Calculus AB AP
Grade: 12Calculus Advanced Placement is a course that provides students with the content established by the College Board. It is recommended for students who plan to continue the study of advanced math and science courses in college. Topics include: (1) limits, (2) continuity, (3) derivatives, (4) definite and indefinite integrals, (5) applications, and (6) techniques of integration. The use of graphing technology is required. A TI-83 or 84 is the calculator of choice. This course is considered an honors class and students will receive a weighted grade if they earn a C or above. Students in this course will be expected to take the AP exam, which may earn them college credit. Students may earn college credit through Indiana University for this course. This two-credit course is a Core 40 and AHD course with standards defined.
The State of Indiana requires students to sit for AP exams in order to qualify for the Academic Honors Diplomas as well as the new Graduation Pathway requirements. Therefore, any student at Noblesville High School enrolled in a College Board Advanced Placement course will be required to sit for the corresponding exam. Cumulative grade point averages will be re-calculated retroactively without the grade weight for students who do not take the exam. The cost of AP assessments are decided by the College Board; however, the cost of this exam is currently covered by the State of Indiana.
