Today Trevor Packer Tweeted: Trevor Packer ?@AP_Trevor "Top requests for potential new AP courses? #1 Anatomy & Physiology; #2 College Algebra; #3 Engineering" I think it could be beneficial to have an AP course outline and exam for this material. Especially given the joint NCTM/MAA statement in April:
"Although calculus can play an important role in secondary school, the ultimate goal of the K?12 mathematics curriculum should not be to get students into and through a course in calculus by twelfth grade but to have established the mathematical foundation that will enable students to pursue whatever course of study interests them when they get to college." http://www.maa.org/news/2012_maanctm.html
I wonder how many universities would give credit for College Algebra?
