You did it! You finally finished the content! So what if you only spent three days on integrals for volumes…it’s time to start reviewing for the AP Calc Exam! Whether you have 5 days or 5 weeks to review, we hope that you can use the Calc Medic AP Exam Review Course to help your students prepare for the AP Calculus Exam (sneak peek can be found here).

When you are considering how you are going to most effectively use the Review Course with your students, consider these three approaches:
1. Use class time for the Calc Medic Review Course
If you want to make sure that all of your students are watching the videos and trying the practice problems, build the review course right into your class time. Have students use laptops or their phones in class to work their way through the videos and practice questions on the review course.
Here is what the teacher would need to do to prepare:
Create a reasonable schedule for students based on how much time you have before the exam. We are working on pacing guides for teachers with 1, 2, 3, or 4 weeks to review.
Make copies of the video guided notes, practice multiple choice questions, and practice free response questions + rubrics. You will get access to these files once you have your class signed up.
At the end of each week, we have students hand in their completed guided notes, completed MC practice, and their completed (and self graded) free response questions.
2. Assign the Calc Medic Review Course as homework
Calc Medic has several review activities that you can do in your classes. Use class time for these awesome review activities and then ask students to complete assignments from the Review Course as homework. If you go this route, sticking to a schedule is critical, and it helps to hold students accountable for completing work. In this model, we still suggest having students hand in their completed guided notes, completed MC practice, and their completed (and self graded) free response questions as often as you feel is needed.
3. Offer the Calc Medic Review Course as an optional support
Maybe you already have your exam review routine dialed in. You have a set of activities that you know is going to get students ready. But there are always students that can benefit by having additional resources outside the classroom. The Review Course can be completed by individual students with a go-at-your-own-pace schedule. This way, students can spend extra time and energy in the areas they need the most help. While we have found that the accountability of doing the Review Course as a whole class has been most effective, it can work for individual students who have the motivation to put in the work.
We have a new feature that allows you to set up your own cohort and then invite students to pay for it individually. This works well for classes where only some of the students will be using the course.
Let's CRUSH this Exam in May!
