Taking Advanced Placement (AP® ) courses and exams shows you can succeed with college-level work. And that’s just the start.

AP courses are designed to be the equivalent of entry-level university courses. The College Board’s AP Program enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue university-level studies — with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement or both — while still in high school. AP Exams are given each year in May. A score of 3 or higher on an AP Exam can typically earn students university credit and/or placement into advanced courses in university.

Advanced Placement courses can help you:
• Prepare for the rigors of college academics,
• Skip introductory-level college classes
• Save on tuition

Course Spotlight: Advanced Placement – Calculus AB

The Advanced Placement Calculus AB course is a is the equivalent of a first semester university calculus course devoted to topics in differential and integral calculus. The rigor and pace of this course is consistent with calculus offerings at many universities and will prepare students for the Advanced Placement® Exam.

Upon successful completion of the exam, students may receive college credit and will be well-prepared for additional advanced mathematics coursework.

AP Calculus AB builds upon prior knowledge in previous mathematics course work. Students will explore topics within the three big ideas covered in the course: (1) Rates of change, (2) Limits, and (3) Analysis of Functions. This course allows students to gain conceptual understanding through discussions, group activities and investigations.

In order to prepare for the exam, students will complete weekly AP practice quizzes and unit exams that will conform to the constraints of the AP exam.

Students enrolled in Uchenna Academy Advanced Placement courses are expected to take the AP exam. Exam results will not affect the student’s mathematics grade.
