Since the 1990's the graphing calculator has been used in my Calculus AP class.  For many of those years  my students had a weekly lab activity that incorporated the graphing calculator.  These labs helped my students gain a deeper conceptual understanding for many concepts from the College Board curriculum for Calculus AB. Many of these labs are available by using the links on this page.  I have recently added some other labs.
