Math students who are on track to take AP Calculus AB or BC often opt instead to take AP Statistics, in hopes of averting AP rigor on top of the challenge of calculus. However, with the new school year comes a new option of a regular Calculus course. “[The course] doesn’t have to follow the AP curriculum, which is pre-approved by the college board,” math teacher Ms. Mary Seppala said.

Ultimately, the goal of adding a regular Calculus course is to give students a head start before college Calculus. “It’ll be the same material, but delivered in a way that’s easier to manage… and [students] don’t have to take the AP test at the end, which means they can spend more time on harder concepts, and it can be tailored to the individual student,” Seppala said.
