AP Calculus Summer Work

The last week of the school year, you will need to check out a calculator and textbook from me.

Purchase a binder, dividers, page protectors, and a two subject spiral notebook.

All the vocabulary words and properties need to be written in the spiral.

The problems need to be worked NEATLY on notebook paper.  To get credit for the problems ALL work must be shown.  Write down each problem, even the word problems and then show the work under the problem.  If you are not sure how this needs to be done, please see me.  Problems without CORRECT work shown will not receive credit.

The problems will count as daily grades and averaged together to make a test grade as well.  IT is very important that you do the work.

The first day of school, there will be a Unit Circle and an Identity Test.  The Unit Circle must be memorized as well as the identities.  The third day of school there will be a test over the problems.

 

The vocabulary words and properties that will be written neatly in your spiral are:

 

Solution Point

Intercepts

x-intercept

y-intercept

The properties for Symmetry of a graph as well as the box below for tests for symmetry

Definition of Slope

Point-Slope form of the Equation of a line

Slope intercept form of a line

Summary of Equations of lines

Parallel and Perpendicular lines

Relation

Function

Independent variable

Dependent variable

Definition of real valued function of a real variable

Function notation

The basic types of transformations

Elementary functions

Leonhard Euler

Pictures of graphs of polynomial functions even and odd degree

Rational function

Transcendental

Definition of composite function

Test for Even and Odd Functions

 

 

The following problems need to be completed:

Pg 8 4-64 even, 67,68,69,70,77-80

Pg 16 2-70 even, 73,76,77,78,80,82,84,86,88

Pg 27 4-72 even 83-86 ,91,92,93,94,96,104

Pg 34 1-14 all

 

The following identities need to be memorized:

 

Definition of Six Trig Functions

Reciprocal Identities

Quotient Identities

Pythagorean Identities

Cofunction identities

Even/Odd Identities

Sum and Difference formulas

Double Angle Formulas

 

 

Do NOT wait until the last minute to finish this work.  I do not care if you work together in groups, I encourage it, but EACH OF YOU MUST SHOW WORK.  You have already been taught all the information in this chapter, some is Algebra 1 some is Precal.  The level of the questioning is harder though and will be a good preparation for AP Calculus. If you have any questions please feel free to email me or call me (before 9:00 PM).   I will not be available for help the week of June 13-18, June 27-July 3 and July 25- July 30. 

Please email me at michelle.welch@fairfieldisd.org ; my cell phone is 903-390-7028.

Have a great summer and I look forward to a great year next year!
