### AP Calc AB/BC Unit 3 Review Intro

Welcome to the second unit of AP Calc! This unit is all about connecting limits and derivatives and learning how to differentiate. Have fun learning and let me know at dianamoya@loopsofkindness.com or any of our social medias if you have any questions or concerns. Learn more and get ready to achieve a 5 on the AP exam and an A+ in your class with the following carefully curated resources below!

### 1. Review Presentation

The first item on our list is a presentation I made following the College Board’s CED (Course and Exam Description). I’ve tried my best to explain every topic with illustrations and examples. For best results with this presentation, try working out the practice problems yourself and reference my notes if you need any help. A possible study strategy using this presentation is to work through Khan Academy problems using my solved problems as a guide. If this presentation helped you, please let me know 🙂

(+) Good refresher with worked practice problems following the CED

(-) More hands-on practice required

### 2. Flipped Math

Flipped Math is truly awesome for anything AP Calc, and Unit 2 is no different. If you study from any resource, I would advise you to attempt the unit review on Flipped Math to see which topics you need the most help with. Then, go into the topic page and follow along with their packet and Youtube video until you can do some practice problems by yourself. Flipped Math was my bestie for AP Calc, and for good reason.

(+) Organized according to the CED, AP Style Questions, lots of practice; packets for note-taking

### 3. Krista King's Review

Krista King’s Youtube Reviews are great if you want a more in-depth explanation of any topic with worked out practice problems. She goes slowly and explains all of her steps in detail. She also has some more practice on the Ultimate Review Packet website for every unit, but it’s paid (~$25).

(+) Great explanations, practice problems

(-) Review packet with more practice costs money

### 4. 3Blue1Brown

3Blue1Brown’s Youtube videos offer some of the clearest explanations of calculus you can find. His free “Essence of Calculus” course on Youtube is absolutely amazing to help you really understand the concepts. His videos feature clean animations that aid in understanding the topic thoroughly.

(+) Absolutely amazing, some of the best explanations with clear animations for visual learners

(-) It can be a bit tiring to sit through a 20 minute calculus video, but it is absolutely worth it.

### 5. Paul's Online Math Notes

A treasure trove for any calculus student, Paul’s Online Math Notes offer in-depth notes with great explanations, practice problems, and extra assignment problems for free. The only drawback is that it is not structured according to the CollegeBoard curriculum, so you might have to dig around for what you’re looking for. However, the search is usually worth it, since the explanations and examples are crystal clear.

### 6. IITian Academy

An unknown resource with real AP-style questions, IITian Academy offers MCQs and FRQs for all AP Calc topics. It’s particularly useful if you have run out of other practice questions and want some harder ones, just like the AP Classroom quizzes/progress checks. This website also offers a ton of other reviews for AP subjects (It’s saved me in AP Bio multiple times). I recommend this website for students who already know what they’re doing and want extra difficult practice similar to what the AP exam will ask.

(+) Actual AP Questions organized by the CED

(-) Answers are not explained thoroughly sometimes; only practice questions
