Local Teachers Complete Calculus Institute
The following teachers completed the Advanced Placement Calculus Institute for high school teachers held at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
The Institute trained and motivated teachers to prepare students for Advanced Placement classes and college-level work. Teachers received the tools to teach their students to stretch their minds and succeed in challenging courses such as Advanced Placement Calculus. The course was designed to help teachers return to their classrooms prepared to show their students the wonders of math – not only what it can do, but what students can do when they master math concepts.
AP Calculus classes help students because the course consists of a full high school academic year of work that is comparable to calculus courses in colleges and universities. Students who take an AP course in calculus can seek college credit, college placement, or both, from colleges and universities.
