AP Calculus BC Flashcards
For those who want to challenge themselves mathematically, the Advanced Placement Calculus BC course is an option. The College Board notes that while the Advanced Placement (AP) Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC courses are similar and cover topics in calculus, the AP Calculus BC differs in the scope of the course. That is, it includes topics that the Calculus AB course does not. The level of difficulty is not the difference, but the information that students learn and are tested on is the difference.
The College Board recommends that high school students who are interested in taking AP Calculus BC have already taken algebra, geometry, trigonometry, analytic geometry, and elementary functions. This course covers roughly two semesters of college-level calculus, whereas the other AP Calculus course only covers the first semester.
