**AP Calculus AB Exam**

Calculus AB is a course in single-variable calculus that includes techniques and applications of the derivative, techniques and applications of the definite integral, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. It is equivalent to at least a semester of calculus at most colleges and universities, perhaps to a year of calculus at some. Algebraic, numerical, and graphical representations are emphasized throughout the course.

So that students might better appreciate the connections among various representations, it is assumed that they will have access to graphing calculators in class and on homework. To that end, and to shift the emphasis from mere computation to a deeper understanding of concepts, graphing calculators are required on portions of the AP Examination.

Prerequisites for the student include two years of algebra and a year of geometry, plus a strong background in elementary functions and their graphs, including trigonometry (usually gained in an additional course called precalculus or college algebra). Attitude prerequisites include a willingness to work both in and out of class, a willingness to collaborate with classmates to foster mutual understanding, and a sincere intent to place out of the first semester of college calculus rather than repeat it.
