In addition to prepping for my workshop for next week, I have been working on reviewing AP Calculus (AB) topics. This will be a new course for me in the fall. I know many of the topics in AP Calculus, because I have taught a non-AP calculus course over the past few years. However, there are some topics that are not as familiar.

If anyone wants to steer me in the right direction with this, feel free to post in the comments.
