Summer AP Homework
May 27, 2020
Dear AP Calculus Student,
There is a certain amount of work that needs to be done this summer to help you be successful in AP Calculus next year. If you will be in Calculus AB, you will need to do one chapter of work this summer. If you will be in AP Calculus BC, you will need to do two chapters of work.
We will be using Schoology for this summer work, but we can’t enroll you in the official Schoology course that will start in September. In the meantime, you will need to register for the summer course. Go to Schoology, and add a course. Type in the course code: For Calculus BC it’s 32336-6HGRN, for Calculus AB it’s CSMWB-THTX5.
On the Schoology page you will find a folder for the summer work that needs to be completed. There are links for videos for each lesson, blank notes to fill in, as well as an assignment sheet and answers for you to check your work. You will also find a link for the online textbook (pdf versions of each section from chapter 1 and 2). You will need the book to look at examples and find the homework problems.
For Calculus AB, you will work on chapter 1. Points will be assigned for the homework and you will be tested on the material. The test for chapter 1 will be on Friday, Sept 11.
For Calculus BC, you will work on chapters 1 and 2. You will earn points for both chapter 1 and chapter 2 homework. These will be turned in for points when you begin school in September. You will take a combined test on chapters 1 and 2 on Friday, Sept. 11.
For both courses, the first few days of class are set aside for you to ask questions that you might have, and to explain more about the course.
Lastly, we would like you to be aware of the following policy: if you fail a trimester of AP Calculus, you will be dropped for the remaining trimesters. The grading scale is closer to a college grading scale, so students must score at least 65% to pass the course.
We look forward to working with you next year. Have a great summer!
Mr. Dan Peterson Ms. Kristin Peterson
Welcome to AP Chemistry!
I’m very excited that you have decided to join me in the AP Chemistry adventure at Apple Valley! We had a great year in AP Chem, and I am looking forward to the challenge of challenging you next year! We currently have 21 students enrolled and if you have any friends that are still thinking about it, twist their arm. We’d love to have more.
A brief bit about me… I have lived in Apple Valley for the last 15 years with my wife and my two girls, Marin (15… a Freshman at Eastview) and Piper (13… a 7th grader at Falcon Ridge). I love teaching at AVHS, I’m enthusiastic about being an Eagle. It feels good here.
As you move into summer, I have a few tasks for you that will help us get off the ground and running when we first meet in September. I can’t wait to get to know you better.
- ASAP, Please sign up for “Remind” using these these instructions.
- Once you sign up, please send a text/message to me via remind that states your name and something you are looking forward to this summer.
- I have added you to a Summer AP Schoology course. Please accept the invitation. I will be posting new assignments throughout the summer for you to work on before school starts that review basic concepts from your first year Chemistry Course.
- A digital version of our textbook is located in the Schoology Course. If you would like a hard copy before school starts, please let me know.
In the meantime, if you have questions, you may contact me through the summer, at any time. I respond to Remind, Schoology, or email at Edward.Murray@district196.org.
