AP Calculus: AB Free Response Exam Preparation

 Demystifying the AB Calculus Free Response Exam
 

 

The story is always the same: A teacher has covered the entire AP Calculus AB curriculum and feels good that he or she has addressed the entire gamut of problem types. Yet, when the students look at the actual free-response questions in the exam, they wonder "when was that taught?" and "did we ever do a problem like that?" Frequently, these students are befuddled, especially when they haven't spent a lot of time reviewing past AP released exams.

 

With that concept in mind, this guide will cover a good many topics that research has shown to have been part of most Advanced Placement Calculus AB free-response questions in the past 20 years. I first look at them as separate entities, and then quickly see how they are incorporated into an actual AP test type problem. Finally, several of these topics are put together to mimic what students will see in the actual AP Calculus AB Exam. Best of all, it is all FREE!

 

Using this 74-page manual, students will become skilled at the types of problems that typically have been on AP Calculus AB Exams for the past 20 years. There are 83 examples, most having subparts and then 18 practice problems, similar to AP free response problems. Students will learn to recognize the multifaceted nature of complex problems and how to approach the challenge. This guide will provide an in-depth level of understanding so that students do not spend time in the actual AP Exam scratching their heads!

 

You may download any or all of the material below FREE OF CHARGE. There are topics for individual download and you can download them all in one fell swoop if you want (about 7 megabytes). There are also three 6-question sample tests available for free download as well. Room is provided for students to write in answers. 

 

Detailed solutions are available for purchase. The solutions are inserted right under the problem so that you can see the problem and solution at the same time. You may either download the solutions (approximately 15 MB split into 5 PDF files) or have them mailed to you.
