessions will require about an hour and 15 minutes of work each day:

    -You will start by setting a 45 minute timer and working on 3 FRQs. This will be honor system of course, but I recommend you do it day of to keep the problem fresh.
    -You will then join the Zoom meeting and we will take about 30 minutes to score and review them together.

    The idea here is to reinforce all the material and specific style that AP problems have when graded. Scoring is for your benefit only, your grades under this new system will be attendance based. I would like everyone to attend the 4 sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for full credit. I highly recommend attending on Wednesday and Saturday as well if your schedule allows.

    These sessions are highly recommended, it’s what we would have been doing in class/after school to prepare. These times (for my sessions at least) have been chosen to match up with our usual 6th period class times and should not interfere with work for other classes.


    The schedule for Mr. Wagner’s sessions is as follows:

    -Monday: Zoom review at 1:30pm to 2:00pm
    -Tuesday: Zoom review at 2:00pm to 2:30pm
    -(optional) Wednesday: Zoom review with Mr. Yetman at 10:45am to 11:15am
    -Thursday: Zoom review 1:15pm to 1:45pm
    -Friday: Zoom review at 1:30pm to 2:00pm
    -(optional) Saturday: Zoom review with Mr. Wagner and Mr. Yetman at 10:45am to 11:15am


    In addition, if needed Mr. Yetman has offered to open his other sessions to you if the timing for his works better with your schedule. His sessions are as follows:

    -Monday: Zoom review at (10:00 - 10:30)
    -Tuesday: Zoom review at (10:45 - 11:15)
    -Wednesday: Zoom review at (10:45 - 11:15)
    -Thursday (optional): Zoom review at (4:00- 4:30) **Note** Thursdays with Mr. Yetman will likely cover the same problems we will cover in the earlier session with me. No need to show up to both unless you want another viewpoint on the problems.


    I know that for a variety of reasons there may be issues with attending these sessions. If you don’t think you can make some/all of them, please contact me to discuss alternatives as soon as possible.


    I’ve posted a packet of AP questions to my google classroom website. I will be referring to this packet when assigning problems over the next few weeks.


    Lastly, while I will no longer be requiring them, I do think it is beneficial to keep up with the College Board videos we’ve been using. If you are looking for additional prep materials start there!
