    • AP Calculus AB Exam Information
    Course Info - From the AP Central website
     
    For our course, you will need: 1) Paper (plenty of it!) for notes and for answering problems
                                               2) A 3 ring binder. There will be binder checks throughout the quarter.
                                               3) Index cards
                                               4) TI 83 or 84 Calculator (optional, but it will definitely come in handy)  
     
    • Link to Released Free Response Questions (categorized by type) 
    • Tutorials/Examples (Sooo good!)
