Calculus for AP® is designed specifically for the AP Curriculum Framework and exam. For the first time, Ron Larson has partnered with an AP Calculus teacher to develop a program that meets the needs of the AP Calculus course while helping students develop mathematical knowledge conceptually. With a clear focus on course demands, Calculus for AP introduces content in the sequence most preferred by AP Calculus teachers, resulting in more complete content coverage.
Dr. Ron Larson is a professor of mathematics at The Pennsylvania State University, where he has taught since 1970. He received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Colorado and is considered the pioneer of using multimedia to enhance the learning of mathematics, having authored over 30 software titles since 1990. Dr. Larson conducts numerous seminars and in-service workshops for math educators around the country about using computer technology as an instructional tool and motivational aid. He is the recipient of the 2014 William Holmes McGuffey Longevity Award for CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTAL FUNCTIONS, the 2014 Text and Academic Authors Association TEXTY Award for PRECALCULUS, the 2012 William Holmes McGuffey Longevity Award for CALCULUS: AN APPLIED APPROACH, and the 1996 Text and Academic Authors Association TEXTY Award for INTERACTIVE CALCULUS (a complete text on CD-ROM that was the first mainstream college textbook to be offered on the Internet). Dr. Larson authors numerous textbooks including the best-selling Calculus series published by Cengage Learning.
Paul Battaglia received his B.S. in actuarial science from the Pennsylvania State University. After some time as an actuarial analyst, he began his teaching career in New Jersey. Since doing so, he has spent over 15 years teaching all levels of mathematics, including Advanced Placement Calculus. He was instrumental in beginning the AP Calculus (BC) program at Manasquan High School. Battaglia has been a featured speaker—both in and out of his district—including speaking about his book at the NJEA teacher’s convention and presenting at the AP Annual Conference. His current interests include QR codes in the classroom, integration of tablets and mobile devices for classroom use, and gamification as an assessment model.
