    • AP Calculus AB Exam Information
    • Link to Released Free Response Questions (categorized by type) 
    Excellent resource although a couple of the links don't match up. I'm working on editing this.  Excellent nonetheless!!!!
    When you click on the link below, it is the first option that appears on Google.

    You can use a calculator on #1 for both years. The solutions can easily be found online for these. We have learned how to solve these already so make sure you're comfortable with these.

    On the Wednesday we get back, I'll be looking to see both your work on and the corrections in a different color. That'll be your first grade of the 3rd quarter.  

    Also: It might be (and by might be, I mean would be (and by would be, I mean that you should)) pick up an AP Calculus AB 2018 Prep book over the break. Princeton Review is excellent.  It's $15 on Amazon. We'll start using this a ton starting February 15th. 

    Don't go the entire break without practicing your math, start flipping through the Test Prep book.

           ***ATTENTION: New homework policy starting 2nd semester...and this pertains to any assignment from the Textbook...each assignment IS required, but the amount of problems you do is OPTIONAL.  As you did with the midterm review: however many problems it takes you to be comfortable with the material, you do and turn that in.  A recommended amount of problems will be assigned on the website, but you do what you think to be successful and to retain the information.  Also, these homework problems from the textbook are "AP caliber"/ "AP type" problems but because they don't have the multiple choice options, they don't appear to be of the same rigor. I wouldn't assign them if I didn't think they were beneficial to you.
