There are 2 brand new AP Calculus publications that are now available:

1) The May 1998, May 1999 AP Calculus Course Description. This is the
official publication that discusses the philosophy, goals, and content for
Calculus AB and Calculus BC, effective the 1997-98 year and the May 1998
exams. It also contains information about timing changes for the 1998 exams
(now will be 3 hrs., 15 min.) and the fact that beginning with the May 1998
exams, a Calculus AB subscore grade will be reported for Calculus BC
students. The course description also comes with a 1 page erratum/addendum
notice.

If your school administered AP Calculus exams this year, your AP Coordinator
should have received a complimentary copy of this publication. Check with
him/her.

2) Teacher's Guide-AP Calculus. Every AP Calculus teacher needs this
publication. Dan Kennedy of the Baylor School, TN, and former Chair of the AP
Calculus Development Committee, did an outstanding job on this publication.
The publication contains 7 course syllabi from AP Calculus teachers (AB and
BC) and 2 course syllabi from first-year calculus courses. There is lots of
information about teaching AP Calculus with the new course description.

The College Board and ETS will be sending one complimentary copy of this
publication to every school that administered AP Calculus exams this year.
That mailing will be done in late July/early August. It will be addressed to
"AP Calculus Teacher." Be on the look out for it at your school later this
summer.

BOTH of these publications will be distributed at the AP Reading at Clemson
University. Each reader will receive 1 copy of both publications.

In addition, these publications are also available for order from AP Order
Services at 609-771-7243 (credit card orders) or by mail from AP Program,
P.O. Box 6670, Princeton, NJ 08541-6670. Checks should be payable to "The
College Board," or you can fax a signed institutional purchase order to 609-
406-5090. The College Board pays 4th-class book rate (or equivalent) postage
on prepaid orders. Allow 3-6 weeks for delivery. The AP Calculus Course
Description includes an order form inside the booklet. The publications will
also be available for order online from the College Board store at its
website (http://www.collegeboard.org)

Be sure to get a copy of both of these publications.
