AP® Calculus BC

Davidson College via edX

Overview

In this calculus course, you will learn all the Calculus BC topics that are not part of the AP® Calculus AB curriculum by engaging with video instruction, exam-style questions and interactive activities.

Each topic is 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:

  1. L’Hospital’s Rule
  2. Parametric Equations
  3. Introduction to Series
  4. Series Convergence
  5. Series Manipulation
  6. Arclength
  7. Euler’s Method
  8. Improper Integrals
  9. Integration Techniques: Partial Fractions
  10. Integration Techniques: Integration by Parts
  11. The Calculus of Polar Functions

This course is specifically designed for students who have already taken (or are currently enrolled in) Calculus AB. This course combined with a traditional Calculus AB course will prepare students to take the Calculus BC exam.
