Re: [apcalculus] resources for a student

For such a longterm arrangement, I would suggest one of the MIT courses rather than Khan. Since the videos are of the entire lecture sequence, your student is will get exposed to motivation and connections rather than just how do we solve problems like this. The math courses are listed at: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mathematics/. I suggest looking at a lecture or two yourself from 18.01sc, 18.01 and possibly 18.013A and suggest one of them to your student. Hippocampus is another option: http://www.hippocampus.org/Calculus%20%26%20Advanced%20Math;jsessionid=921D44AF08E97108EC58840A237EC0DC for AB or http://www.hippocampus.org/Calculus%20%26%20Advanced%20Math;jsessionid=921D44AF08E97108EC58840A237EC0DC for BC. There is also Visual Calculus http://archives.math.utk.edu/visual.calculus/.

He wouldn't get course credit, but he could learn the material and be ready for the AP exam. My idea is to send him my assignments and answers.
