Re:     Summer work

       AP Calculus AB is a college level course covering material traditionally taught in the first
semester of college calculus. The course is taught in one semester consisting of 90-minute
classes. Students need a strong foundation to be ready for the rigorous work required
throughout the term. Completing the review packet before the beginning of the course will
ensure a proper background.

        This packet consists of review material studied during Algebra II and Analysis. Students
should expect to work approximately 10 hours on this assignment. The packet will be collected
on the first day of class and will be given a grade that will be based on completeness of
solutions and accuracy. In preparation for the AP test, students need to begin showing all
work with logical steps. You must show your work for problems in the review packet.
Do not list only an answer.

        Students enrolled in AP Calculus AB will be using a graphing calculator throughout the
course since one is required to be used for the AP test. Students will be issued a TI 89
calculator for use in class during the semester and, with parental permission, students may take
the calculator home to use as well.

         Students will have the opportunity to continue studying Calculus for a second term
through the BC Calculus course. The AB course is a prerequisite for BC Calculus. The BC
course will cover material traditionally taught in the second semester of college Calculus.
Students taking both the AB and BC courses and passing the AP Calculus BC test could earn
up to 6 hours of college credit depending upon the Advanced Placement policy at the college.
Some colleges also award credit for a passing score on the AP Calculus AB exam. Since the
AP test is only offered in May, students taking only the AB course should be prepared to study
for the test independently, although there will be review sessions available.

        The success of each student in the AP Calculus program depends upon diligent effort
and practice of newly learned skills. Although a suggested assignment is given for each lesson,
completion of some assignments is optional. The previous night’s assignment will be reviewed
in class each day and there will be ample opportunity to ask questions.

        Calculus is a challenging, stimulating, and dynamic field of mathematics and I look
forward to sharing my enthusiasm for the material with you. If you have any questions or need
to contact me over the summer, my e-mail address is Lynn.Barry@cobbk12.org .

              23 degree incline segment AH and only 2.8 seconds to go down the drop from
              H to C. The car covers horizontal distances of 180 feet on the incline and 60
              feet on the drop. How high is the roller coaster above point B? Find the
              distances AH and HC. How fast (in ft/sec) does the car go up the incline?
              What is the approximate average speed of the car as it goes down the drop?
              (Assume the car travels along HC. Is your approximate answer too big or too small?
