AP Calculus BC Summer Assignment 2018
Welcome to BC Calculus! Calculus, like all of math, builds upon itself. Thus, it is expected that you have a strong foundation from Calculus AB but rest assured, we will make it stronger throughout the 1st semester with review of AB topics while incorporating new ideas to them.
All students enrolled in AP Calculus BC should complete this summer assignment.

We believe that homework supports and enhances student learning by allowing students to practice skills, deepen understanding and become more confident in their mathematical ability. The Contemporary Mathematics teachers will assign meaningful homework problems two or three days a week that students can complete in a (weekly) total of 30-40 minutes. We will ensure students understand the concepts and have the necessary skills to successfully complete these assignments before assigning them as homework. We will provide timely feedback on student homework, with time allotted in class and/or outside of class, for student clarification. Homework is an assessment of developing knowledge and understanding, and hence will be scored in the "formative assessment" category of the gradebook.
