LEAF Academy is looking for an experienced calculus educator who can teach AP Calculus AB, and AP Calculus BC.
In AP Calculus AB, the focus is on applications of differential and integral calculus. Students work on understanding the theoretical basis and solve problems by applying the knowledge and skills. This course is designed to be the equivalent of the first-semester college calculus course devoted to topics in differential and integral calculus.
In AP Calculus BC, the focus is to explore the concepts, methods, and applications of differential and integral calculus, including topics such as parametric, polar, and vector functions, and series. AP Calculus BC is equivalent to a first-semester college calculus course and the subsequent single-variable calculus course.
The combination with physics and/or chemistry is desirable.
The ability to differentiate in curriculum and instruction, and curriculum development are desirable. A passion for Entrepreneurial leadership is also welcome.
Course specific skills: multi-representational approach to calculus, with concepts, results, and problems expressed graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally, clear communication of methods, reasoning, justifications, and conclusions
Covered units in Calculus AB: Limits and continuity, differentiation: definition and fundamental properties, differentiation: composite, implicit, and inverse functions, contextual applications of differentiation, analytical applications of differentiation, integration and accumulation of change, differential equations, applications of integrations
Covered units in Calculus BC: as Calculus AB + parametric equations, polar coordinates, and vector-valued functions, infinite sequences and series We teach both of this course within one school year in the following order: Calculus AB, Calculus BC
