I have assigned two “quizzes” on myap.collegeboard. One is multiple choice with 18 questions and the other is a free response with 2 questions (which you will be able to score your own frq). These are NOT for a grade in any way, BUT they are valuable for you to selfcheck your understanding of Unit 1. I have a due date so you can set a deadline for yourself and because I can’t leave them open indefinitely.

Welcome back!! I hope you’re excited to jump into the world of Calculus!
One big difference in calculus, is I will not be posting worksheets/notes on the blog. I use several sources that are paid for, and putting their stuff online is prohibited. You will always have a copy waiting for you when you return when you are absent, or you can get it early, or you can ask a classmate to pick it up for you.
