Preparing for the AP Calculus AB exam requires a deep understanding of many different topics in calculus as well as an understanding of the AP exam and the types of questions it asks. This course is Part 1 of our XSeries: AP Calculus AB and it is designed to prepare you for the AP exam.
In Part 2, you will use and apply the meaning and interpretations of derivatives from Part 1 to the integral, antiderivatives and differential equations. You will learn some applications of integrals including finding volumes of solids and solids of revolution, volumes with known cross sections and applications to Velocity-Time graphs. We will close with an introduction to differential equations and see how they are used.
As you work through this course, you will find lecture videos taught by expert AP calculus teachers, practice multiple choice questions and free response questions that are similar to what you will encounter on the AP exam and tutorial videos that show you step-by-step how to solve problems. By the end of the course, you should be ready to take on the AP exam!
