Calculus from a
Student Perspective
During the five week period you will be writing your own booklet on what you
learned this year in Calculus I and II AP. Time will be given to write
your chapters in class. All manuscripts will prepared in Microsoft Word.
Guidelines
 Booklet will contain 4 chapters
 Introduction  About the Author
 Include your picture, a short description about yourself, and your
academic goals.
 Chapter 1  Limits and Continuity
 Your ideas must include what it means for a limit to exist, how limits
fail to exist, a graphical understanding of limits, a numerical
understanding of limits, and how limits impact the continuity of a
function.
 Chapter 2  Derivatives
 Your ideas must include a graphical interpretation of a derivative, a
numerical interpretation of a derivative, and analytical definition of a
derivative. Include as many derivative rules as needed to explain
your understanding of a derivative.
 Chapter 3  Antiderivatives
 Your ideas must include the relationship between a derivative and an antiderivative, indefinite integrals, definite integrals, and the
accumulation function. You must include an approximation method that
can be used to approximate a definite integral.
 Chapter 4  Application Problem
 Select at least one problem that shows how calculus can be applied to
another field of science such as biology, physics, or chemistry.
 You may also create your own problem based upon one that you solved
during the year to show how calculus can be used to solve a real life
situation.
 Use the equation editor in Microsoft Word to produce all equations.
 Use the graphing calculator to create all graphs.
 Your own hand drawings can be scanned in to enhance your presentation.
 Always keep two copies of your document. Create two
files and continually back up your work.
 Each chapter will be produced as a separate file and then
you will be merging the files into one document.
 All books must be printed and ready for binding by the completion of the
class period on the due date. On that day you will bind the books using
directions distributed that day. Books will be read and evaluated on the
day of your final exam.
