AB Mid-Winter Break Practice Exam - INSTRUCTIONS (distributed in class and hyperlinked here)

AB Mid-Winter Break Bellwork – Calculator Examples (distributed in class and in documents)

I would advise students to take advantage of the free printing at the Covington Library.  You only need to print out the pages with MCQs.  Getting used to the feel and format of the actual test prior to AP Exam Day really helps.

Be prepared to AB share your detailed test correctionson 2/26/2018 (first day after break).

D's and F's on the last three exams and not sure what to do before your next test/retest?

1) Actively quiz yourself using:AB Practice Tests Tab / AB Practice Test Depot.  Predict what sort of problems will be on the exam (I try to help you with that by posting many practice exams.).  Solve those predicted problems prior to each exam; that would be active quizzing!  Create your own examples.  Skimming notes is crap as a college math study habit.  Re-writing or annotating notes while reworking examples out of your notes is active studying.  When in doubt, work through one of those blank tests from the AB Practice Tests Tab, score yourself, perform detailed test corrections, and use the problems you got incorrect to guide your further study.

2) Aim to complete and understand 100% of the homework (including MCQs/FRQs):  

  a) Come in to the Q&A sessions, before school, or after school and get every question you have on every problem answered.  And/or form study groups for the same purpose.  If you get stumped by a problem over break, write down your question, snap a picture with your phone, and email me the question.  I will generally respond within 48 hours.

  b) If you have to use the solutions or get help on a problem, find a similar problem to attempt on your own after you understand the first problem.  Stop being obsessed with doing the minimum.

  c) If you have to look up a formula to start a problem, copy that formula down in pen in the margin of your work, say the formula out loud, make a flash card for that formula, etc.  Use every possible trick to commit as many of these formulas to memory as possible.  Looking above at the previous problem for a formula does VERY LITTLE for long term memory building for many students.  Looking isn't good enough for AP Exams.

3) Re-evaluate your study habits:  Experiment with new study habits prior to college to find what works best for you.  

Study Habits for Math in College / Study Habits for Calculus / Study Habits for AP Calculus

4) Order a Princeton Review AP Prep. Book for Calc. or check one out from the school library.  Force yourself to schedule 1-2 hour blocks where you just start at the beginning of that book and move forward (all the way back to limits).

5) Schedule a retest for 4.1-5.4 Test - Part 1 - Blue Partand/or 4.1-5.4 Test - Part 1 - Purple Partas soon as you PROVE you are ready to yourself using your improved study habits!

Friday 2/16/2018 - Part 2 Test Review Day!

Open the appropriate version of the solutions:

AB 1st Semester Final – Form C – Solutions and Scoring Rubric (in documents)

or

AB 1st Semester Final – Form D – Solutions and Scoring Rubric (in documents)

Perform detailed test correctionsas normal.

Even though you wouldn’t have to on an actual AP test, when doing test corrections force yourself to use accurate notation and calculus terminology at all times as you rework any problem you missed from scratch.

Also work through any problem you guessed on!  Aim to understand every problem inside and out.

Not satisfied with your score on the final?  Please consider utilizing the resources at the top of the page ("The AP Prep Quartet") extensively between now and May 15th.  May 15th is a long way away, but you can guarantee yourself a 3+ by putting enough time in mastering the relevant content AND test format.  On another note, I tend to grade harder than the actual College Board FRQ scorers, because I want your notation to ultimately meet a college standard AND an AP Exam standard.

Thursday 12/14/2017

Please see announcement at the top of the page about your Winter Break Assignment and my absence tomorrow.

Read using slideshow: 4.5 AB Notes Day 1 - Integration by Substitution (in documents)

Read 4.5.  Make sure every single example makes sense to you. 

If necessary, provide annotated examples from the homework problems in your notes for every property and situation you uncover in the reading, including reading the examples.

4.5 Part 1 (1-6, 13-37 every other odd (e.o.o), 48, 53)

Correct with: 4.5 MORE Complete Solutions - Part 1 (in Calculus Book Solutions)

If your work looks different than mine, critically examine every bit of your notation for errors.

NO SHORTCUTS! Go through the full u-substitution procedure for 13-37 e.o.o and 48/53.

1) Examine the integral and choose an appropriate u.

2) Find du.

2a) (Only for Definite Integrals) Find the limits of integration in the u-universe.  Find u(a) and u(b).

3) Substitute.  Now your integral should be in terms of u.

4) Evaluate the integral in the u-universe.

5) Don't forget to substitute back into the x-universe!

6) At step 4) OR step 5), you should check your result by differentiation.  If you are comfortable taking chain rule derivatives in your head, you could even perform this check mentally.

1) Please use SLIDESHOW!: Read 4.1 Notes - Antidifferentiation (in documents)

2) That wasn't so bad.  When starting out in Chapter 4, always take a derivative to check your anti-differentiation!  (Very enthusiastic video covering that ideaif you start that video, go ahead and finish it!  8 minutes of his sassiness won't kill you.  Some would call that a horrible math video, but if you went through the notes first, all of his sass should make sense.  I bet you can find way better math videos for 4.1 using appropriate search terms of your own!).

3) Next: Read 4.1. (seriously, read it!).

4) Now, explore some of these videos until you have your head wrapped around all of this new information: Introduction to the Antiderivative / Introduction to Indefinite Integration / Full Lectures / Professor Leonard Full Lecture

5) Whenever you are ready, start on: 4.1 Part 1 (17, 21, 27, 29, 35, 38, 41, 42, 45-47, 49) - Be brutal about correcting your notation errors!

Product Description

Calculus Extrema Critical Values, Absolute Extrema

This activity is designed for Calculus 1 or AP Calculus. It is part of the third unit, Applications of the Derivative. Students find critical values, and then apply them to find extreme values. This engaging activity is excellent practice and enrichment to reinforce a lesson before the first derivative test.

Included:

☑ Task Cards: There are of 20 cards which are numerically coded.
#1 – 7 Determine all the critical values
#8 – 9 Determine all the critical values on a particular interval
#10 – 12 Identify the critical points and find the maximum and minimum value on the given interval.
#13 – 20 Find the absolute extreme values of the function on the interval.

New! I have also included a B/W version of the Task Cards for easy printing.

☑ Master List of questions with answer key.
☑ Student response sheets with room for students to show their work.
☑ Worksheet with similar problems. The worksheet can be used in class or
as Homework, Assessment, or Enrichment.

There are many ways to vary the activity. Use as Task Cards in groups or with stations. Guide to using Task Cards included.
