And my assessment/comment:

The real number is the percentage of AP Calculus that received 3 or above (that I do not know). The entire "Big Ideas" stuff, whether in mathematics, computer science, or science itself is really BS. More avoidance than embraced acceptance and success. Students are being led down a path that feels good but goes nowhere. And the AP College Boards are happily ringing the cash register as never before.
