## AP Calculus AB

Credit: 1

Prerequisite: Teacher’s Signature & Pre-Calculus

This rigorous course is the equivalent to a semester college course in Calculus, focusing on differential and integral calculus. Topics include concepts and skills of limits, definite integrals and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. The course teaches students to approach calculus concepts and problems when they are represented graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally, and to make connections amongst these representations. Students learn to use technology to help solve problems, experiment, interpret results, and support conclusions. An AP exam is expected to be taken at the conclusion of the course.

## AP Statistics

Credit: 1

Prerequisite: Teacher’s Signature & Algebra 2 or higher level course

This is a rigorous course in the study of statistics, which uses computers and calculators to establish a strong understanding of statistics through sampling and experimentation, exploring and analyzing data, assessing models and performing simulations. An AP exam is expected to be taken at the conclusion of the course.
