BC Scheduling - An Alternative

At our school, Menlo-Atherton High, we have approximately 90 AP Calculus
students. We have a summer program for students who want to do BC. We
need approximately 1/3 of our students to buy into our program. We do the

Calculus AB 19 summer school days at 3:75 hours each

= 71.25 hours = 4275 minutes

Calculus BC 154 periods throughout Fall and Spring at 55 minutes each

= 154 x 55 = 8470 minutes

Total Time for BC exam = 12,745 minutes

This allows us to teach the entire BC course and review prior to the BC
exam. We begin integration in the fall after covering differentiation and
its applications in the summer. So, no, we cannot do it in 8,100 minutes
or even 9,900 minutes. I would actually like to have even more time than
12,745 minutes if it were possible.
