This ap-calculus EDG will be closing in the next few weeks. Please sign up for the new AP Calculus
Teacher Community Forum at
and post messages there.
I am going to send this identical post to both forums. It was prompted by the following community post on the physics site.

RE: I miss EDG: let's have it right here!

Thank you. I got it to work in Chrome. Had to use advanced settings.


While it is obvious that poor Joe finally got it to work correctly, we have all acknowlegded that the traffic here has declined. If we are persistent and click three times instead of once, we will still get to the same objective.

My post is more of a statement to managers aka administration, without consulting with the people who actually do the job. I am not questioning the sincerity of those involved nor to I want to question their seemingly positive intentions. But, it seems that between the two communities, there is a frustration not only with the procedural transition but also with the adaptability of the program. Simply stated, it should get easier instead of harder.

I feel that I have so much more to learn on how to become a more effective teacher and was doing quite nicely until recently. However, now for some reason I feel the brakes have been put on.

Since this EDG is going to be closed soon, if we don't figure out 1. How to use the community effectively
2. How to impress staff at college board to do some revamping to make it easier (enhance connectivity between posts and reply i.e. one step, not three)
3. New teachers will not have it as good as ones in the past to achieve better results quicker.

Not to make this like a chain letter but if you agree HONK!!!


and to end like Dan on the physics site......

(where we know something is rotten in the State of Denmark)
