Monday Night Calculus: Your Questions, Our Answers

Posted 01/11/2022 by Curtis Brown (@cbmathguy)

 

Monday Night Calculus
Calculus connoisseurs Tom Dick and Steve Kokoska are ready to call the Monday night action!

 

For the 2021–22 school year, Texas Instruments (TI) has once again teamed up with former AP® Calculus Chief Reader Steve Kokoska and former Test Development committee member Tom Dick to provide live, content sessions via YouTube for students and teachers alike. Consider this must-see AP® Calculus TV!

Like last year, the sessions will cover content and questions that teachers have specifically asked us to review. And, as an added bonus, Kokoska and Dick will review some original, unique problems they’ve written that are bound to come up in the sequence of teaching the course. They will also be available to answer your questions live.

For the spring of ’22, we are updating our schedule. The YouTube Live “Monday Night Calculus” sessions begin Monday, January 10, at 8 p.m. Eastern time, and will continue through April. Also, there’s a new twist this spring: We will be drawing for a chance to have Kokoska and/or Dick teach a one hour class (remotely) with your students. You must watch the session live to be a part of the drawing, and we will draw for one session each month.

Below, you can download a problem set or two for upcoming sessions. We’ll continue to update these problems every week prior to the next session.

Go here to join our upcoming session.

TI in Focus: AP® Calculus is a set of resources reviewing previous free-response questions through the lens of graphing calculators. See Kokoska and Dick’s scoring commentary, their assessment of common errors, and extension videos on how to use the TI-84 Plus CE and the TI-Nspire™ CX families of graphing calculators.

At TI, we are committed to helping students achieve in calculus, regardless of those challenges. And, we believe these resources are a valuable asset as you navigate an ever-changing landscape in the math classroom.
