HELP!
Posted: Aug 3, 1998 5:25 PM

This will be my second year teaching AP Calculus AB.
My first year was a disaster I had 23 in my class and they only took =
it
because they didnot had to do a school final test, and they would pas=
s the
class, out of the 23 only five actually took the test, and of course =
all of
them got an score of 1.
This year I said only if you take the AP test you can be in my class,=
8 students and we worked better.
I thought this year at least one of my students could pass the test, =
but
out of 8 students: 1 got a 2 and all the rest got a 1.

I'm using Calculus with analytic geometry by ellis & Gullick 1989.

Here in Managua, Nicaragua is difficult to find good resources for my=
AP,
I've tried hard but I think it is not enough.

Anyone that is willing to share books, AP type practice problems(we =
didn't
do much this year), or any information that can help my class please =
help me.

The real problem was part B(six problems), i think my students were n=
ot
prepared, we need like a book with many sample problems.=20
If you could help please send any information to my e-mail:
or to the school mailing address:
