Teacher > AP Calculus BC

The AP Program unequivocally supports the principle that each individual school must develop its own curriculum for courses labeled “AP.” Rather than mandating any one curriculum for AP courses, the AP Course Audit instead provides each AP teacher with
a set of expectations that college and secondary school faculty nationwide have established for college-level courses. More

Updated AP Calculus BC curricular requirements are available for the 2016-17 school year. AP Calculus BC teachers with previously approved syllabi are not required to revise and resubmit their syllabi. Beginning in March 2016, teachers have two options to confirm their awareness and understanding of the updated curricular requirements:

  • Option 1: Complete the AP Course Audit form and transfer a previously approved syllabus to the current school year. For detailed instructions, click here.
  • Option 2: Complete the AP Course Audit form and submit a new or revised syllabus. Teachers can either create their own syllabus that reflects the curricular requirements or adopt one of the sample syllabi available on the AP Course Audit website.
