Master the most difficult topics in your AP® Calculus AB & Calculus BC courses. Well-respected AP instructors from around the United States will lead you through video instruction, exam-style questions and interactive activities to help you master the most challenging concepts in the AP® Calculus AB & Calculus BC curriculum.

Each module will cover one of the most demanding concepts in this AP® Calculus AB & Calculus BC (based on College Board data from 2011–2013 Advanced Placement® exams).

These tricky topics are broken up into bite-sized pieces—with short instructional videos, interactive graphs, and practice problems written by many of the same people who write and grade your AP® Calculus exams.

Topics include:

- AB/BC: Limits

- AB/BC: Definition of Derivative

- AB/BC: Chain Rule

- AB/BC: Implicit Differentiation

- BC*: L’Hospital’s Rule

- AB/BC: Riemann Sums

- AB/BC: Functions Defined by Definite Integrals

- AB/BC: Modeling & Solving Differential Equations (1)

- AB/BC: Modeling & Solving Differential Equations (2)

- AB/BC: Rectilinear Motion

- BC: Parametric Equations

- BC: Introduction to Series

- BC: Series Convergence

- BC: Series Manipulation

This course is specifically designed for blended learning in AP classrooms, but can also be used by AP students independently as supplementary help and exam review.
