An Advanced Placement (AP) course in calculus consists of a full high school year of work that is comparable to calculus courses in colleges and universities. It is expected that students who take an AP course in calculus will seek college credit, college placement, or both, from institutions of higher learning.
Most colleges and universities offer a sequence of several courses in calculus, and entering students are placed within this sequence according to the extent of their preparation, as measured by the results of an AP examination or other criteria.http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/apc/public/repository/ap08_calculus_coursedesc.pdf
Besides engaging students in challenging curriculum, INVS guides students to reflect on their learning and evaluate their progress through a variety of assessments. Assessments can be in the form of self-checks, practice lessons, multiple choice questions, free-response questions, matching questions discussion based oral assessments, and written discussions. Included throughout the course are AP style questions so that students gain practice with the AP Exam format. Instructors evaluate progress and provide interventions through the variety of assessments built into a course, as well as through contact with the student in other venues.
