2010 AP® Calculus BC Free-Response Questions

New Review

What do a zoo, snow, and a moving particle have in common? The six free-response items from the 2010 AP® Calculus BC exam allow teachers and pupils see how items may show up in context. Three of the questions are from only the BC portion of the course, while the other three also appear on the AB exam that add the particle motion, differential equations, and Taylor Series content.
