  1. AP Calculus BCThe seat you pick is your assigned seat Mr. Goodrich’s Class bgoodrich@saintjoehigh.com

  2. Luke: I won't fail you. I'm not afraid.Yoda: You will be. You will be. • Calculus is much more abstract than any math you’ve done before. • To compare, algebra and geometry are 4,000 years old while calculus is 350 years old • Then you’ve selected the accelerated pace • We’ll be done with most Calc AB topics by Thanksgiving • We’ll be done with 2 semesters of college calculus by Spring Break

  3. Guiding Principle Never turn away a student who wants to learn • Questions are always welcome • I’m here 7:30 to 4:30 (especially starting in October) most days and always welcome a student coming by for extra help • Late work is accepted, but there are penalties (reduced score) • Any actions that discourage others from participating (such as mocking other students) is a punishable offense

  4. Flipped Classroom • Normally I give a lecture and then you have a lot of practice problems to do at home. • Instead, your homework will be to watch a lecture videos and then we’ll do practice problems in class • Some exceptions when you have problems for HW • There will be videos assigned night after a test • You should write down key concepts the videos • Since your laptop is playing the video, you’ll need a paper notebook • Plus it’s hard to type: • Watch the videos even if you’re absent especially

  5. Daily Quizzes • Once we get in a flow, there will be daily quizzes • 2-4 questions • Ideally I’d like you done in 10 minutes • Always passed back the next day • If absent, you will take a quiz your first day back • Your call if it’s the one you missed or the one everyone else is currently taking • You’ll have to swing by before or after to catch-up, shouldn’t take long (again, ideally 10 minutes)

  6. Standard Flow • HW: Watch videos on Topic A • In Class: Review problems on Topic A • HW: Watch videos on Topic B, study Topic A • Start Class: Quiz on Topic A • In Class: Review problems on Topic B • HW: Watch videos on Topic C, study topic B • Start Class: Quiz on Topic Bthen review Topic A Quiz • In Class: Review problems on Topic C • HW: Watch videos on Topic D, study Topic C • Start Class: Quiz on Topic C then review Topic B Quiz • In Class: Review problems on Topic D

  7. Don’t Fall Behind • This course builds, each chapter uses knowledge from the previous chapters • Ask Questions • Welcome to swing by before/after school, usually here 7:30 to 4:30, especially starting in October once the XC regular season ends • Do a little Calculus everyday: • it’s too much to cram study • When I give you time to work, WORK • Don’t game in class • We don’t have time for you to waste

  8. Grading System • Tests: 50% • Calculator and Non-calculator sections • Most will be blocks days and take up most of the block • Daily Quizzes: 30% • Some calculator, some not • Labeled as a 10 or 20 points • IMLs count as a EC towards this section • 3 per semester: 7:30 to 8:00, doors close at 7:45 AM • 1 pt per correct answer + 1 point for participation • Homework & Participation: 20% • Videos posted on website • 3 Types Questions for Tests & Quizzes • AP FRQ, AP MC, Custom Open Ended(Majority)

  9. Grading Comments • WARNING: Grading comments may be sarcastic • Described as sassy by some • Common Examples: “Really?” “?” “Noooo… so close” • FT = Follow Through: you did part A wrong but correctly used that answer to your method to find part B • BA = Bad Algebra • I often get wordy in comments so it may appear to be a lot of red for 2 comments

  10. Classroom Procedures • All quizzes, tests and work that is handed in goes in the white bin. • The black bin with your class on it has graded work that’s going back to you. • Only 1 student allowed out of the room for the bathroom at a time • Laptops will be used very little • Be respectful towards each other

  11. AP Exam • Exam: • Multiple Choice: 55 min 28Q No Calculator • Multiple Choice: 50 min 17Q Calculator • Free-Response Q: 30 min 2Q Calculator • Free-Response Q: 60 min 4Q No Calculator • Get both a BC score and an AB sub-score • Possible Scores: 1-5 • Notre Dame: 5 for Calculus Credit • IU & Purdue: 3 for Generic Math Credits 4 or 5 for Calculus Credit • Rose-Hulman: 4 or 5 for Calculus Credit

  12. Last Year’s Results • BC Exam: • 5: 12% • 4: 53% • 3: 35% • Everyone passed! • AB Subscore: • 5: 29% • 4: 71% still have to take calc 1 if they go to ND • No 1, 2 or 3’s: The flipped classroom appears to be a success
