School Supplies for 2018-2019

Since there are a lot of handouts in Calculus, it would serve you better to get a binder. You will need to keep everything that we do because you will be taking a practice AP test a week prior to the AP test and hopefully all of your will take the AP test on Tuesday May 14, 2019.

 
I keep all homework assignments during the year, so you want to make sure you are taking good notes.
