Join us for this special “Calculus Conference Within a Conference,” especially for teachers of calculus. Hear from renowned speakers about issues, challenges and opportunities facing teachers of calculus.
Advanced Placement (AP*) Calculus is implementing a new Curriculum Framework organized around four "Big Ideas": Limits, Derivatives, Integrals and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, and Series (BC). In many ways, the new framework does not represent a significant departure from the course description of the last several years, but there are challenges and opportunities facing the AP* program and AP* teachers. Join us for a thoughtful discussion around a variety of issues, such as transitional success for students going to college, intelligent and appropriate uses of technology in teaching to improve student learning of calculus, changes in assessment and opportunities for professional development.
