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 following:
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.
