Did you miss the informational meeting on Tuesday, April 14 at 6:30 PM?

No problem! Here is a recording of the meeting:

**Here is a quick summary of what you need to do:**

2. Arrange now for SAT/ACT scores to be sent to Ga Tech

3. Application window is from May 15 to June 15

4. This year you will be able to use PSAT scores. Do you know yours? If not find out.

5. You will need to arrange for Kennesaw Mtn to send an official transcript to Ga Tech after the completion of this semester.

Here is the link for Ga Tech Distance website:

Here is the link to College Board's updates on the AP Exam:

College Board Coronavirus Update

Quick Summary:

1. AP Calculus exam is May 12 at 2 pm

2. The Exam will consist of

a: a 25 minute question (worth 60%) followed by a 5 minute period to upload your answer.

b: a 15 minute question (worth 40%) followed by a 5 minute period to upload your answer.

3. Calculators will be allowed but not required.

4. Answers may be typed or handwritten and uploaded as a photo

5. The exam is open book / open note (but don't expect it to be easy!)

6. College Board advises that your class notes will be more helpful than the internet.

7. Please study very hard for this exam - having notes may seem like a huge advantage, but with the time limits you will not be able to sift through a pile of notes and still complete each question. Make 1-2 neatly labeled sheets of "Big Picture" stuff that can be quickly referenced if you forget a formula or something, then quickly shift back to the problem and work it.

7. College Board advises that you should submit unsimplified numeric answers.

8. Content covered on this year's exam:

The content included on the 2020 AP Calculus BC Exam is listed as AP Classroom unit numbers. The AP Classroom unit numbers can be found in the link at the top of this post. Scroll down and click on AP Calculus BC. The following list is content covered by the exam using our unit and lesson number system:

a. All of AP Calculus AB

b. All of AP Calculus BC Units 1 and 2 (no content from Unit 3 is on the exam!!)

c. AP Calculus BC Lessons 4.1, 4.3 (only p-series, not Integral Test), 4.5, 4.7/4.8 (only Ratio Test, not Absolute/Conditional Convergence)

d. The only content from AP Calculus BC Unit 5 on the exam is Taylor Polynomial Approximations. So, know the nth-term formula and focus on the Free-Response practice questions we give you.

Note: For those taking the AP Calculus AB exam, College Board has omitted AP Classroom Unit 8 from this exam. This corresponds to Lessons 6.1 - 6.5 from our AP Calculus AB course.

**Welcome!**

I am excited about the new school year. I am here to help you learn. If you need clarification of concepts learned in class, come for help. I am available on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7:30 - 8:00 am. Bring your homework with you so we can look together at where you're having trouble.

**1st Block Georgia Tech Distance Learning Students**

Until Ga Tech starts on August 19, we will meet during normal KMHS first block. Once Tech starts, class begins at 8:00 am.

Distance Learning will meet in room 627 (Mrs. Morlan's room).

**2nd Block Calculus**

1. There was not a summer assignment. We will work on a Pre-calculus review assignment on day 1 and day 2.

2. Get your textbook as soon as possible.

3. You do not need a graphing calculator for this class.

4. To use the class blog, click on the Calculus page listed on the left. You will need the username and password given in class.

**3rd Block AP Calculus AB Students:**

1. There was not a summer assignment. We will work on a Pre-calculus review assignment on day 1

2. You need to get your textbook as soon as possible. Make sure you get the white Calculus book titled **Single Variable Calculus Early Transcendentals with Vector Functions** by James Stewart. Pay attention to the "Single Variable" and the "with Vector Functions". You don't want the Multivariable textbook that looks very similar.

3. We will be using the TI-89 calculator, or the TI Nspire with CAS.
