It’s been said many times before–teachers are superheroes. Unlike the super-human variety we see in movies, AP® Calculus teachers do not have access to radioactive spiders or strength-enhancing serums to give them their powers. Instead, they rely on high-quality AP Calculus teacher resources to strengthen their classroom instruction and better support their students. This is exactly why our team of former AP teachers and UWorld Learning Tools for AP Courses authors have compiled a list of quality AP Calculus AB and BC teacher materials for you.

Tips for Finding Quality AP Calculus Resources

When searching for resources to support your AP instruction, it’s important to make sure they are credible. Here are a few ways you can ensure your resources have a high level of quality!

  • Utilize tools that industry experts have created. People without the proper subject credentials are less reliable than AP teachers, published journals, and businesses that sell educational products. For example, UWorld's Learning Tools for AP Courses exclusively include content written by former AP teachers and subject-matter experts.
  • With other educators in your district's AP network, it’s a great idea to trade resources and ideas. You can network with AP educators outside of your school when you go to professional development workshops in your subject area.
  • Textbooks are great resources to use. Teachers can get the materials they need just as quickly from online versions of many textbooks as they can from other websites. These digital versions are additionally more reliable because they are the most current.

For teachers who want to enhance their AP instruction with a quality resource, UWorld’s Learning Tools for AP Courses is an innovative program that helps students strengthen their understanding of course concepts needed for AP success. Discover how we can help your AP program today.
