  1. We school year round, so except for online classes, we start and finish whenever we start and finish. So it looks like we will finish AoPS PreCalculus by December. The plan is for dd15 to take AP calculus next year with an online course, starting in the fall. Since she hasn't had discrete math, I was thinking about starting her on AoPS Intermediate C&P. But I know she (ever the planner) will want to do what she can to prepare for AP Calc BC. (She has a good handle on PreCalc, solving all but the Putnam, IMO, and similar problems, lol.) What are your ideas for math for
  2. Hi all, I have a math education decision to make for ds14 who is STEM directed. He is talking Algebra 2 currently through Wilson Hill Academy which he really likes. If I follow their sequence, he will be taking Pre-Calc in 10th, followed by AP Calculus his junior year. His senior year would most likely be a college math course (Calculus or Statistics). Alternatively, he is beginning to take classes at our local CC which has a solid reputation for math and science. They have articulation agreements with our CSU/UC universities. He could start Pre-Calculus there next year which is a
  3. Hello: I am looking for some AP Calculus help. Is the Saxon Calculus text sufficient to take the AP Calculus AB exam? Thank you to anyone who can help!
  4. If so, which text did he/she use? DD will use Saxon Advanced Mathematics and then after that I am unsure.... Saxon Calc. or Larson's or something else? She really wants to take the AP Exam for BC Any thoughts are appreciated.
  5. This packet of pre-calculus problems (with solutions) may be useful summer review for students taking calculus in the fall. http://www.harrisonhigh.org/_pdf/CalculusAB_PrerequisitePacket.pdf 'Students need a strong foundation to be ready for the rigorous work required throughout the term. Completing the prerequisite packet should prepare you for the material to be taught in the course. This packet consists of material studied during Algebra II and Analysis. Students should anticipate working approximately 10 hours to complete it properly. This packet includes • A copy
  6. I can't believe my ds is almost finished with high school. Only one more year. He's at the point math-wise, where he'll be doing calculus next year but there don't seem to be many options for calculus in the homeschooling sphere. Has anyone here done this with their kids and what did you use?
  7. HI ALL! If we use one of these textbooks with the idea of taking the Ap Cal BC test at the end, we'll be okay right?? i absolutely have no clue and I just can't spend another brain cell trying to decide. He's going into STEM, hopes to get into MIT, is self taught and I will have a tutor on hand every couple of weeks for him or as needed. Will any of these books be okay? Serve him well? DO him right?? I just don't know anything other than looking at the titles makes this non mathy head hurt!:D (I'm not even sure what the titles mean!) Somebody decide for me! Calculus I: Early Tr
  8. A few weeks ago someone posted a link that had numerous multiple choice timed practice test sections. I bookmarked it on my laptop that was fried when our 10 yr spilled water on the keyboard. I have searched the forums and I cannot find it. Does anyone know what I am talking about or have a similar type link? TIA
  9. Hoping others will give their stories for both AB and BC so people will be able to see the options...and I know we used a lot of materials - I was nervous over here...:). But he did get a 5 and did it in one semester (just AB). My problem was keeping up with the correcting since when someone is doing 2-3 hours of math a day - the problems add up quickly! Since I think it is important to give background I'm starting back at grade school.... First, family background - while I did do a year of Calculus in college - I had completely forgotten it, so my son didn't have the advantage
  10. Has anyone had their dc self-study for and take the AP Calculus AB exam? If so, how did you prepare and how did it go for your dc? What resources did you use? My 11th grade dd is doing Thinkwell’s AP Calculus AB course this year and we’re supplementing with a calculus text we already own (Anton, Bivens and Davis--which is on the College Board’s list) for extra practice. I’m wrestling with whether to have Dd try going for the AP Calculus test or not. She’s probably headed for life sciences, and probably going to be looking at selective colleges. She will take the AP Ch
  11. Free Videos Online UC Open Access - Gives coordinated reading from several common texts. NROC (Monterey Institute) - appears to be same as UC Open Access above. Eg. Calculus AB - semester 1 is the same National Math and Science Initiative AP Calculus wiki for AB and BC There is writing with printed equations and a voice explaining. Includes handout to go with the lecture. This is new and still developing in 2010-11 so the server goes off for a few minutes sometimes. Khan Academy MIT Openware Calculus-Help.com only has Limits and Continuity and Finding De
  12. My son is working on AP Calculus AB. In the AP Course Description and other calculus materials it talks about working on some problems or projects with other students. He is going to do some with his older brother, but I thought I would see if there is anyone else doing the subject now who would be interested so that they are all at the same place so to speak? It is possible to do online groups using such sites as scriblink.com (max 6 users) OR http://vyew.com/s/ (max 10 users) where there a whiteboard that all can see and write on at the same time. There is audio, so you can talk t
  13. I'm wondering if anyone has any quizzes that they are willing to share that just test the "Stuff to Know Cold" type of info? What I mean by that is that I want my ds to be working on memorizing the above info, and from time to time, I want to give him a quiz that just covers that info. Though I guess they might not cover it all at once.... And do you have any other list of stuff that has to be memorized for the AP AB? Thanks! Joan
  14. My son cannot figure out how to do "summations" on the 84+SE or the TI-Nspire - anyone know if it is possible? (He can do them on the nongraphing one) Also I'm concerned that I do not really understand calculator use on the AP Calc exam.... He has taken some of his tests without any calculator at all, but he's still using his nongraphing calculator on homework. I see that on the problems in the Larson Calculus book, there is a little symbol for the calculator next to certain problems. Does that mean that he should not be using any calculator for the other problems (the ones without a g
  15. Ds is doing block scheduling for Calculus, preparing for the AP AB exam (though I wouldn't mind hearing about materials for the BC exam as well), so we're just getting into this subject... I've researched lots of syllabi online and am pretty overwhelmed. If it was just going through the book with DVD's and two review books it would seem easy, but now the more I look, the more I find.... For example, on some syllabi, there are all these extra problem solving questions and calculus projects, then there are labs and explorations in other places. On the AP site, there are 5 modules and
  16. I found a Calculus syllabus on the web (in the US), and on it, the teacher has a slot for "oral exams" at least once in the year. For my ds2 who did Swiss high school, they always had written and oral exams for math. (This reminds me of Jane in NC's thread about talking about math). Anyway, I'm wondering if any of you have done this? If so, do you have a format to suggest? Or any other suggestions about how to do it? My ds2 is not much help about this type of thing - as he likes to speak with as few words as possible usually. Thanks! Joan
  17. PBWM (please bear with me) after my Calc thread earlier this year.... After that thread, I thought it best to use Larson for Calculus and got all the materials in prep for December. Then ds started Precalculus first with Dolciani, then dipped into Larson Precalc, then moved to Foerster Precalc because he did not like how Larson was written. He really likes the way things are explained in Foerster Precalc and is now steaming ahead. He really did not like the way things were explained in Larson and found it hard to understand.. So I got worried and ordered all the materials for
  18. Of if your ds/d just took it, if they think they did well.... Could I ask what you used? I'd like to hear from both groups, knowing that it still takes good materials....but since I'm in the "not" group, it would be nice to know if it is possible... I'm trying to order books to pick up in the US...just in case he'll have enough time to prepare for the AP next spring...Ds is planning on working on precalc through the summer.... Thank you! Joan
  19. Hi all: My first post after testing how to post a few minutes back. 3-4 times a week I plan to to provide solution to calculus and physics problems posted here in this forum. My only requirement is that please check the problem statement for errors/typos. Also, if possible please do include the answer, particularly for Calculus FRQ (Free Response Questions as on AP exam). Knowing answer saves time to me in redundantly checking already correct solution. I plan to give solution in plain text format here in this forum and if I am not too busy, step by step YouTube type solution by email m
  20. My daughter is interested in self-studying for the AP Chemistry and AP Calculus. Can anyone share their experience with either of these courses? What text did you use, were there plenty of study helps online, and how much time was required daily? Is it possible to go it alone without an online study group? She just completed the AP Biology successfully solo and is excited about continuing AP coursework. (I am the one experiencing heart palpatations.:001_unsure:) Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
