Calculus AB: 9–13%
Calculus BC: 4–7%
Unit 3 builds upon understanding from Unit 1 and Unit 2 of AP Calculus. The two main components of Calculus are differentiating and integrating. Of these two, differentiation is the focal point of the first few units in Calculus.
This unit, in particular, emphasizes the analysis of functions, continued correct application and understanding of function notation, and the recognition of “inner” and “outer” functions within composites. Students will continue to learn how to differentiate in different ways with new techniques and strategies.
