    Summer Review Assignment
    June 2020

    Dear Parent/Student,

    The math department suggests that you take time during your summer break to review some important topics that will help you to prepare for the Math Course that you are scheduled to take next year. Each math topic within the Khan Academy course is covered through video tutorials, interactive practice, assessment, and skill summaries all with instant feedback to help students track their progress toward mastery.

    Have a healthy and safe summer break!

    Here are some helpful resources:

    Summer Assignment for students beginning AP Calculus AB Fall 2020

    Use the following link to review concepts necessary for AP Calculus AB. CollegeBoard states "Prospective calculus students should take courses in which they study algebra, geometry, trigonometry, analytic geometry, and elementary functions. These functions include linear, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, and piecewise-defined functions. In particular, before studying calculus, students must be familiar with the properties of functions, the composition of functions, the algebra of functions, and the graphs of functions. Students must also understand the language of functions (domain and range, odd and even, periodic, symmetry, zeros, intercepts, and descriptors such as increasing and decreasing). Students should also know how the sine and cosine functions are defined from the unit circle and know the values of the trigonometric functions at quadrantal angles, reference angles and their multiples. "

Students who take AP Calculus BC should have basic familiarity with sequences and series, as well as some exposure to parametric and polar equations."
