With the description of the AP exam changing this year, it seems that AP
calculus teachers have more choice as to what topics to teach. The
calculus teachers in my dept are wondering if it is necessary to teach the
old stand-bys Work and Trig substitution (integrals of the form
int(sqr(a^2-u^2),du) etc. My reading is that these topics could be done by
the AP teacher but are not strictly required for the AP exam. Is that an
accurate reading of the new Acorn book? Am I misreading something?

Thanks for any response.
