Prerequisites:

“Before studying calculus, all students should complete four years of secondary mathematics designed for college-bound students: courses in which they study algebra, geometry, trigonometry, analytic geometry, and elementary functions. These functions include those that are linear, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, and piecewise defined. In particular, before studying calculus, students must be familiar with the properties of functions, the algebra of functions.”

What follows are the instructions that students see at the top of the A.P. exams in calculus.

Instructions at the top of Section II: Advanced Placement Calculus Examinations:

Time------ 1 hour and 30 minutes

Number of Problems ---- 6

Percent of total grade ----- 50

__SHOW ALL YOUR
WORK__. Indicate clearly the methods you use

because you will be graded on
the correctness of your methods as

well as on the accuracy of your
final answers. If you choose to use

decimal approximations, your answers
should be correct to three decimal

places.
