AP Calculus® Summer Bootcamp (2024-25)

9th session

In this series we will be going over the AP Calculus AB/BC curriculum in a lecture-style format with tons of practice along the way. This series is perfect for anyone taking AP Calculus in the upcoming school year as we’ll spend time on various concepts to not only get you ready for AP Calc, but to fully understand it for the AP national Exam. Note: All sessions have not been added, however there are only 4 more (reflected on syllabus). This series will end on August 22, 2024 -- Syllabus: [https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/pycxtn037zvay601f15zd/Syllabus-AP-Calc-Summer-2024-Bootcamp-3.pdf?rlkey=imq7wbft89tb08uc96wdb0x60&e=1&st=5bgmngz4&dl=0](https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/pycxtn037zvay601f15zd/Syllabus-AP-Calc-Summer-2024-Bootcamp-3.pdf?rlkey=imq7wbft89tb08uc96wdb0x60&e=1&st=5bgmngz4&dl=0) [](https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/pycxtn037zvay601f15zd/Syllabus-AP-Calc-Summer-2024-Bootcamp-3.pdf?rlkey=imq7wbft89tb08uc96wdb0x60&e=1&st=5bgmngz4&dl=0) Course structure: Instead of using existing lecture notes or following the order of the AP Calc curriculum, I have optimized the structure of our sessions so that we maximize the time learning important concepts and for understanding them. At the end, you will end up learning majority of the course. And by doing the practice problem sets (discussed later), you could master the entire curriculum. Lecture Notes: These will be posted in advance of about 2-3 sessions. You do not have to worry about printing them as they would be very minimal and I promote the idea of writing as I go so we all can stay at a good pace. Please write along as I do so that you can take the complete benefit of our sessions. Practice Problem Set and Homework: While each session will be done with the assumption that you haven't done the practice problems, they are still there for your benefit. However, in my many semesters of being in calculus classes, those who grind practice problems are the most successful. There is almost a direct correlation. Note about structure of sessions: Even though they are just 1hr 15min, I have left 45 minutes after our session for those who want to stay and ask me questions and/or go over additional practice. I will be available entirely from 3pm to 5pm. But for those who are feeling fine can leave freely! [](https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/pycxtn037zvay601f15zd/Syllabus-AP-Calc-Summer-2024-Bootcamp-3.pdf?rlkey=imq7wbft89tb08uc96wdb0x60&e=1&st=5bgmngz4&dl=0) Questions/Talk to me: I will dedicate my time to entirely ensuring that every student in my session is able to understand the concepts completely. I will always be available to ensure that you understand the concepts and practice problems. And if you have any other questions about high school, college admissions, etc, feel free to let me know!

AP Calculus AB/BC Curriculum

3rd session

Twice a week, we'll build on the Calculus curriculum, in order to get the perfect score! After getting a 5 on my test, I know exactly how to drill and learn the techniques necessary for good test taking. We'll crunch during the summer, and I'll highlight AB/BC topics as necessary. If you're taking AB next year, but want to get a head start, or if you're preparing for BC, this series is for you!

AP Calculus BC

19th session

We will cover each unit for AP Calculus BC. We will also cover all AP Calculus AB material needed for the BC exam since AB is approximately 60%. We will also do official CollegeBoard MCQs and FRQs from the past 15 years. There will be notes provided but it is up to the learner's discretion to jot them down. Additionally, a graphing calculator is necessary to be able to do certain problems.

Get Ready For AP Calculus AB

3rd session

I will be covering Units 1-8 of the Collegeboard AP Calculus AB course. I will be following the Collegeboard curriculum. This course will require around 1-2 hours of work outside of our sessions because I am very briefly running through these topics (each unit has 5-14 topics) as a prep course for AP Calc AB. By the beginning of August, my goal is to cover all of Unit 1, so that you are all prepared for the upcoming school year. During our sessions, I encourage you to ask questions and try your best to participate and work through problems.

AP Calculus BC: Proofs and Applications

2nd session

From the abstract theory to effortless applications, this series will be an overview to everything a student will encounter in a Calculus BC class. Not only will students know the simple tricks to integrals and derivatives, the tutors will also explain the proofs and allow students to understand the WHY in the realm of Calculus. We will go over all the necessary topics in a typical calculus class - from simple derivatives all the way to Taylor Series and understanding advanced polar graphs. There will be multiple tutors hosting this series to ensure that all students understand the content thoroughly. All tutors are REQUIRED to have at least a 5 on the AP Calculus BC test, to best ensure the quality of the bootcamp. With the high quality of the bootcamp, students are required to attend every single session. If a student misses more than 2 sessions without prior notice, they will be booted for taking up a valuable spot of the series. To take the most out of the course, students should have a prerequisite of at least a precalculus or Algebra 2 class. Spots are LIMITED - only the first 15 people may sign up. First come, first serve.

Flipped Classroom - AP Calculus AB Summer Crash Course

4th session

This five-week series will function with a flipped classroom - meaning you'll learn topics in your own time, practicing and ask questions during the sessions. This series is designed to be very fast paced and learner-oriented, so expect to be active in sessions and dedicate some time to learning whenever it fits your own schedule! I will not be giving lectures. Communication through microphone is preferred, but I understand completely if you would rather use the chat. Sessions will be twice a week on Wednesdays and Sundays at 7:30 PM PT. The plan is to cover the AP Calculus AB curriculum by mid-August. If you plan on registering as a learner, please read the following: Outside sessions: - Watch videos and do Khan Academy practice problems - Write a problem and solution (this isn't nearly as hard as it sounds, don't fret!) During sessions: - We'll start off by checking in to see if there's any specific questions from learners - Learners will pick a topic from what we're covering that session and give a brief explanation, presenting their practice problem (other learners will try to solve it and give feedback on the problem) - We'll wrap everything up with some more practice problems! This can all sound very intimidating at first, but it'll get easier with practice! AP Calculus AB can be challenging, and I hope that this series helps serve to prepare for that challenge during the school year. Resources are currently TBD. Co-hosts welcome (please DM first)!

Get Ready for AP Calculus AB with a 5-Scorer!

3rd session

Hello! Welcome to the AP Calculus AB Crash Course! In this series, we'll aim to get through the entire AP Calculus AB course. I'll also give you tips on how to prepare for the class & exam! Each session will have a unique focus that will be outlined in the individual descriptions. Generally, we'll do some notes followed with some fun, interactive practice! Also, please make sure you have a basic understanding of Algebra & Pre-Calculus. It's completely okay if you struggle with some Pre-Calculus topics, but a strong understanding of Algebra (especially solving equations) is really important. As we go on this learning journey together, I hope that you end up enjoying Calculus as much as I do! PS - I'll keep adding sessions as we go along! :)

  • Introduction to Integrals: A Calculus Workshop

11:15 PM - 12:15 AM

During our session, we will cover the basics of integrals, including their definition, significance, and relationship to derivatives. Hopefully, you've already had some level of experience with derivatives in the past. We will explore both definite and indefinite integrals, learn basic techniques of integration, and understand their graphical interpretation as the area under a curve, and more!
