Conference Overview:Just as there is an art to calculus, there is an art to doing well on the AP Calculus exam. Come join us as we look at the new AP Calculus Course and Exam Description book and examine the types of questions found on the exam. We will also discuss how we can support students to hone their writing skills in order to respond effectively to exam questions. You will leave this workshop with a treasure trove of activities and online resources to help students reinforce their knowledge of calculus. Bring your graphing calculators and your questions as we reveal the art of success on the AP Calculus exam.
