I teach AP Calculus to students at Watauga High School in the Blue Ridge
Mountains of North Carolina in Boone, North Carolina. 97-98 will be my 9th
year with the course. We are NOT on a block schedule and I feel for any of
you that must contend with trying to cover the AB curriculum in one
semester. Most of the NC school that are on block are keeping their AP
courses all year and changing the name somewhat to satisfy the state
department. I am currently using the Larson text and I'm looking at a copy
of the Ostebee Zorn book for supplemental problems. We cannot adopt new
books until 99, so if anyone has a list of "good" problems from the OZ book,
or any other, please let me know.
I am fortunate to be in a college town, Applachian State University, and
each year I have some students who are really talented in math, and do well
on the AP exam. Also,... I have those there for social reasons, who
struggle with the concepts as they endure "senioritis". Usually about 40
students in all, in two classes.
