AP Calculus AB/Calculus BC

Beginning with the 2011 AP Calculus AB and Calculus BC Exams, the format of the free-response sections will be modified so that Part A (graphing calculator required) consists of two problems to be completed in 30 minutes, and Part B (no calculator allowed) consists of four problems to be completed in 60 minutes. During the timed portion for Part B, students are permitted to continue to work on problems in Part A, but they are not permitted to use a calculator during this time. There is no change in the format of the multiple-choice sections. Please see the AP Calculus Course DescriptionEffective Fall 2010, for more details.
